Siemens : Defining Smart Manufacturing

Top 10 Smart Manufacturing Service Companies in Europe - 2021

For manufacturers to stay ahead of their peers in the industry and have a steady hold in the market, they need to embrace the latest technological advancements and state-of-the-art products offered by the best manufacturing solution providers. By doing so, manufacturers can reap a host of benefits such as increased visibility into operations, substantial cost savings, growing speeds in production times and the means to provide quality customer support. Spanning Industry 4.0, manufacturing technology solution providers are leveraging a combination of leading-edge technologies like big data, predictive maintenance, AR, VR and IoT, and digitalized equipment to roll out products for hassle-free production of goods and reducing the time to market.

However, it is evident that technology will not grow an industry; instead, its proper usage will. As a result, manufacturers are leveraging smart manufacturing techniques powered by machine learning and analytics to improve productivity and efficiency. They are also establishing long-term and short-term goals for business growth, setting margins to measure that growth, and then determining what type of machines and technology they need to achieve those goals. Among those technologies, one of the most significant impacts on manufacturing has been the fourth industrial revolution, commonly known as Industry 4.0. As one of the most revolutionizing era, Industry 4.0 is dramatically impacting the manufacturing industry and shifting the focus from B2B to B2C.

In this edition, we are glad to feature companies that deliver better flexibility and efficiency to clients’ daily operations. We present to you Manufacturing Outlook’s “Top 10 Smart Manufacturing Service Companies in – Europe 2021.”
