Since the recession first began in 2008, the manufacturing sector has been hailed as Europe’s main hope in boosting its economy. Initially, a change of strategy was adopted that saw much of Europe’s manufacturing practices being outsourced or moved overseas. However shifts in the costs of offshoring are forcing Europe to focus its investments more locally, in closer proximity to its consumer market. The industry is under enormous pressure to reduce operational costs and timelines whilst remaining productive, efficient and competitive. The key challenge facing manufacturing today is evaluating operational priorities and deciding where processes can be streamlined to save on cost and time without any risk to product quality.
The 9th Annual European Manufacturing Strategies Summit is packed full of real life manufacturing case studies from companies including Coca Cola, Caterpillar, Mercedes, Pfizer, Airbus and many more. These allow you to benchmark your business against the ‘best in class’ and ensure that you have the tools you need to form a coherent and logical strategy.
