The Manufacturing Revolution: What it means for Procurement

Over the last few years, uncertainty and volatility have become the new norm but so have rapid innovation, new business models and new forms of competition. In this environment, manufacturers are quickly realizing that to achieve above average growth they must pursue aggressive strategies with focused investments in technology, R&D and towards enhancing orchestration of the value chain.

A global manufacturing revolution is underway. It is already impacting how products are designed, made, delivered and serviced. As manufacturers hunt for growth, they are looking to new products, new markets and embracing digital technologies. One thing is clear, however, data is the essential element that will define the future of manufacturing. How it is generated, analyzed and harnessed will impact the entire value chain to ultimately deliver better products, faster.
