Keeping Pace to Remain Competitive on a Global Scale
A global industrial revolution means scores of countries have joined the manufacturing playing field, competing for the ability to produce goods at the most competitive rate.
The U.S.-based manufacturing enterprise has changed dramatically over the past few decades in order to adapt to this global competition. U.S. manufacturers cannot compete on labor rates, but they can compete by leveraging available technology to produce the highest quality goods the fastest. Because of this, many look at investments in technology as a way to produce the efficiencies that allow them to compete with lower cost countries.
Besides implementing foundational improvement initiatives – such as Lean manufacturing or other best practices surrounding Continuous Improvement – high tech manufacturers look to:
- Software and Related IT Resources: in order to standardize and document processes, remain in compliance with regulatory agencies, and access the necessary data to identify areas for improvement.
- Automation: as a way to improve consistency, quality, and speed of production.
- High Tech Machinery/Capital Equipment: as a competitive advantage to more manual processes that slow down production or rely on skill sets that are difficult to staff.
But in addition to the need for speed, information about the competitive landscape drives business decisions. For many, success means keeping pace with manufacturing as it adapts to its surroundings – whether that’s through better access to information around training, regulations, quality, and labor issues, or a keen understanding of product technology and market trends.
Some of the mission-critical issues Manufacturing Business Technology covers via its website and e-newsletters with in-depth articles, blogs and product updates include hardware and networking, ERP platforms, control systems integration, plant and network security, and software implementation.
