      Key Trends in the Manufacturing Industry

      Connected factories and integrated supply chains are still discovering the full potential of data, analytics, and insights to unlock hidden capacity in manufacturing. Yet even as the industry explores this trend, a new one is emerging, and that is the trend away from mass production and toward mass customization. Higher bandwidth networks, low latency, and interoperability will enable this advanced automation and customization.

      Flexibility in the Manufacturing Industry

      Early automation was useful only for making a single product. Today, with the agility of smart manufacturing, interoperability, and modular factory design, automation can be leveraged to switch production and make what is needed when it is needed, improving accessibility and reducing waste for a greener and more equitable future.

      Supplier Relationships and the Importance of Collaboration

      Automation and energy efficiency can dramatically improve productivity and profitability on the factory floor. Collaboration is the key to new efficiencies and environmental benefits, which add value for stakeholders while also making flexible factories more customer-centric and competitive. Vendors who take a holistic view of interplay and scalability will have the advantage in this transition.
