Manufacturing


Manufacturing consists of a variety of production approaches ranging from discrete, process, mixed-mode, and engineer-to-order to make-to-order, etc. In this competitive world, manufacturers cannot rely on just the high quality of their products, on-time delivery, or innovative product design to stay ahead of the competition—they must move beyond these attributes. As manufacturing industries mature, the rules of the game change. Manufacturers are confronted with increasing globalization, more competition within specific industries, and constant changes in customers demand and expectations.
