As the manufacturing industry evolves, processes within it become exponentially more complex. To keep up, manufacturers have no choice but to shift their mindset to one that enables transparent and responsive operations.

Of course, there’s more to it than that. Specifically, what are the key initiatives operations leaders should be focusing on? What does the “factory of the future” look like, and which technologies can help manufacturers get there?
There’s a reason 63% of manufacturers are planning to rely on digital/smart manufacturing in the next 12-36 months. To learn if you should be one of them, download IDC’s Technology Spotlight today.
