Achieve process agility

Discrete manufacturers deal with inflation, margin pressures, and rising interest rates. Plus, companies are tackling the uncertainty of customer-driven change, all while needing to increase inventory turnover. To thrive, organizations need to innovate business models toward digital Industry 4.0 mandates and deliver products and services more rapidly, so they can keep pace with customer expectations and the competition. For this, discrete manufacturers will need to stay sustainable, resilient, and agile – for instance, in supply chain management – while continuously transforming and improving their processes.
