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.

Manufacturing is on the move. Leading companies are relocating near supply and demand, as well as the best talent. They’re digitizing operations to automate critical processes and enable crowdsharing. Manufacturers are building innovation hubs to accelerate R&D. They’re wooing – and retaining – talent with continuous knowledge sharing and professional development opportunities. And they’re using an array of technologies to capture and leverage the insights and skills of their best thinkers: industry visionaries, emerging technology experts, and process reengineers. Manufacturers are doing this quietly and consistently. To take aim at the target of market leadership, it pays to draw closer – and then closer still. Are you ready?

Consumers anoint—and abandon—providers with breathtaking speed, causing seismic shifts in the market. This new era of consumers is also increasingly difficult to define, no longer neatly fitting into traditional marketing segments. With the rise of emerging markets and micro-segments, manufacturing is confronting the challenge of mass customization. The question is not if or when but how: Customers are demanding variety, and manufacturing companies must deliver. What’s key to making this work? Big data visibility, flexible processes, and an agile ecosystem that can move swiftly to serve an increasingly fragmenting, but exceptionally demanding consumer base.

The Role of Additive Manufacturing in Production of the Future Additive manufacturing (AM) is the process of adding layers of material — most commonly plastics or resins, and increasingly metals — to produce products according to precise digital plans. With AM, products are produced using only the material necessary, therefore minimizing scrap. Modern digital technology is transforming every industry, including manufacturing. Yet in The Rise of Smart Operations, a survey of machinery manufacturers conducted by UPS and IDC, roughly one-half of the respondents said their digital or “smart” operations were lagging the competition or were at a significant disadvantage. Manufacturers will also find practical solutions they can consider implementing today to incorporate smarter operations in their production processes of the future.

Your goal is clear-produce high-quality goods while optimizing resources at every step of production. And in today's uncertain economy, cost-control efforts may never have been more important. Unscheduled downtime because of equipment failure can have a serious impact on your organization's bottom line. Download this white paper from IBM, and learn the basics of predictive maintenance, the benefits it provides manufacturing operations and the underlying technologies that make it possible. Predictive analytics helps you in a number of ways: identify when equipment is likely to fail or need maintenance and take action to maximize uptime and reduce future warranty claims costs; optimize allocated labor resources and spare part inventories, helping eliminate undue maintenance, prevent downtime and reduce inventory costs; and determine why certain production runs fail more often than others, identify the cause and analyze whether those runs warrant a recall.

Manufacturing and product companies are facing critical challenges. To survive in the new global economy, companies need to continuously reinvent themselves. They need to rapidly add new products and acquire new businesses. They need to build new partnerships and channels. They can’t depend on the same set of suppliers tomorrow that they do today. And they can’t expect to do business the same way in new and emerging markets. For these reasons, enterprises need a new kind of ERP, one that’s faster to deploy and can: Adapt very quickly Go into the hands of employees, customers and partners immediately, with little or no training Provide continuous visibility into their operations It’s no surprise that CIOs, manufacturing managers and operational executives are looking for new solutions. They have to ?nd solutions to get the three strategic capabilities they need to succeed: greater operational agility, the ability to collaborate and continuous visibility.

There is little question that cloud is well established as a way to deliver business applications. Based on IDC research, over 70% of manufacturing companies are using hosted applications somewhere within their supply chain, with another 25% considering it. The most popular supply chain management (SCM) application areas are transportation related (transportation management, global trade management), where the "network effect" (i.e., carrier pooling, regulatory impact) can leverage both shared knowledge and existing connectivity along with sales and operations planning, demand signal management, and business intelligence/analytics. The concern that cloud is "risky" is increasingly taking a back seat to the perceived benefits of the technology. Indeed, those benefits, both achieved and anticipated, are significant, including cost, speed of implementation, and the ability to "consume" new capabilities and functionality easily and transparently.

With your manufacturing operations already running close to capacity, the traditional ways of gaining new capacity is to make large capital investments, or to outsource some of the new manufacturing demand. These are challenging tactics as getting new resources in line will take time and there is no guarantee that the numbers will continue to climb. You do, however, have a third option available to you.

While a manufacturing execution system (MES) is often viewed as “just” a tool for helping the “shop people” go about their day-to-day tasks, the fact is that such a system also has more than ample potential to help transform the shop floor into a business center of excellence, and propel the company forward as it targets market leadership. Performance efficiencies gained with MES can open up the possibility of increasing output and profitability, all with existing production assets. MES can offer a quick, hassle-free way to turn shop floor operations into a corporate center of excellence.
