Current industry discussions are focused on manufacturing/production’s actual role in global supply chain network. For any manufacturer to be competitive, actual manufacturing operations activities must be highly interactive in supply chain and enterprise processes for effective collaboration and competition. This is the domain of collaborative and flexible manufacturing operations management (MOM) system architectures. The course explains the business cases for using evolving methods based on MOM international standards to effectively design, implement, change and optimize manufacturing operations work processes and supporting MOM system architectures within the distributed pull supply chains. The course explains the 21st Century Market Drivers for global manufacturing and how the drivers are rapidly evolving systems and methods for real-time intelligence in the manufacturing plant and across its supply chains. MOM standards developed over 20 years are the foundation for the manufacturing application framework in the manufacturing 2.0 architecture. The business value and direction of MOM standards is explained as well as an overview of the business role of each MOM standard. Finally, the concept of adaptable manufacturing is explained in terms of how the standards based Mfg. 2.0 architecture permits configuring plant work processes to supply chain demand.

Manufacturing markets are rapidly changing, driven by global competitive trends which make production flexibility a critical path component of supply chain collaboration. This coordinated data exchange across global supply chains and internal enterprise groups is just a part of Mfg 2.0 business case.
