Fast-Changing Manufacturing Mandates

To meet fast-changing customer demand, global consumer products manufacturers, brands and vertical retailers are challenged to meet ever-increasing mandates to reduce cycle times, increase product innovation and quality and deliver greater value at lower costs.

As retailers and brands chase low labor manufacturing costs around the globe, they increase their exposure to workplace safety, unfair labor and wage practices, and other social and political risks. Manufacturers must provide the visibility and reporting necessary to comply with customer requirements and growing governmental regulation.

These mandates drive companies to seek new technologies and processes that offer the significant and sustainable improvements necessary to compete in a globally competitive business environment.
