Seminar 1, 09.00- 11.00, Andersalen, 11D 121, Karlstad University
The Digitalisation of Manufacturing: Implications for Strategy, Operations and Services
In the late 1960’s Wickham Skinner wrote his now classic article “Manufacturing – The Missing Link in Corporate Strategy”. In this seminar Andy Neely will ask how Wickham Skinner’s article would have changed if it were written today. It is clear that the style and nature of manufacturing is changing – servitization and digitalization are both having a profound impact on the way we conceptualise manufacturing. Using the manufacturing strategy framework, Andy will explore how the classic strategic decisions facing manufacturing firms have changed over the years.
