Next Generation Manufacturing Study Shows Gap
The latest Next Generation Manufacturing Study Summary was released in conjunction with Manufacturing Day 2013. This year's study identifies an enormous execution gap - the difference between the number of firms that recognize the importance of a particular NGM strategy, and the number come close to or achieved world-class status in that strategy. For example, while 90% of manufacturers believe process improvement is important or highly important, only 44% of manufacturers are near or at world-class status in process improvement.
