"This new research examines how manufacturers can intelligently increase production and performance with an eye towards BPM principles while also adopting new technology."
Kentwood, MI (PRWEB) January 24, 2011
The research report revealed that manufacturers today are struggling with pressures from many different sources; regulators, shareholders, customers, and suppliers all impact operations. The ability of an organization to quickly sense and adapt to these pressures can be a source of great competitive advantage.
Given the implications of many recent events surrounding new product introductions, product quality, and demand volatility, manufacturers are facing a quickly evolving marketplace. At the same time, products, the overall value chain, and the IT ecosystem have all been subject to an unprecedented growth in complexity. To help manage this complexity, organizations are re-architecting static, rigid, form fit processes to create an organization that can quickly adapt to changing market conditions. To accomplish this, the top performers are taking a Business Process Management (BPM) approach to their manufacturing operations as well as incorporating Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) into enterprise level BPM strategies.
"The results from the study revealed that by investing in BPM technologies in manufacturing, the top performers are achieving impressive gains such as 89% OEE rate, 94% on-time and complete shipments and a 5% increase in operating margin," explains Matthew Littlefield, senior research analyst, Aberdeen. "This new research examines how manufacturers can intelligently increase production and performance with an eye towards BPM principles while also adopting new technology." Readers can use this report to understand the lessons learned from the top performers while avoiding the pain points and obstacles encountered by their peers.
