Today, manufacturing is about more than the mighty machine and measuring the performance of individual plants. It has become a much broader strategic lever, integral and critical to a company's success.
Within a comprehensive manufacturing strategy, manufacturing can encompass everything from innovation and talent management to cross-functional coordination and alignment.
Having a manufacturing strategy means aligning with overall company goals and objectives.
It also means bringing a flexible, customer-centric approach to new product development and delivery that exceeds customer expectations and generates the best cost position possible.
