The sweeping changes in the industry have implications for every business element of the manufacturing sector — business-to-business (B2B) organizations are moving to a business-to-business-to-consumer (B2B2C) paradigm, organizations are moving from capex to opex due to cost pressures, lean manufacturing is changing to custom mass manufacturing, and globally agile product development is fast becoming the new differentiator. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have realized that the current models of business are not enough to create a competitive edge. Next-gen technology is the centerpiece of this revolution. Manufacturers who will achieve success in the future will embrace technology-led innovation and embark on this transformation as a means to survive and grow in a sustainable manner.
