Today, we want to feature a couple of case studies from our industrial manufacturing customers. We know that industrial manufacturing supply chains typically operate relatively low-volume, non-commodity businesses, this doesn't prevent them from having demanding customers or complex supply chains. Increasing outsourcing…faster order delivery expectations…rising commodity costs: The result is a situation where profitability and customer expectations are often at odds. To thrive in today's environment, industrial manufacturers need to shift from a role of controlling all aspects of manufacturing, to one of coordinating activities, with in-depth input and interaction with customers and suppliers. We want to share how these companies have turned to Kinaxis to help them face these challenges head on and are seeing breakthroughs in operations performance as a result.
