Digitalisation and effective networking are key factors enabling the manufacturing industry to make a successful shift to business outcomes and value.

Advances in manufacturing technology and the shift to partnership-based business models are realising new opportunities and creating added value for both suppliers and customers. Digitalisation and effective networking are key factors enabling the manufacturing industry to make a successful shift to so-called B4B models that focus on business outcomes and value instead of simply selling. Digitalisation allows products to act more like launching pads for future products and services.
