The Challenge and Benefit
It is critical for a company with a diverse product group like Casio to continually deliver cutting-edge products to meet demanding consumer needs. To do this, the company needs to ensure efficiency in its manufacturing operations and visibility of information across multiple departments and operations. It also has to constantly find opportunities to reduce supplier lead times so that products, especially new products, get to market faster.
