Our company, Linemark, strives for Industry 4.0, and it requires a complete overview. It starts with receiving files and finishes with billing the customer. Currently, we can only accommodate this type of workflow for templated products. The one-off jobs take too much time to set up. We also have to use several pieces of software to translate file/job instructions. Great Article. Thank you
