Collaboration in manufacturing is nothing new. This five-page executive briefing from Infor describes how organizations can organize five types of collaboration into a pragmatic, goal-focused approach.

Top manufacturing executives recognize the value of effective collaboration. In a recent study, The Aberdeen Group found that 43% of manufacturers surveyed expect improved collaboration to yield shorter time-to-market for new products, 29% aim for a better innovation process and 26% expect collaboration to reduce operational costs.

Infor identifies five types of collaboration:

  • Employees
  • Systems, resources and things
  • Designers and engineers
  • Vendor and customers
  • Reporting and analytics

Infor says each type of collaboration has its own tools and priorities, and the implementation of each aspect needs enough attention to deliver expected benefits before the implementation team moves on to the next goal.
