To adapt to an ever-changing world, industrial manufacturers must redefine their processes and create value in industry value networks.

In a rapidly changing world, manufacturing companies are facing diverse challenges

Major trends are reshaping the Industrial Manufacturing industry.

Customer-driven change

Customers expect products that fit their needs at competitive prices and in a pay-as-you-go and usage-based pricing model.

The key is to capture customer requirements effectively and drive new business models and mass customization. 

Globalization and right-shoring

To make the best use of regulatory and location advantages industrial manufacturers need to be able to shift resources, production, and financial funds around the globe flexibly.  

Considering a right-shoring strategy, manufacturers companies must capture, analyze, and manage all supply chain costs to establish a total landed cost analysis.

Digital is the new norm

Technology provides a mechanism to respond to increased customer expectations and changing demands.

Still, it poses challenges from organizational setup to having the right talent to operate in a cyber-secure environment.
