Manufacturing Challenges

Today manufacturers struggle with complex issues in the production environment. They contend with a skilled labor shortage and knowledge loss due to an aging workforce, high industry competition, and a lack of accurate shop floor data. The lack of visibility makes it difficult to react in real time to constantly changing bottlenecks. Post mortem analysis at the end of the shift is no longer enough. Beyond these roadblocks, factory managers are also dealing with rising quality demands, an inability to quickly respond to volatile market conditions, and more.
