Description

This research service aims to measure the current use and future decision-making behavior towards information technology (IT) within the manufacturing sector. Manufacturers have been top implementers of new IT solutions and more than 50% plan to invest in these technologies in the next two years. Mobile devices and applications will be prevalent in manufacturing due to the high degree of mobility in this environment. The ability to deliver information on machine defects, workflow difficulties, and operation efficiency in a timely manner would be crucial for keeping costs down and remaining competitive in the global marketplace.
