While specific industries have their own unique challenges and motivations, productivity is central to manufacturers across the board. Continuously improving productivity is essential for competitive success.
Hexagon's Manufacturing Intelligence division helps customers put data to work to improve productivity and efficiency while embedding quality throughout the product lifecycle.
Our manufacturing intelligence technology enables manufacturers to access, analyse and actively use data from all the key stages of the manufacturing process. Through an unparalleled portfolio of digital manufacturing technologies spanning CAE solutions for design and engineering, CAD CAM and complementary software for production applications, metrology hardware and software solutions, as well as data management and analytics tools, we empower technology users throughout the process with deep and actionable insight into product quality, ensuring that quality drives productivity.
Together, our manufacturing intelligence software solutions create a digital thread throughout the manufacturing process, enabling the entire organisation to take a holistic approach and work together with speed and confidence to achieve the desired outcomes. 

Our hardware solutions use metrology to bring real-world physical attributes to the digital thread to improve the accuracy of operations. The digital thread ties together a connected ecosystem for manufacturing and, with the addition of domain expertise and intelligence, enables continuous learning and improvement.
