White Paper

The digital supply network meets the future of work

 

The increasing power and capability of machines in the digital supply network
(DSN) may portend a change in what organizations ask of their workers, in
terms of required skills, tasks, and roles. In the coming years, perhaps sooner
than later, almost all work will likely involve people working alongside technology
or robots they are not currently working with today.

Global Economic Prospects

 

“Cinema,” Martin Scorsese once said, “is a matter
of what’s in the frame and what’s out.” e same
could be said about economic growth, as this
January 2018 edition of Global Economic Prospects
(GEP) illustrates. On the one hand, the GEP
points out that, for the first time since the global
financial crisis, all major regions of the world are
experiencing an uptick in economic growth. e
current, broad-based growth acceleration is a
welcome trend and could be self-reinforcing.

数字化工厂2020

 

数字化让制造型企业从根本上改头换面。随着企业对各类创新技术的采
用以及对不同资质人才的聘用,新型的数字化工厂正悄然引领制造业的
转型,并推动着制造业的中心迈向高度定制化的产品和系统。领先的制
造型企业正采用一系列的先进技术实现生产乃至整条供应链的数字化。
这些技术包括大数据分析解决方案、端至端的实时规划和互联、自控系
统、数字孪生等。凭借这些技术,效率得以提升,企业能够批量生产高
度定制化的产品。然而,想要完全发挥出数字化的潜力,企业仍需要与
主要供应商和大客户实时互联。

Industry 4.0

Around the world, tradinitional manufacturing industry is the throes of a digital transofrmation that is accelerated by exponentially growing technologies. The pace of change reflects 'Moore's law' on the speed at which information technology-driven change happens. Companies and their industrial processes need to adapt to this rapid change if they are not be left behind by developments in their sector and by their competitors...

Digital Factories 2020

Digitisation is radically changing the face of manufacuring companies. Digital factories are transforming manufacturing, as companies implement innovative technology and look for employees with fundamentally different types of qualification. These new digital factories are being created in the heart of Europe to produce highly customised products and systems.

Digital Supply Chain - the hype and the risks

 

Customers of today are connected,
informed and empowered, and
continually demand more choice
of products, greater flexibility in
delivery options and faster service
from the businesses that they
deal with. These expectations,
combined with rapidly changing
business models and channels
to market, are putting previously
unseen pressure on supply chains
to be agile, flexible and adaptab

Customers of today are connected, informed and empowered, and continually demand more choice of products, greater flexibility in delivery options and faster service from the businesses that they deal with. These expectations, combined with rapidly changing business models and channels to market, are putting previously unseen pressure on supply chains to be agile, flexible and adaptable to customer demand signals.

Industry 4.0 and manufacturing ecosystems

 

MANUFACTURERS face changes on
multiple fronts. Advanced manufacturing—
in the form of additive manufacturing,
advanced materials, smart, automated
machines, and other technologies—is ushering
in a new age of physical production.2 At
the same time, increased connectivity and
ever more sophisticated data-gathering and
analytics capabilities enabled by the Internet
of Things (IoT) have led to a shift toward an
information-based economy. With the IoT,
data, in addition to physical objects, are a
source of value—and connectivity makes
it possible to build smarter supply chains,
manufacturing processes, and even end-toend
ecosystems.3

Manufacturing Our Future Cases on the Future of Manufacturing

 

This White Paper focuses on case studies and experience
by sector, drivers or countries that can help inform on
where the “future of manufacturing” is headed, and
address key questions. The case studies deal with important
drivers of change, including industrial policy 2.0, innovation,
value chains, capital and finance, big data, the circular
economy, skills, infrastructure and “servicification”. They include
energy-based economies; least developed, developing and
developed economies; and countries of the Organisation for
Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The White
Paper’s framework highlights the case studies to help address
the questions.

Supply Chain Talent of the Future

 

Fast-forward twenty years and supply chain
organizations—now overseeing the full span of activities
from sourcing to production planning to delivery and
service—find themselves with talent issues again. This
time, however, it’s not a matter of sheer numbers. It’s a
matter of shifting needs, as rapid changes in supply chain
activities, tools, and goals call for new skills in
management and leadership.
