Critical Manufacturing MES for Industrial Manufacturing

Industrial manufacturers face similar challenges to both Automotive and A&D—the rapid digitization of the industry which is changing not only the way they operate, but the way their customers are operating as well. For industrial manufacturers, according to PWC, a significant portion of their sales will come from connected equipment and systems. 72% of manufacturing companies surveyed by PwC said they are dramatically increasing their level of digitization and expect to be able to be ranked as digitally advanced by 2020, compared with just 33% today. These companies are committing US$907 billion per year — about 5% of revenues — toward greater connectivity and smarter factories.

Industry 4.0 is key to drive operational excellence at all levels with the latest technologies in the IT/OT Space for Industrial Manufacturer.
