A new kind of global manufacturing company is on the rise — a networked enterprise that leverages technology to respond quickly and decisively to changing conditions yet can also pursue long-term opportunities. To respond quickly despite geographically dispersed suppliers and customers, these organizations can identify products, parts and components across all the data sources that hold useful information about those items. Product quality is top of mind for all of these firms. The ability to produce things that align with evolving customer needs but can still be serviced easily is the number one challenge influencing activities of these firms across the world. The good news is that these firms have more data to do their jobs than ever before. However, research shows that only 17% are fully satisfied with their ability to use this data (e.g., maintenance contracts, technician documents, PDFs) to optimize the supply chain, deliver service excellence and optimize the customer experience.
The presentation will cover:
- The ROI of establishing a single, unified view of all product content
- Building blocks to modernize your manufacturing activities
- Technology tools that minimize complexity & facilitate growth
- Success stories from leading brands such as Siemens and Alstom
