The Value of Manufacturing Visibility: Excerpt

Information is critical to manufacturers – indicating how and when goods are being produced and to where products are moving. Timely sharing of information across a company and its supply chain enables organizations to:

  • Manage and improve their own operations;
  • Synchronize processes with suppliers; and
  • Offer better customer service.

Capturing and sharing manufacturing information requires a strategic approach that identifies what should be tracked, with whom to share information, and how to leverage this “manufacturing visibility” into improved operations and business performance.
