Manufacturing is on the move. Leading companies are relocating near supply and demand, as well as the best talent. They’re digitizing operations to automate critical processes and enable crowdsharing. Manufacturers are building innovation hubs to accelerate R&D. They’re wooing – and retaining – talent with continuous knowledge sharing and professional development opportunities. And they’re using an array of technologies to capture and leverage the insights and skills of their best thinkers: industry visionaries, emerging technology experts, and process reengineers. Manufacturers are doing this quietly and consistently. To take aim at the target of market leadership, it pays to draw closer – and then closer still. Are you ready?

Brains, not brawn: Fewer companies than ever before are shackled to the tyranny of the volume play: producing vast quantities of goods to reap razor-thin margins. Instead, manufacturing has been freed to search for the next big idea – and many of them. What’s empowering this idea revolution: automated processes, new technologies at the ready, and a thorough understanding of R&D’s costs and contributions? Realizing that there is strength in numbers, companies are creating virtual innovation hubs with valued partners, joining industry consortia, and opening up product development to crowdsourcing. What’s common to all: Companies are drawing closer to epicenters of talent, demand, and supply and moving faster than ever to commercialize great ideas. Are you ready?

Consumers anoint—and abandon—providers with breathtaking speed, causing seismic shifts in the market. This new era of consumers is also increasingly difficult to define, no longer neatly fitting into traditional marketing segments. With the rise of emerging markets and micro-segments, manufacturing is confronting the challenge of mass customization. The question is not if or when but how: Customers are demanding variety, and manufacturing companies must deliver. What’s key to making this work? Big data visibility, flexible processes, and an agile ecosystem that can move swiftly to serve an increasingly fragmenting, but exceptionally demanding consumer base.

Now new imperatives such as proximity to emerging market demand, innovation, and talent development are rising to the fore. As a consequence, companies are moving past labor-cost arbitrage and operational efficiency to reinvent the manufacturing ecosystem. The name of this new approach? Next-shoring.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting our world in ways that were unimaginable 10 years ago—collecting data on everything we do and using it to streamline our daily activities. In doing so, IoT is changing the way that consumers think about service. Service organizations must be prepared to support these new customer expectations to ensure continued satisfaction to strengthen and foster loyalty. Additionally, IoT is making its way into the enterprise, especially among organizations in industries like utilities, oil and gas, medical devices, manufacturing and telecommunications. Connected devices enable more efficient processes for maintenance and repair by constantly providing information on machines’ performance, environmental conditions, and possible failures. For example, a connected washing machine in a customer’s home could automatically send out an error report to the manufacturer when it experiences a failure. This is where field service management comes in.

The Role of Additive Manufacturing in Production of the Future Additive manufacturing (AM) is the process of adding layers of material — most commonly plastics or resins, and increasingly metals — to produce products according to precise digital plans. With AM, products are produced using only the material necessary, therefore minimizing scrap. Modern digital technology is transforming every industry, including manufacturing. Yet in The Rise of Smart Operations, a survey of machinery manufacturers conducted by UPS and IDC, roughly one-half of the respondents said their digital or “smart” operations were lagging the competition or were at a significant disadvantage. Manufacturers will also find practical solutions they can consider implementing today to incorporate smarter operations in their production processes of the future.

System reliability is a vital component in Storage Area Network (SAN) design that keeps your production environment operating and avoids data loss and downtime. But since SANs are built using both mechanical and electronic parts, component failures due to usage, environmental factors, or manufacturing defects are not uncommon. Even in completely redundant systems, controllers can fail, fans can stop operating, power supplies can burn out, and disk drives can degrade or fail.
