Electronics manufacturers face enormous challenges along the entire product life cycle. With shrinking operating margins, a complex global supply chain and sustainability weighing heavily, they are under constant pressure to create leaner operations, streamline the launch of new products and better comply with complex industry regulations.
In a recent blog post, my colleague Mike Roberts discussed the top six biggest manufacturing operations management challenges facing the electronics industry today – challenges that, while daunting, are becoming much more manageable through tools and practices such as integrating a Cloud ERP system throughout the operation to help address fast-changing regulatory requirements and improve efficiency.
I also covered these how electronics manufacturers can achieve operational excellence in a Plex Systems webinar held just last month, which you can now watch here at your convenience.
