Where is China's Manufacturing Industry Heading?
The First China Supply Chain Management & Development Summit Forum 2006 to be Held on May 24th in Shanghai
BEIJING, April 5 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Analysys International announces that with Lenovo's layoff program, BenQ Guru's joining hands with IBM, and the mingling with other activities of manufacturers and solution providers, there is clear evidence to show that the global EMS (Electronic Manufacturing Services) industry has entered a time of rather thin margins.
In 2006, controlling overall costs, improving the response time of the supply chain and realizing global supply chain operations have become the 3 key issues challenging China's electronics manufacturers. Supply chain management has become a disadvantage, which needs urgent improvement to China's EMS industry.
Analysys International, the leading Internet-based business information service provider in China's TMT (technology, media and telecom) industry, will hold the "The First China Supply Chain Management & Development Summit Forum 2006" on May 24th and May 25th in Shanghai.
The theme of the forum is "supply chain management improves competency in the manufacturing industry," which is aiming to address supply chain performance improvement, reducing overall supply chain costs, improving supply chain flexibility and building global supply chain systems. More than 200 professionals from this community, the logistics industry and the IT industry will gather in Shanghai, together with experienced analysts from Analysys International, to discuss the foremost advanced technologies and business models, and share the latest research fruits of Analysys International in supply chain management over the last 6 years.
During the past 6 years, Analysys International has been conducting consistent and in-depth research and analysis on manufacturing, including inventory control, stock management, purchase management, sale and distribution, production operation, informatiization, organization restructuring and process performance.
Analysys International says manufacturing units account for 20.1% of total units in all industries in China, occupying an important position in China's national industrial structure. However, this industry is not performing very well. Problems such as the increase of cost, profit margin dropdown, excess productivity, information blocking, vicious competition are still persistently obsessing the industry.
Analysys International says those problems stem not only from the internal but also from market changes and supply chain operation, which shows China's manufacturing industry is on the eve of a transformation. The supply chain performance will determine the transformation.
The First China Supply Chain Management and Development Summit Forum 2006 is not only a forum for supply chain management experts, but also a grand event for exchanging knowledge on supply chain management.
