75% manufacturing cos in India still grappling with basic levels of technology adoption

Greyhound Research recently conducted a survey of manufacturers in India.

Key Highlights of the study were:

  • 75% of Manufacturing organisations in India are still grappling with Manufacturing 1.0 and 2.0 stages
  • 25% Manufacturing organisations in India are planning or executing components of Manufacturing 3.0
  • No Manufacturing organizations in India are planning for organisations 4.0 or 5.0

About 75 per cent of companies in India are still grappling with Manufacturing 1.0 and 2.0 stages – a basic stage where a company already has systems of production and transaction. Systems of production would imply IT systems that monitor supply-chain management and inventory management. Transaction systems include ERP.

Only 25 per cent of the companies Greyhound Research polled are either planning or executing Manufacturing 3.0 and beyond. Companies are investing in systems of engagement such as a social media engine that helps better engagement with the customer, or with vendors.

This will have many positive impacts on manufacturing from JIT (just in time delivery) to implementing e-platforms for smarter procurement of raw materials. This could also mean a system of insights or analytics.
