Agile manufacturing solutions from Fujitsu

With consumers demanding higher service levels, new product development and tighter delivery times, supply chains are growing in complexity. Increased agility in manufacturing is therefore essential to keep pace with change.

To meet customer demand for on time and on price delivery, optimisation of complex multi-channelled business networks is critical. Products need to quickly progress from order to payment, and be delivered on time with the highest level of service possible.

The global challenge facing manufacturers

Those manufacturers who operate on a global scale experience a higher level of volatility in cost, pricing and trade terms, than those who operate on a national level.

The ability to effectively manage manufacturing costs is the difference between profit and loss. The key is to reduce operational expense whilst at the same time achieve operational excellence.

Streamlining the supply chain and improving operational efficiency means cost reductions, which can then be passed onto customers in the form of cost savings. At a time when consumers are demanding shorter buying cycles and market competition is strong, competitive pricing is a vital to retain customer loyalty.

Those manufacturers who successfully manage supply chain complexity and the speed of adaptation that is required, will emerge as the winners.
