The manufacturing industry is faced with the most disruptive digital transformation revolution. The changing consumer preferences and market dynamics are driving the shift from mass production to mass personalization through connected experiences, automation, and smart manufacturing. Digital disruption is rapidly altering industry dynamics and challenging traditional manufacturing enterprises to stay relevant in a networked ecosystem.
The success of manufacturing enterprises will be determined by their ability to expand into new growth areas (profit pools) by leveraging existing business synergies (sustained manufacturing agility) and creating newer, personalized, and connected experiences. Manufacturing enterprises must create agile and smart digital ecosystems to swiftly respond to evolving business complexities. These digital ecosystems will be anchored through intelligent integration of cyber-physical systems by leveraging technologies like Digital Twins, intelligent sensors, cobots, AI/ML, AR/VR, 3D Printing, 5G and backed by robust intelligent applications/platforms.
