Business Strategy: Business Drivers and Process Improvement Imperatives in the Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Supply Chain Management Market FY10 - FY11

This Manufacturing Insights presents the latest survey results from Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) or APEJ business and IT priorities survey. The finding shows APEJ manufacturers that are looking to cross-enterprise improvements to drive the next level of process improvement across the supply chain.

According to Christopher Holmes, director, IDC Manufacturing Insights International, "We are seeing the maturation of supply chains within the region. During the slowdown, the focus was on cost, cost and cost. As the mood swings to become more optimistic, the focus is still on cost, but on a collaborative approach, on how to achieve the next level of cost saving. Providing an overarching approach to process improvement, we are seeing a growing interest in lean manufacturing, and also in automation, both across the shop floor, but also across business processes with a key focus on companies gaining visibility across the supply chain."
