Manufacturing 2023: Driving Resiliency in the Face of Economic Hardship

Experts are calling manufacturing's 2023 landscape a triple squeeze on performance: Looming economic hardship pressing their bottom line, a competitive market for skilled workers, and unexpected disruptions to supply chains. In this world, production efficiency is not the main goal for manufacturers — it’s resiliency. The need to pivot and adapt to changes in demand along with ongoing, unpredictable disruptions has never been greater. This is why we’re forecasting 2023 to be the tipping point for digital manufacturing.

With the triple squeeze on the top of every company's mind, they’re looking to build an agile, connected, and composable technology architecture that will help them increase productivity, boost ROI, and stay resilient in the face of the unknown.

Last year, we asked if MES was still relevant. During this webinar, industry veterans, Patrick Harrigan, Head of Global Partnerships and Strategic Alliances at Tulip and Darpan Parikh, Global Solution Leader — Manufacturing Operations at AWS, will take a closer look at the state of manufacturing and MES — and how the solutions are holding up in the face of new challenges.

They will discuss:

  • Understanding the newly emerged triple squeeze on performance and the implications on manufacturing
  • For those who attended last year's popular webinar, "Is MES Still Relevant in 2022," we'll look at how predictions from last year played out and what that means for 2023
  • 2023 predictions: the core fundamental changes in manufacturing that are here to stay
  • How to navigate the triple squeeze with the right approach and digital tools
