Adoption of Transformative Technologies in Manufacturing is Accelerating
The Manufacturing Leadership Council conducted a survey of manufacturing executives regarding their attitudes about and plans for adopting a wide range of potentially transformative technologies, including mobile devices and platforms, advanced robotics, advanced analytics, and 3D printing.
The intent of the survey was to assess the strategic and competitive impact that these technologies are having on today’s manufacturing enterprises, manufacturers’ investment plans relative to these technologies, and the competitive importance that these technologies will have over the next five years.
Some of the topics discussed in this report include:
- How rapidly are manufacturers evaluating and adopting potentially transformative technologies?
- To what extent are manufacturers adopting transformative technologies and what factors are driving the acceleration?
- Are manufacturers becoming less risk-averse in the evaluation and adoption of transformative technologies?
