So, obviously more and more companies are trying to reduce the amount of waste and pollution created as byproducts of manufacturing process because of new ecology laws and social responsibility.
This process usually requires facilities optimization and production processes to reduce their carbon emissions and overall energy consumption, which might include investing in alternative energy sources, such as wind and solar.
Companies are implementing circular manufacturing, granular track, and trace programs. But still these sustainability changes in manufacturing greatly depend on the ability to make data-driven decisions.
And with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management, you can create a coordinated, agile, and demand-driven digital supply chain. As a result, you can achieve real-time, end-to-end visibility across your supply chain, decreasing the amount of waste and carbon pollution during production and transportation processes.
Building closer relationships with customers pays dividends
In the past, manufacturers were often separated from the ultimate buyers of their products by multiple layers of wholesale and retail. Today, manufacturers are trying to understand the desires of their end customers. To succeed at this kind of business transformation, companies need flexible systems that can adapt to changing business requirements.
By effectively applying insights into the customer journey, manufacturers can boost services revenue by 10% or more.
Moreover, manufacturers recognize that selling directly to consumers gives them greater access to customer data, giving them insights to improve products and develop new business lines.
With predictive insights from AI and IoT implemented in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management, you can break through barriers and drive outcomes by moving from reactive to proactive operations.
Smart factories increase agility and efficiency
Through the broad adoption of smart sensor technology, cloud computing advancements and IoT businesses started realizing the potential of a fully connected business with all company information aggregated into a central database that operates data in real time accordingly to company`s needs.
A connected factory will allow you proactively manage shop floors using a real-time view of production and stock to improve throughput, quality, and uptime.
