The buzz: “The potential value unlocked by AI in helping design out waste in a circular economy for food is up to $127 billion a year in 2030…for consumer electronics is up to $90B a year in 2030.” mckinsey.com

As industrial manufacturers begin or continue to embrace innovative technologies, important challenges emerge. What role does a commitment to sustainability play in their business decisions, especially in the current business climate? If they decide to contribute to the circular economy, how can they do it meaningfully? And how do they ensure they are using Artificial Intelligence applications ethically?

Our panel will discuss these questions from multiple perspectives to discover the business case for embracing and embedding sustainable and ethical practices into the manufacturing process.

We’ll ask Lian Jye Su at ABI Research, and Georg Kube and Elvira Wallis at SAP for their take on Manufacturing of the Future: The Central Role of Sustainability, AI and Ethics.

The buzz: “A new future is being written for the automotive industry. Companies which have spent decades perfecting the production of vehicles are now reinventing themselves as mobility services providers in favor of environmental sustainability. Old paradigms are not valid anymore, disruptions enforce the change: new technologies, sustainability needs, environmental regulations.” (capgemini.com) Yes, being an automotive supplier has never been more challenging. COVID-19 has disrupted business in a fundamental way – but it’s also accelerating long-running trends. Pressured by catastrophes, market forces and technological disruption, suppliers must navigate a minefield of issues. What major forces will shape the sector for the next five years? How can suppliers overcome present crises while being agile enough to seize the future? We’ll ask Michael Hessler at Capgemini and Rich Lindow at SAP what lies ahead in the next half-decade for automotive suppliers positioned for success.

Rank #3: Servitization: Driving Growth for Industrial Manufacturers

Podcast cover
Read more
“In 2018, manufacturers began the shift toward servitisation…from selling products to selling the outcome or value that products deliver and guaranteeing product uptime…The transformation process doesn’t happen overnight. However, the benefits of servitisation are incredibly attractive.” (supplychaindigital.com) Yes, industrial manufacturers were shifting towards new business models before the coronavirus global pandemic. But now it’s even more important to ensure the relationship with their customers does not end at the time of delivery. New business models that position industrial manufacturers as service providers are ensuring ongoing revenue streams, as well as a deeper and more profitable customer interaction. These models include active monitoring, predictive services and even pay-by-outcome services. Today, in this COVID-19 recovery time, we’ll ask Michael Larner at ABI Research and Ankit Sharma at SAP how manufacturers can embrace servitization as a key pillar of growth.

Rank #4: Customer-Centric Manufacturing: Making It A Reality

Podcast cover
Read more
The buzz: “A shift toward customer-centricity seems like a no-brainer. Where the vast majority of manufacturers struggle is understanding what a customer-centric strategy means. To simplify the primary objective of moving to a customer-centric based strategy, manufactures should develop products, content, how-to videos, packaging and systems… for the end-user of the products and ultimately create a direct relationship with them” (dorngroup.com). Manufacturers increasingly need to focus on the end user and their experiences if they are to grow their business. Caring about the needs of customers has become even more important in the age of COVID-19. As the recovery begins, manufacturers need to discover customer intention and predict demand accurately. How to meet this daunting challenge? Form strategic partnerships to make this mission a reality. We’ll ask Ryan Martin at ABI Research and Gustavo Millan at SAP for their nsights on Making Customer-Centric Manufacturing A Reality.

The buzz: “New technologies and business models are unlocking what could be a trillion-dollar market…innovations in mobility are being matched and amplified by innovations in vehicle automation, sharing, and electrification” (Daniel Sperling, Three Revolutions).

The buzz: A study by PWC and the Manufacturing Institute found that in 2016, women comprised 47% of the total US labor force, yet only 29% of the manufacturing sector. MAPI reported that the manufacturing sector employs fewer women and black workers now than 20 years ago.
Despite stunning progress in factory-floor automation, men make up 71% of the manufacturing workforce, while their labor force participation rate is 53%. What steps must these companies take to entice the best and the brightest to work in Industry 4.0-enabled factories while diversifying their workforce? The experts speak.
