Objective

The convergence of global Mega Forces provides a framework to evaluate emerging manufacturing Mega Trends. Based on Frost & Sullivan’s Vision of the Future of Manufacturing and Production 2.0 (Visi-MAP 2.0) research, recognizing these Mega Trends allows manufacturers to innovate, design, and drive next-generation manufacturing best practices.
Leveraging this cutting-edge research, the Top 50 Game Changers Impacting Manufacturing and Production Sector 2013 analysis identifies companies that are driving next-generation manufacturing best practices. The factors that were objective inputs to the evaluation process include:
• High impact on US manufacturing competitiveness
• Current and future market growth potential
• Growth vision
• Ability to deliver toward critical future state requirements
This white paper is part of the top x game changers in manufacturing and production research and focuses on the top x game changers in manufacturing software. Frost & Sullivan’s vision is to help contribute catalytically to the visionary innovation process rather than presenting just a ringside view of industry developments. As part of this process, Frost & Sullivan has identified the companies seen as catalyzing the critical future state requirements of manufacturing and production.

Scope and Definitions

The Visi-MAP 2.0 research platform, which provides a unique vantage point for observing best practices across the manufacturing ecosystem, has brought forward Frost & Sullivan’s top 50 game changers. This initiative is built on 600 interviews and discussions with thought leaders from around the world. The participants were diverse and included:
• Executives from major global end-user verticals (automotive, aerospace and defense, chemicals, consumer packaged goods (CPG), food and beverages, mining, oil and gas, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, power, pulp and paper, and water/wastewater).
• Executives across a variety of management levels, with a bias toward C- and VP-levels.
• Executives from across the manufacturing value chain, including manufacturers, distributors, system integrators, supply chain partners, and solution providers.
These discussions coalesced around the broad themes of future vision (technology, industry future, challenge themes, and approaches), factory of the future, and convergence issues that would be most influential in changing the manufacturing and process landscape. This intelligence has been distilled into a framework of manufacturing Mega Trends that will help process and discrete manufacturers understand current and future challenges.
In the process of this research, Frost & Sullivan identified key companies accelerating the journey toward the vision of the future. To bring objectivity and rigor to the synthesis of the top 50 game changers, a Decision Support Matrix (DSM) model was deployed. The DSM compares companies’ performance relative to each other by integrating quantitative and qualitative metrics, including impact on productivity and effects on competitiveness. The DSM allowed the research team to objectively analyze each company’s performance on key criteria relative to its top competitors. The analysis does not imply any endorsement or strategic advisory, and Frost & Sullivan is absolved of any legal claims whatsoever.
For this white paper, Frost & Sullivan scrutinized more than 100 companies, products, technologies, solutions, and services in the manufacturing software category with a focus on which of them would have the greatest impact on US manufacturing competitiveness, productivity, and future growth. The objective is to demystify the best practices of companies in the field and use Frost & Sullivan’s reach to promote their adoption.
