The Changing Pace of Manufacturing

Manufacturers abandon outsourcing to drive down costs, shifting focus to internal operations and supply chains


In order to achieve these performance improvements, companies are focusing on supply chain strategy and plan to increase investment in their supply chains by nearly three percent in 2013. Interestingly, the research showed that only 20 percent of the total investment will go toward upgrading or building new capacity (down by half from 2012). Instead, key 2013 investment priorities will include IT, skills and training to improve processes, and supply partners to develop joint capabilities and products.
