Companies are facing increasing global competitiveness in an industry that accounts for approximately 18% of the world’s GDP. Although manufacturing has been in decline since World War II, it has been particularly hard hit in the U.S. Because of these facts, businesses, whether healthy, underperforming or distressed, are filled with a greater sense of urgency to deliver near-term results and create sustainable growth. In order to successfully compete in today’s economy, manufacturing organizations must establish comprehensive market and growth strategies; lower overall operational costs; institute streamlined production, support and distribution processes; and carefully manage working capital to meet stakeholders’ growth and profitability expectations.
