Digital technologies and the rise of global networks have made manufacturing unrecognizable from even a generation ago and are accelerating and streamlining the entire product manufacturing value chain, from R&D through production and on to customer delivery and support.

Manufacturers are under pressure to fill orders quickly while cutting costs and achieving a high standard of quality. While each company and industry are unique, common characteristics are shaping their new manufacturing requirements, including:

  • The rise of global manufacturing networks and capabilities driven by demanding customers.
  • A functionality-shift from hardware to software and IoT that is accelerating time to market.
  • The need to optimize and manage physical networks to increase flexibility and reduce operating costs.
  • The importance of supporting end-to-end Manufacturing Operations Management to improve quality and controls.
