Stratasys Founder and Chairman Inducted into IndustryWeek’s Manufacturing Hall of Fame

Crump is the inventor of the Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) method of 3D printing, the most widely used additive manufacturing process. Earlier this month, Crump became the chairman of Stratasys Ltd., a new corporate entity formed by the merger of Stratasys Inc. and Objet Ltd.

3D printing (or additive manufacturing) has become more mainstream in the last few years, and although many believe it is a new process, it has existed for 25 years. Formerly called “rapid prototyping,” 3D printing was developed originally for prototyping purposes. However it is now widely used as a manufacturing process for producing finished goods in low volume.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by IndustryWeek for the achievements our team has made,” said Crump. “This recognition demonstrates the impact that 3D printing is having on the manufacturing industry and it portends a bright future for the technology.”

2012 marks the fourth year of IndustryWeek’s Manufacturing Hall of Fame. The publication accepted nominations from its readers and chose ten inductees, including leaders from Boeing Co., Lockheed Martin Corp. and others. Past Honorees include such names as Steve Jobs, Lee Iacocca and Jack Welch. The individuals recognized have a history of significant achievements, and they are examples of character, talent, drive and productive work that resulted in outstanding success in their respective organizations. In general, inductees’ achievements fall into one or more of the following categories:

  • Significantly improving manufacturing efficiency and productivity through their process and/or technology innovations.
  • Creating manufacturing companies — and even entire industries — from the ground up, through their product ideas and/or innovative approaches to doing business.
  • Establishing widely accepted best practices in operational areas such as (but not limited to) management, product development, safety, purchasing, quality, and supply chain and logistics.
  • Setting new standards for manufacturers in areas such as sustainability and corporate responsibility.
  • Revitalizing organizations and operations through continuous improvement efforts and/or innovative business practices.
  • Influencing and supporting as well as advocating for the cause of U.S. manufacturing through their research, writings, activism, policies or thought leadership.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.
