Key Challenges in Metal Precision and Fabrication Manufacturing Industry:
The Metal Precision and Fabrication Manufacturing Industry has faced many challenges over the past years, forcing manufacturers to revolutionize how they do things from their back-office systems to the machineries on the shop floor. The economic downturn obliged the industry to move towards small-scale providers. These fabricators suddenly has to reduce expenses without sacrificing quality and focus on waste reduction and optimizing production efficiency.
These industry dynamics mixed up to establish a situation in which the inefficiencies and industrial limitations of past years cannot be accepted anymore. To enable the fabricators to survive competition, different approaches to work faster and at lower costs with high quality results is a must. This can easily be achieved by having the Cantier Manufacturing Suite in place.
Other challenges of the industry are as follows:
- Market demand is inherently variable, requiring increased flexibility in manufacturing
- Globalization pressure on costs where standardization and innovative operation is needed
- Excellent customer service as differentiation
