Manufacturing & Assembly
Strategic, data-driven investments can help you make improvements across the value chain. These include building new capabilities, uncovering efficiency gains and incorporating new technologies.
The disruption and economic hardship caused by the ongoing pandemic have increased the urgency to accelerate smart manufacturing initiatives for future competitiveness.
For manufacturers, productivity is paramount.
If you are a manufacturer, no matter what your product or service, chances are you have a demanding customer at the end of the assembly line.
You must reduce costs while maintaining quality expectations, using each resource as efficiently as possible to reap the most benefit, including everything from staffing to physical materials. You’re pressed by customer expectations and competition to meet high delivery and service standards.
You know that inventory management is vital for the success of your business. This is because you need to be able to maintain the right balance of stock in the warehouses. However, managing inventory levels in a cost-effective and revenue-focused way can be very difficult.
Sales forecasting is a critical leading indicator for ordering and holding optimal levels of raw materials, finished products as well as for production planning to avoid the risk of excessive customer lead times.
You might aspire to improve processes, operations and finances as a start before tackling a technology investment. Or you might be ready for a digital transformation and technology that will help you gain visibility over your supply chain, inventory and operations, and better serve customers who expect greater digital capabilities.
