FACT: The world is built upon the foundations of science, engineering and technology
Can the world do without science, engineering and technology; the answer is probably “NO” and we
know the backbone of any country is the Manufacturing sector. South Africa has developed an
established, diversified manufacturing base that has shown its resilience and potential to compete in
the global economy. The manufacturing sector stimulates the growth of other activities, such as
services, and achieving specific outcomes, such as employment creation and economic
There is a revolution occurring worldwide in the business of manufacturing. The restructuring and
innovations that South Africa manufacturers have implemented over the past decade are a part of
that revolution. Even more changes are to come as businesses respond to the globalization of
industrial markets, production systems, supply networks, and competition.
A new paradigm is emerging. Manufacturers no longer see their activities simply in terms of
transforming raw materials into components or finished products. Today, manufacturing is a system
encompassing all the activities that are required to deliver products that meet customer needs – a
system that extends from research and development, design and engineering, to production, finance,
sales and marketing, and after-sales service.
It is a system that extends beyond any single enterprise, across supply chains and business networks
that are increasingly global in scope and that incorporate services as well as production activities.
Manufacturers around the world are facing many of the same challenges and opportunities that
South African companies are experiencing. Business strategies are changing. Manufacturers are
entering new markets and striving to meet new and changing customer needs. They are outsourcing
more components and services to suppliers around the world. Production processes are using the
latest in automated technologies.
Manufacturers are restructuring their internal operating and information systems and reengineering
production processes to eliminate waste and lower costs. And, they are changing the nature of their
organizations by partnering with other companies in complex supply chains and business networks
that now extend globally.
The business of manufacturing is being redefined by changes in the market place and how
companies react to them. Some key drivers of change are working across international markets:
●New and more demanding customers
●More demanding stakeholders
●The pace of innovation and development of new technologies
Manufacturing CEOs are now keenly focused on innovation. In fact, on the list of strategic priorities
for the next 3 years, ‘fostering innovation’ was cited most frequently as a top priority, followed closely
by ‘developing new growth strategies’. And almost half of all manufacturing respondents said they
planned to devote ‘significant’ capital towards new product development over the next 3 years
With all of this in mind and that Manufacturer needs to re-invent himself and find ways to be
