The Team – Manufacturing Strategy & Operations (MS&O)

  • Defining the strategic direction and priorities for the manufacturing function, in light of both global business conditions and Enterprise strategy
  • Redesigning manufacturing network footprint to meet strategic priorities at an optimal balance of service level and cost
  • Implementing leading-edge smart factory solutions (including robotics, sensors, additive manufacturing, etc.)
  • Assessing and implementing digital supply chain strategies including robotic process automation, big data, predictive analytics, etc.)
  • Designing operating and governance models for direct and indirect manufacturing support
  • Transforming the value equation for direct materials by optimizing product portfolio, improving sourcing and supplier development
  • Collaborating with the extended supply chain to achieve performance targets
  • Applying Lean principles to achieve operational excellence in the factory and the supply chain
