Manufacturing finds itself in the eye of the storm that is called ‘industry 4.0’: big data, autonomous robots, the Internet of Things, simulations, cloud technologies, and so on. Exploiting these technologies to become an agile and sustainable manufacturer is easier said than done.
How can you keep up with the ever-increasing pace of technology that transforms the look, systems, processes and organization of your production-oriented company?
Where do you start when you want to approach new market & product portfolios? How do you tap into new customer channels?
How do you respond to the surging number of consumers who base their buying decisions on whether a product was sourced and manufactured in a fair and responsible manner?

Having your processes run like clockwork is one thing. Targeting new customer markets and channels is another. What are the changing needs of your customers?

Apart from lowering operational costs by reducing resource consumption, the sustainability challenge requires a shift in mindset to see it as a profitable venture rather than a cost-driver or CSR initiative. It also offers potential to increase customer and shareholder loyalty and brand perception.
