Manufacturing Strategy Development

There is increasing pressure on manufacturers to improve performance and find new ways of competing to win new business. Many small and medium sized manufacturing companies are struggling to develop and deploy an effective manufacturing strategy, preventing them from realising their full potential.

Formulating and managing a manufacturing strategy demands input and collaboration at the highest levels of management. The issues are often complex, and typically, there will be several alternative strategic business paths to choose from.

Executing a manufacturing strategy is equally as challenging, as it requires a certain steadfastness to stay on the chosen course over a number of years, despite distractions of the daily business and economic cycles. Strategy execution requires coordinating and prioritising activities across several different functional areas and a systematic long term monitoring and readjusting against the agreed objectives.

Strategic decisions are by definition far-reaching: you must ensure that they are informed, appropriate and robust. Consulting external expertise and advice will help you make important judgement calls and avoid missed opportunities and costly re-alignment.
