IDC Manufacturing Forum
Today, survival of the fittest is linked not to size or strength but to an ability to change — to move quickly, adapt, seize opportunities, and be agile. In the age of COVID-19, supply chains are experiencing pressures unlike any we have seen in a generation. COVID-19 has exposed a material lack of visibility, flexibility, and adaptability that should be inherent to the manufacturing industry.
- The importance of visibility, agility, flexibility, and resiliency in manufacturing, is now on the tip of everybody's tongue and is taking on a profoundly more important role. Therefore the supply chain control tower, indeed supply chain orchestration, becomes a critical capability.
- Without a doubt, manufacturers that can establish flexible and resilient supply chains, innovate products and services, ramp up production of certain products rapidly, and create value from data-driven services will be among the winners in the post-COVID-19 period.
- The increasing automation of production raises the cooperation between man and machine to a higher level. The era of super workers supported by collaborative robots (cobots, AGVs), equipped with technologies extending the senses (VR/AR) and physical capabilities (exoskeletons) is coming.
Because the stakes are so high, manufacturers have made concerted efforts to accelerate their digital transformation journeys.
