Helping manufacturing, people and planet to live harmoniously
Out of disruption, a new generation of manufacturers is emerging. A generation not defined by sector, region or number of years in business. But by a commitment to building sustainable manufacturing processes for a sustainable future.
This new generation of manufactures is required to adapt to the unpredictable, be flexible, foresee the future to continuously provide products and services that enhance people’s lives.
The new generation of manufacturers is driving towards
Taking social and environmental responsibility
Transition to net zero, climate change, industrial pollution, well-being, racial injustice, or inequality come to the fore of business action
Going circular to take advantage of new markets
Removing waste in the production process, reusing and recovering products and materials, regenerating natural resources and systems
Meeting changing consumer purchasing patterns
The current and future generations are demanding sustainable practices from companies they work from and buy from
Bringing manufacturing back home
Manufacturers are moving operations back to their country, as many consumers believe that locally made products are high in quality and support the country’s economy
Responding to changes in demand channel
A strong ecosystem can avoid supply chain issues caused by rising customer expectations of shorter lead times, expanded products and services, and tailored experiences
Reducing pricing and de-risking the business model
Sustainable manufacturing is becoming a cost-saving option. Sustainable approaches are becoming more financially viable and risk-resilient
Fujitsu’s 5 pillars for Sustainable Manufacturing
Fujitsu is empowering people in the manufacturing industry for many years. We combine our longstanding experience as an ICT and digital transformation partner with revolutionary technologies such as artificial intelligence and high-performance computing to connect the entire supply chain with security and traceability. We strive for harmonious coexistence of people and our planet that is becoming borderless and diverse.
We can no longer make decisions based on empirical trends using information that is cluttered or siloed and unconnected in specific departments or operations in the company. It is a challenge to understand the environment, and factors that can affect you to make appropriate decisions.
Rapid response to unanticipated business changes with data
Fujitsu provides a foundation that enables manufacturers predict business changes through data. This is achieved by consolidating scattered data across the company to visualize the processes and data, improving intrinsic capabilities and respond to changes with agility
Labor imbalance is fast becoming a reality globally. “Master craftsmanship" of skilled workers, which was passed down from one person to another, is in danger of being lost due to retiring experienced workers and the replacement of human resources.
Move to a new work style that is not bound to location
To make the best use of valuable human resources, Fujitsu uses various digital technology tools within design, manufacturing and maintenance to constantly maximize people enablement
Resilient Supply Chain
While we are experiencing a heightened level of natural disasters and pandemics, International political tensions are rising at the same time. Within such an environment, the expectation is that supply chains will react and recover quickly from any factors affecting it.
Autonomous and flexible supply chains are key to robustness
Despite these harsh realities, Fujitsu is helping make supply chains robust with digital technologies to provide timely information on disaster and legal risks and recommend remedial measures.
Value Chain Optimization
The market needs are evolving/changing rapidly. As a response, organizations need to build a flexible ecosystem across sectors / industries / countries. This ecosystem is an optimal way to guarantee quality, security and scalability of the entire value chain.
Build a flexible ecosystem across sectors / industries / countries
Fujitsu leverages technologies that securely collect, integrate, and visualize data within the value chain to speed up cross-company decision making. Using advanced AI simulation, and matching technologies, Fujitsu proposes the best solution across the entire value chain by analyzing vast amounts of data.
More than 120 countries have pledged to act towards a carbon neutral society by 2050. While it has become mandatory for manufacturers to meet various regulations / statutory requirements, these measures are expected to not only build a competitive advantage but also to work on new business opportunities. The effort now is to identify and control emissions in the entire value chain and corporate activities
Maximize the use of distributed energy resources
Fujitsu delivers solutions that help collect and utilize data across the value chain to help Implement specific ‘Carbon-Neutral’ actions and effective use of energy resources based on visualized data that leads to a circular economy by supporting rapid material development on the premise of recycling.
