What’s next in manufacturing: Planning for 2024 and beyond

Experts are calling manufacturing’s 2023 landscape a triple squeeze on performance—looming economic hardship pressing their bottom line, a competitive market for skilled workers, and unexpected disruptions to supply chains. Now more than ever companies need to change course and adapt to shifts in demand and ongoing, unpredictable disruptions. 

In this landscape, production efficiency is not the only goal—so is safety, sustainability and service. Manufacturers must look to optimize their technology investments and build agile, connected, and composable technological applications that will enable them to boost productivity, increase ROI, and remain viable and scalable in the face of unpredictability.

  • What modifications have companies made to their long-term plan regarding technology investments given the economic headwinds?
  • What types of projects are remaining top-priority for investment? Have any projects been down-graded as a result of the economic shift?
  • How are companies adapting technology to challenges presented by shortages in the workforce? What tools do leaders use to show digital dividends and demonstrate the financial impact of technology investments?

Join leaders interested in discussing the manufacturing industry outlook for the rest of 2023, the most pressing challenges leaders expect to face, and solutions they’re exploring.

Job titles may include CIO, COO, COO, Director of IT, and other senior decision-makers.

  • Regional Chief Financial Officer for Whirlpool
  • Senior Director of IT Business Partner and IPS Segment for Nordson
  • Director of Digital Transformation Finance for Lam Research
  • Director of Operations for Fresenius Medical Care
