Successful manufacturers are embracing change and challenging the status quo.
Such a move brings a wealth of opportunities to drive productivity improvements, cost savings, market differentiation, customer insights and new revenue streams.
The challenge for businesses lies in how to harness the disruptive force of these technologies and translate it into competitive advantage.
So why are many manufacturers still not realising the step-change improvements that are available to them?
Manufacturing worldwide accounts for approximately 16% of global GDP and 14% of employment. However, the way in which it contributes to the economy is changing and taking a dynamic shift as nations mature; in economies today, manufacturing is promoting innovation, productivity, and trade. Manufacturers have also begun to consume more services and are relying more heavily on them to operate.
