As the industry continues to undergo an ebb-and-flow cycle, conquering economic conditions, controlling rising costs, and combating intense competition remain imperatives for success. Driven to make an imprint on the leading edge, manufacturers are rethinking the way they operate by looking to gain higher productivity from their assets and adopting next-generation technologies that go beyond functionality to deliver flexibility.
Challenges and opportunities
Building growth momentum in emerging economies: When the going gets global, the global get local. Fresh investments in ‘core’ manufacturing functions such as plant commissioning, production, sourcing, design, and engineering are largely being made in emerging economies due to the advantages of lower costs, large markets, and customer proximity.
Bridging disconnect between plant floor and enterprise: Getting complex manufacturing systems to talk with enterprise systems is key to improved profitability, competitiveness and innovation.
Managing complex supply chains and varying demand levels: With distributed assets, supply chains are getting tougher to manage and disruptions can stall or slow down production and impact revenue. Reducing such occurrences calls for strong forecasting and planning, supplemented by highly integrated systems and processes that facilitate seamless information visibility across the enterprise.
Creating a sustainable edge: There is more to sustainability than conservation of natural resources — it holds immense potential to emerge as a competitive differentiator. To fully exploit this potential, manufacturers must focus on optimized value chains, cleaner manufacturing and materials practices, in addition to collaborating and forming partnerships at all levels — with scientific bodies, governments and social organizations.
