What Will the New Year Hold for Manufacturers?

by | EPIC Systems, Inc

If you had a crystal ball and could see into the future would you be shocked, invigorated, astonished about next year? What is the fate of manufacturing? The ending of a year is an apt time to reflect on the successes and shortcomings of the previous year. It is also a time to look ahead. This industry is challenging, yes, but it is particularly exciting when technological advances shed light on the future.

Craig Giffi, vice chairman and U.S. leader for consumer and industrial products at DeLoitte shared his views in an article for Sustainable Plant. “Digitization has enabled companies to replicate advanced technology and capabilities and facilities anywhere,” Giffi says. “Increasing access to and application of advanced technology enables near identical production capabilities in any location that has skilled talent, supporting infrastructure and favorable policy.”

We are subject to economic trends and a growing global manufacturing sector. The author invites us to be encouraged. He believes that: “The fate of U.S. manufacturing largely lies where it’s always been, in the hands of the folks who want to do it and can do it well, and that is you.”
