Organizations must evaluate their businesses to understand themselves, the market they are in, and the customers they serve.
Especially true for high volume manufacturers, proper alignment is essential, otherwise they are destined for failure. Shrinking margins, limits in differentiation, excessive proliferation, endless uncertainty, the list goes on and on. Manufacturers need a strategic approach and a plan of action that will guide them through the uncertainty and minimize their time and costs in production. To compete, competitive advantages must be developed by concentrating on three areas: manufacturing competencies, strategic alignment and best practices. Before a manufacturer decides how to balance the three, they must first evaluate the current position of their business and the market and then determine which direction they are both heading.
