Redistributed Manufacturing (RDM)

Digital manufacturing tools and online platforms are changing manufacturing. These changes won’t just alter factories, but design, material sourcing and lifecycle, the environment, labour and consumption. This is a world where mass manufacturing means engagement by the masses rather than en masse.

For a more detailed explanation, see What is RDM?

The Projects

We’ve identified a set of projects that help us understand what manufacturing might look like in this possible future. We’ve organised them in layers of a stack – a model of manufacturing systems that shows how different kinds of change relate to the whole system: from the planet, to people.
