Norwell, MA, June 25, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- To-Increase, a provider of Microsoft Dynamics solutions for Industrial Equipment Manufacturers (IEM), shares insights into the future of manufacturing and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). These insights spell out what manufacturers should focus on to stay competitive in the marketplace.
The manufacturing industry doesn’t stand still. Focusing on the future and striving to evolve is what keeps top manufacturers ahead of the competition. Going on this, a recent study from Frost and Sullivan, finds spending in this area is set to increase to over 400 million, by 2017.
“With such a projected increase, along with industrial and manufacturing industries being major consumers of product lifecycle management and enterprise resource planning, if you’re not investing in this technology now, in the future you’ll wish you had," writes Luciano Cunha, Global Industry Director, To-Increase.
Cunha goes on to point out reasons points that could hamper wide-spread adoption of product lifecycle management, including:
• Increased cost
• Increase in quality control
