Companies must develop and manage production networks that are lean and flexible enough to operate cost-effectively in these uncertain times. Key challenges include increasing the efficiency of shop-floor operations, improving overall equipment effectiveness, managing global networks, and aligning the objectives of manufacturing with other key functional areas. To succeed, companies must answer questions such as these:

  • Have we aligned our manufacturing capabilities with our overall business strategy?
  • Does our global production network fully optimize costs and scale?
  • Are we insourcing and outsourcing the right things?
  • Can we improve utilization and gain capacity without adding cost?
  • How can we improve demand management and production planning—and increase flexibility—in these uncertain times?
