6 Lessons About the Future of Manufacturing from the Winners of the ML Awards

Factories of the Future. For the past 12 years it’s been our pleasure to sponsor the Manufacturing Leadership Awards. One reason it’s a great experience is that it’s rewarding to help honor manufacturing innovators who, all too often, don’t get the recognition they deserve. Another is that, each year, the innovative projects and individual achievements selected as ML Award winners by the Judging Panel give us invaluable insights into where manufacturing is going. That’s because the awards—which are based on nominations submitted directly by manufacturers themselves—tell us exactly the types of initiatives into which these leaders are investing their precious financial and intellectual resources with the ultimate goal of gaining meaningful competitive advantage and delivering increased value to customers.
