Advanced Electronics Industry
Win the next normal with technology in automotive and industrial manufacturing
Why does it matter?
Digital technology and analytics are changing the automotive and manufacturing industries … and we need to catch up
What can we do?
Value of Digital and Analytics such as increased effectiveness and reduced cost is distributed across the entire value chain.
Research and Development
The changes confronting R&D leaders, driven by software, Industry 4.0 and digitization are significant: data flooding in from customers, devices, and sensors, combined with powerful analytical tools, are creating new sources of insight to fuel the development of products and services. New materials and breakthrough manufacturing techniques may vastly change the economics of many offerings. Customer behaviors and demand change quickly given the variety of offerings and the possibilities to compare products.
Current structures and available talent are not up to the new challenges in the market. Adapting to the situation by focusing on value drivers and keeping an eye on the trends is key for success.
Supply Chain Management
Today’s trends of digitization, Industry 4.0, and supply chain resilience force companies to rethink the way they design their supply chains. While a strong need exists to adapt to the connected world and reach the next horizon of operational effectiveness, companies should also explore the opportunities in emerging digital supply chain business models.
Eliminating today’s digital waste and adopting new technologies are the keys to increasing supply chain operational effectiveness. The potential impact of Supply Chain 4.0 is huge—a reduction of 75 percent in lost sales, up to 30 percent fewer transport and warehousing costs, and a decrease of up to 80 percent in administration costs. All while cutting inventories up to 75 percent.
