The Future of Manufacturing Operations Management
It is inevitable that tomorrow’s production environment will become more complex to operate. On the other hand, we see a great set of emerging technologies to offer a helping hand to overcome future challenges.
Our study indicates that 44% of companies reported challenges with transparency on performance, and 37% indicated a lack of process control in production. The reason for that could be that the present manufacturing operations IT landscapes are not fit‐for-purpose based on our findings and experience. Multiple systems used for managing manufacturing operations lead to a low data utilisation and minimal insights gained from shop‐floor data.
