The current focus in discrete manufacturing is to create experience ecosystems that transform the focus from designing, selling, and servicing complex products to one in which the product becomes the platform through which new digital products and services are delivered. Nevertheless, the importance of the factory stays crucial. Discrete manufacturing companies must develop the necessary production capabilities to compete in a digital economy.
"The factory is crucial in this sector," said Lorenzo Veronesi, associate research director, IDC Manufacturing Insights. "Therefore, it is essential that factory leaders evaluate their future manufacturing execution systems, leveraging expert information to make the best decisions."
