Formidable business challenges - from the continuing tough economic climate, to rising market complexity and intensified global competition - are now driving the global manufacturing industry toward a phase of profound rethinking about the focus of their future factories. In fact, more than 43% of survey respondents declared they have a formal process in place to design future production plants. IDC Manufacturing Insights has developed a three-layer maturity model that identifies the journey manufacturers will have to undertake toward the factory of the future. The new report provides a simple, intuitive, yet powerful framework for manufacturers to assess their position along that maturity model and evaluate the best strategy to support their journey toward the factory of the future.
We invite you to join us for this complimentary IDC Manufacturing Insights web conference, during which, Pierfrancesco Manenti, Head of Europe, Middle East & Africa,  will discuss:
  • Major business concerns driving the factory of the future strategy
  • Critical trends in manufacturing operations management and the emergence of the global plant floor approach
  • The role plant-floor employees will have in supporting the factory of the future
  • The role of IT in enabling and supporting the factory of the future
