Assembling the right components for your lean, connected, and digitally transformed future
Today’s Market Dynamics
Whether producing made to stock, made to order, or assemble to order, keeping assembly lines going and distribution channels open amid wave after wave of the COVID 19 pandemic has been no small feat.
Between supply chain disruptions, shifting consumer demand patterns, changing technologies, rising materials costs, and all the employee and broader labor market issues of the day, it may seem like every day brings a new and different challenge.
What hasn’t changed is the need to boost production yield, expand throughput and ensure end-product quality. And quality control still means focusing on cutting warranty costs and minimizing product recalls – it all fits together with big bottom-line impacts.
What seems to always change is consumer behavior and how they engage with your brand. For example, now many products have their own hashtags, fan clubs, or online complaint forums. On the technology front, so many new possibilities have opened for evolving processes throughout the organization that constantly innovating has become the norm.
In fact, Gartner recently confirmed the multi-directional nature of transformation in manufacturing, with two noteworthy new opportunities coming by way of blending products and the services that come with them, and the emergence of Equipment as a Service business models.
Key Market Factors
- Ongoing supply chain disruptions
- Shifting consumer demand patterns
- Rising costs and tighter margins
- Employee and labor market issues
- Stiffer competition
With so much flux in the operating environment, and so many opportunities to pursue, could any choice you make be the best one? What’s the right way to determine better versus best?
