Investing in agility

Despite a continuing climate of economic uncertainty marked by inflation and rising interest rates, many manufacturing respondents indicated their intention to continue executing on planned capital investments for 2023, largely sparked by greater visibility into supply chain risks. As efficiency and productivity top their list of priorities, technology is recognized as a major factor in delivering the agility required for organizations to counter both current and future economic constraints.

Key takeaways from Alithya's 2023 Manufacturing Trends Survey include:
  • 54% of respondents look to data to improve supply chain visibility
  • 43% of respondents report their intention to increase spending on capital projects in 2023
  • 39% of respondents foresee a rise in IoT investments this year
