For manufacturing decision makers, the ability to adapt production in line with rapidly changing market conditions and consumer preferences is key. Accordingly, their focus is on creating a flexible, digitally-enabled manufacturing environment that serves the need for transparency and flexibility. Within this focus, priorities around cost, food safety and quality, data security, workforce transformation, yield generation and greater localization all need to be balanced. These factors are putting pressure on producers to digitalize and operate as a connected enterprise.
Over the course of this paper we will explore how your organization can leverage new technologies to achieve flexible manufacturing and distribution, enabling you to meet the needs of a changing marketplace.
