3 Objectives that Every Manufacturer Must Be Ready For in 2023

In this ever-changing year of 2023, we’re facing various challenges following the war in Europe, the coming end of the global pandemic, ongoing supply chain disruption and worker shortage. 

As in every new year, almost every manufacturer will be eyeing various smart solutions to remain competitive. In this blog post, we will share the top manufacturing objectives expected in our industry in 2023 and beyond:

Objective #1: Enhance the dataflow between office and the factory floor

According to Deloitte‘s report,

  • 1 in every 4 manufacturers admitted they can’t fully arrange their production schedule with material availability.
  • 60% of manufacturers plan to focus on data analytics to increase operational efficiencies.
  • 61% of manufacturers are looking for companies with specialized technology to integrate and extract real-time data into their business management systems.

In other words:
“How to let your machines and your ERP system talk to each other”
is one of the main topics of the year.

For small manufacturers, choosing a lightweight and integrative real-time data collection solution is now their priority.

Objective #2: Better scalability for manufacturing projects

Many manufacturers are now seeking scalable solutions not to put their businesses at risk.

In 2022, global supply chain disruptions hindered production orders and plans. And this trend seems to be continuing in 2023, as Deloitte’s recent research shows that 80% of surveyed manufacturers experienced a “heavy” to “very heavy” disruption in their supply chains over the past 12 to 18 months.

Also, since upstream manufacturers are moving out of traditional industrial countries, such as China, many mid-size suppliers are considering rescaling their businesses or reshoring to other nearby countries, which requires them to have strong scalability and flexibility – because the old ways of production and supply chain management might soon become obsolete in 2023.

Objective #3: Better connection between machines and the automated processes

What makes things worse for manufacturers is the problem of the global worker shortage.

The lack of skilled workers drives more manufacturers to automated processes and maintain efficiency with minimal manual efforts. The Deloitte Outlook mentioned that 39% of surveyed manufacturing executives would like to increase investments in Internet of Things (IoT) to connect machines and make manufacturing processes less labor-intensive.
