Webcast: Turn manufacturing risks around with better business insight

You and your counterparts need to track, analyze and make decisions against a multitude of business factors. Wouldn't it be ideal to understand your customer demand signals, commodity prices, supplier viability, inventory turnover, transport costs and operational performance in real time?


Manufacturing is a complex business. Without the tools to improve real-time visibility across virtually every business function, it can be a risky one. You and your counterparts - in Production, Supply Chain, Purchasing and Service and Support - need to track, analyze and make decisions against a multitude of business factors. Wouldn't it be ideal to understand your customer demand signals, commodity prices, supplier viability, inventory turnover, transport costs and operational performance in real time?

Join Sidney Hill as he welcomes Todd Graham, Applications Development Manager at US Synthetic Corporation (part of Dover Corporation). Mr. Graham shares experiences how business analysis software made a measurable impact for his enterprise. US Synthetic needed valid, accessible and useful information at all levels within the organization as well as flexibility for reporting demands and ad hoc analysis. Leveraging the product QlikView, they empowered their teams with the tools and data to make decisions.

The Webcast illustrates how innovative business analysis solutions can:

-Improve customer-centric business agility for "demand-pull" or "to-order" manufacturing
-Identify and mitigate inventory and purchasing exposures across the supply chain
-Optimize production cycle times and yield through increased line utilization and improved quality
-Improve the after-sale customer service experience to drive customer success
Craig Fairfield, Vice President of Market Development from QlikTech, also joins to offer insight, and highlights how diversified industrial manufacturers like Amcor, Eaton and Sandvik achieved measurable business value in only weeks by putting QlikView to work. Get insight from a recently released IDC report which summarizes the findings from customers on the value of QlikView - manufacturing customers cited a 12% increase in revenue, 17% decrease in operating costs, and 33% increase in employee productivity.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
