Part 4 looks to the future. Change often comes with potential benefit. Increased efficiency can have a cascading effect on the success of a business.

3D printing company Ultimaker found in a survey that the cost of U.S. manufacturing is $4,258,341 per minute, with a corresponding revenue of $4,280,821. That works out to a margin for profitability per minute of $22,480. That’s a high margin, meaning major time and cost savings can come from minor changes in efficiency.
