1. Focus on the challenges AND opportunities your business can overcome and achieve. Specifically look at several different technology solutions that cater to the manufacturing industry and how those are helping companies like yours.
  2. Plan – select people within your organization to research and collaborate on these different solutions
  3. Ask your customers! Find out what their plans are for future products, how they stack up to their competition, what can you do to make them stand out and stay ahead?
  4. Ask your fellow manufacturers! – talk with others in your industry you trust.
  5. With new technology comes the need for new talent or expertise  – your people may need training. Make sure the solution that can help grow new opportunities is also easily adoptable and have training available (digital training options are available).

You want to be able to “grow” with the technology you choose just as you want to grow with your customers as they roll out new products, build up their own customer base and increase demand.
