Responding to Customer Needs
Manufacturing and technology are converging like never before.

The Internet of Things-enabled factories of the future are here, and they’re collecting big gains in profit, effectiveness and on-time delivery rates.

This white paper addresses how the benefits of demand-driven synchronization and visibility provide both customer and competitive value. Learn how demand-driven change can:

  • Help you gain a competitive advantage - and greater customer satisfaction
  • Better equip you to meet changing market demands
  • Synchronize your systems and your people to solve common manufacturing challenges
  • Apply to diverse manufacturing environments - MTS, ATO and MTO
  • Help you achieve critical business goals


Benjamin Disraeli said, “Change is inevitable”. As we in the manufacturing business know, there are always factors beyond our control.

Change is the one thing we can plan for: The marketplace will change. Customers’ needs change.

Demand-driven and synchronized factories are able to manage change in the form of managing variability via increased visibility. They standardize processes to be more consistent, more quality-focused, less prone to error and waste and to attain visual control.

Becoming this kind of enterprise means you respond better to market forces, environmental forces, customers’ changing and growing needs and deliver more choices and options for customers - and your business.

This paper also covers benefits to address in your business case for demand-driven change - and more.
