Une étude réalisée par OLIVER WYMAN GROUP :
Many machinery and industrial equipment manufacturers have been growing and building up their cash reserves. Now they need to develop the right strategies to stay ahead of the competition in the game of growth and consolidation.
With this in mind, it is my pleasure to share with you our 2014 edition of Perspectives on Manufacturing Industries. This collection of articles reflects our latest thinking on courses of action that industrial companies need to take in order to seize new opportunities. Our cover story describes how companies can position themselves for success given the findings of Oliver Wyman’s most recent mergers & acquisitions study.
In addition, we examine how manufacturing companies can apply the principles of globalization across their entire value chains, from purchasing through operations to sales. Furthermore, we spoke to Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Ungeheuer, president of the VDI, the Association of German Engineers, about what we call « Industry 4.0 ». In the interview we explore how increasing interconnectedness is becoming a critical factor for companies’ growth in the future.
