The CPG industry is challenged today by extremely volatile global economic conditions and a highly competitive marketplace. Manufacturers are faced with fluctuating demand and shifting brand preferences from various geographies, demographics and market segments. When combined, these challenges contribute to smaller lot sizes and shorter delivery times at a more competitive price.
In response to these conditions, manufacturers must react quicker and operate in a more agile manner, while sustaining or improving customer satisfaction at the lowest cost of manufacturing possible. Efficient operation is crucial to minimize waste, remove bottlenecks and improve asset utilization. Costs must be reduced in response to price pressures on product margins.
Unfortunately, typical manufacturing processes are managed through spreadsheets, manual plant floor paperwork for production and quality, disparate execution solutions, and manual report generation, which are often hours behind production. This delay in receiving and reviewing production information deters manufacturers from discovering inconsistencies and root causes in a timely manner. Consequently, responses to ever-changing manufacturing conditions are slowed and continuous improvement efforts are limited only to historical perspective.
Rockwell Software recognizes these challenges and offers a comprehensive Industry solution focused on delivering best practice execution, predictive control for your vital processes, and Operations intelligence for proactive decision-making that drives optimal manufacturing and economical performance.
