Companies are investing more “upstream” to improve product creation and “downstream” to better serve their customers and raise profitability. These trends will intensify the already strong pressure to maximize manufacturing efficiency and operational performance. In the future, the same companies will consistently align products and resources with their brand positioning. They are designing their products, as well as their international manufacturing facilities and supply chains so they can produce product more efficiently, at lower cost while all the time improving quality. In addition, the proliferation of the emerging markets not only as a sourcing solution, but also as a market opportunity to sell their products requires that companies need to become more flexible relative to where and how they setup their manufacturing plants.
OEMs suppliers also will see drastic changes in their value creation structures. They will need to improve operational efficiency to achieve additional cost reductions which are necessary to remain competitive. As the OEMs restructure where they relocate manufacturing operations around the world, they will expect their strategic suppliers to follow them. These trends make it critically important that suppliers develop a sophisticated, long-term manufacturing strategy in alignment with their own OEM customers.
