Is manufacturing breaking your heart?

Consumers constantly changing their preferences.

Product life cycles getting shorter.

Markets expecting local versions of global products.

Plants and key decision makers spread all over the world.

Digitalization.

And demand to be fast, faster, fastest.

Is it any wonder that consumer packaged goods companies are struggling with manufacturing?  How do we repair that relationship?

To succeed at giving consumers what they want, when they want it, CPG companies need to master five key capabilities for global manufacturing success.

Here’s one: make it faster. Why is this important?  Because speed to market is one of the critical factors to drive sustainable growth and profits.   The trick is to successfully integrate new products while keeping up with demand.  A solution that can efficiently manage the manufacturing needs of different divisions and products, such as discrete and batch processing is invaluable. It also helps support a consistent approach to quality, from real-time manufacturing data to implementing best practices across a manufacturing network of plants which may have different constraints.
