For several years, intensive global competition in industry has already led to a close synchronization between manufacturers and suppliers along the value added chain. It will be crucial for manufacturers to harmonize the information exchange and flow in development, production and sales. Suppliers, however, will have to determine their positions and business models accordingly.

Benefits for the typical manufacturer:

  • Supply Chain costs reduced by 1-3% (study by FMI, GMA, AIM - E Commerce and Global Standards )
  • Gain in profit of 10-15% (study by FMI, GMA, AIM - E Commerce and Global Standards)
