The manufacturing industry is transitioning from mass production to on-demand, customised products for conscientious consumers.

However, inefficiencies in processes, skills shortages, and disruptions in global supply chains affect manufacturers' ability to maintain profitability while driving social impact and adhering to environmental, health, and safety regulations.

This makes forecasting demand, analysing consumer behaviour, and managing inventory difficult.

Manufacturers are now rethinking how they design and manufacture their products with as little waste as possible, how they ship them, and, most importantly, how they approach the rapidly growing after-market repair and recycling market.

The technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, such as robotics, digital twins, drones, and automation, present an opportunity for manufacturers to create an end-to-end digitally connected industrial environment that reduces costs, increases ROI, and improves plant efficiency without sacrificing product quality.
