IDC PlanScape: Digital Transformation for Smart Manufacturing

This IDC PlanScape presents a digital transformation (DX) framework that enables manufacturing organizations to develop or improve their own road map for smart manufacturing. Smart manufacturing use cases represent a subset of use cases IDC Manufacturing Insights identified as key to digital transformation across all manufacturing segments (asset-oriented value chain [AOVC], brand-oriented value chain [BOVC], engineering-oriented value chain [EOVC], and technology-oriented value chain [TOVC])."Smart manufacturing is a concept that has been growing in adoption across manufacturing for years. However, as technology evolves, these initiatives need to evolve as well. Manufacturers should build or augment their smart manufacturing road map by using the use cases in this document as a template. While organizations can vary across many dimensions, such as industry segment, geographic location, or long-term goals, the ability to respond quickly to change while maximizing efficiency is an important endeavor for all manufacturing DX programs," states Reid Paquin, research director, IDC Manufacturing Insights.
