Technological advancements have an impact on every industry — especially manufacturing. In fact, according to the report “Exponential technologies in manufacturing” by Deloitte and Singularity University, 86 percent of the top 100 companies by R&D spend are in the manufacturing sector. The main technology investment areas for these companies include cloud computing, advanced analytics, modeling and simulation, optimization and predictive analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) platforms.
If you want to remain competitive, it’s critical to leverage technological advancements to your advantage — regardless of the size of your company.
