A Roadmap for Global Manufacturing Excellence

Manufacturing has gone global. Production facilities and supply chain networks are distributed across the world to best meet the needs of a highly diverse, dynamic group of customers. Leading firms are racing to standardize and harmonize their processes and systems on a global scale in an effort to ensure the right products are delivered on time, on quality, and on volume. The first step to accomplish this goal is selecting the right business partners with a track record of successful global deployments. The next step is to actually implement a system capable of delivering visibility, control, and synchronization of your business processes to attain operational collaboration for manufacturing excellence on a global scale.

Applications and solution experiences on the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE® platform and from the Dassault Systèmes DELMIA® brand and others provide applications and capabilities to integrate processes for manufacturing and the supply chain. You can improve management and efficiency for overall operations and provide visibility for all stakeholders throughout the product development process for better decision-making and execution.

Global manufacturing excellence

The goal of this white paper is to educate IT and Line-of-Business executives on what approach is now possible—validated by two case studies—when utilizing an IT platform-based approach to deploy a global solution for Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM), driving a roadmap for global manufacturing excellence. This approach can deliver a globally harmonized plant network that can yield operational and agility benefits and competitive advantage across your organization. And, with the necessary agility to easily support global continuous process improvement, the benefits of your implemented solution will continue to increase over time. This white paper starts with a discussion of the high-level market drivers impacting global manufacturers. These market trends are examined through the lens of a next-generation solution, highlighting three competitive differentiators necessary for success.

The white paper concludes with a roadmap for global manufacturing excellence to help manage the necessary changes across your internal business processes and technology architecture to make this vision a reality.
