Manufacturing has reached an inflection point. Demand for electronics products is exploding while at the same time we’re experiencing a labor shortage crisis. This imbalance makes it very difficult for you to fulfill your customer orders especially when the forecasts you receive for those orders are constantly changing. Solving this issue requires going beyond reactive, short-term fixes, such as creative staffing solutions, that may have worked in the past. Finding a strategic, long-term solution that fundamentally changes the processes in your factory requires an in-depth exploration of new, more modern approaches. The answer lies in automation.
