Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners. Managers of these traditional factories say the feeling is akin to flying blind. These are operations where plant floors, front offices, and suppliers operate in independent silos, where managers have only hazy visibility into downtime and quality problems, and where the root causes of inefficiencies are rarely understood or addressed.

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software can help your company keep up with the increasing complexity of developing today’s high-tech products. While smaller companies may use relatively simple Product Data Management (PDM) tools, larger companies rely on full-featured PLM systems that help automate processes and share data across global supply chains. Mid-size companies can feel stuck because PDM is too basic, but PLM feels out of reach. This resource will help you: • Recognize why “simple” solutions fall short and do not support your capabilities • Better connect to customers and the supply chain • Drive higher product development speed • Get started with the right PLM solution Midsize manufacturers need a system that quickly delivers the core capabilities they need to streamline product development but also gives them room to grow value over time. So, what’s the right size PLM to fit a midsized high-tech company? Download this resource and take a look.

Industrial Equipment Manufacturers have to connect closely with customers and introduce new products quickly and efficiently to meet their needs. While smaller Industrial Equipment Manufacturers may be able to control, access, and share product data with relatively simple Product Data Management (PDM) tools, larger Industrial Equipment Manufacturers rely on full-featured PLM systems that help automate processes and share data across global supply chains. Industrial Equipment Manufacturer companies may find themselves in-between because: • Product and organizational complexity drive them beyond basic PDM capabilities • A full-featured PLM implementation may feel out of reach They need to choose a system that quickly delivers the core capabilities they need to streamline product development but also gives them room to grow value over time. What’s the right size PLM to fit an Industrial Equipment Manufacturer? Let’s take a look.

A&D manufacturers and their suppliers now depend more than ever on global supply chains. As they reach across time zones, languages and cultures, supply chains have to work around challenges that build up costs and drag down production schedules. Communication between distributed engineering and production centers can be labored and error-prone. These problems are often compounded by repetitive programming, incomplete simulations, time-intensive production methods, and concern that the shop floor may not be working with current data. Ideally, global companies should be able to design products at any location and produce them at selected sites, with all stakeholders from design to the shop floor working concurrently from a single unique global data source. Understand how manufacturing companies can deliver machined parts faster and increase revenue by reducing costs – despite operating globally across time zones and cultures.

As a small-to-midsize fabricated metals manufacturer serving large customers within complex global supply chains, how do you maintain preferred vendor status? The whole world is your competition so you need to step up to meet increasingly demanding customer expectations. Your customers will expect mass personalization with shorter lead times whether the order is large or small—without sacrificing compliance with their industry’s quality requirements. To meet these demands—despite a skills shortage and volatile material costs and availability—you’ve got to put digital transformation at the top of your agenda.

In a rapidly advancing and changing market, retailers need to be prepared for the unexpected, from the impacts of new payment options, to the challenges of new entrants and innovations, increasingly complex global supply chains and digitally empowered customers looking to direct their own shopping experience. While many retailers continue to keep in-store and on-line interactions separate, the leading retailers understand that all channels must be seamlessly integrated to help ensure success — including optimizing logistics for a smarter shopping experience, managing or sourcing on-line inventory to respond to consumer demand, striking the right balance between customer satisfaction and maximising return, and space optimization in the store itself.

The role of analytics in managing, improving and ultimately transforming supply chains cannot be understated. But what about the analytics themselves? FICO’s Zahir Balaporia and renowned author Tom Davenport use the term “The Analytics Supply Chain” to reflect that the actual analytics themselves parallel supply chains, with inherent challenges and problems if things “get stuck.” Rethinking analytics in these terms can not only improve supply chain performance, but also any other business problems you seek to solve. This article targets: · Steps in the analytics supply chain and the vital role of data and analytic models · How your predictions, recommendations and insights need to rely on similar attributes to finished manufactured products; · Key questions to ask yourself in determining where you need to fix your analytics supply chain.
