Welcome to Manufacturing Global’s February 2018 edition.

This month, we speak to Claire Vyvyan, Senior Vice President for Dell UK & Ireland, regarding the technology giant’s research into digital transformation and how its diverse range of services can benefit the manufacturing industry. “In the last 15 years we’ve had the internet, the iPhone and the emergence of the likes of Airbnb. Now we’re trying to envisage what will happen in the next 15 years, beyond 2030,” she explains.

We also grab some time with Lean Enterprise Leader Marcia Brey from GE Appliances who explains how an improved ownership experience boosts the bottom line.

Elsewhere, Greg Carter, CEO of Growth Street, discusses the difficulties many SMEs face when accessing working capital, and the importance of placing people at the heart of your business, whilst our operational excellence slot advises business leaders on how to prevent their supply chains from entering a death spiral.

As if all that wasn’t enough, we also rank the top 10 chemical manufacturers in the world and highlight the biggest manufacturing events of 2018.

Enjoy the issue!
