Melt The Snowflakes: Standardize Data Flows Across Manufacturing Sites To Meet Future Customer Expectations
Why Read This Report
Manufacturers are keen to push standardization efforts across their businesses, melting the individual snowflakes of localized procurement to improve visibility from the center, manage costs, and increase control. Taken to its logical conclusion, this would see all local differences swept aside, replaced by enterprise-wide systems and monolithic procurement processes. This report guides tech and business leaders to look past the apparent neatness and efficiency of such an approach to find the real value that appropriate levels of local autonomy can deliver.
