Strategic Challenges for Manufacturing

IndustrialGlobalCompRes
Global Competition
By 2025, 1.8 billion people are expected to enter the global consuming class. Manufacturers are racing to keep up with this growing group; between 2000 and 2010 value added from manufacturing grew from $5.7 trillion to $7.5 trillion (in 2000 dollars). However, manufacturers are faced with competition in producing the goods that these people will consume. Competitive advantage through outsourcing is being reduced by growing rates of pay in developing countries, combined with a shrinking manufacturing jobs sector in developed countries. Meanwhile, the prices for all major commodities are projected to increase 30%-80% by 2025. Manufacturing leaders looking to the future will need to find new ways to gain competitive advantage through cutting costs, increasing productivity from existing assets, and adopting new technologies that will increase productivity and deliver a positive return on investment.

  • During the period from 2000 to 2008, manufacturing wages in developing countries grew 7.1 to 7.8 percent in Asia, 4.6-6.6 percent in Central and Eastern European countries, and 2-4 percent in Latin America. By comparison, wages in the U.S. have decreased 2.2 percent since 2005.
  • Today, 16 percent of global GDP comes from manufacturing
MfgWorkAgingRes
Aging Workforce
The average age of manufacturing employees is over 50 in developed countries. With age comes increased risk of musculoskeletal disorder (MSD), work-related injury, and workplace fatigue. In the United States alone, musculoskeletal disorders represent over $100 million in annual direct compensation costs to manufacturing industry employers, and indirect costs frequently amount to an additional 1.1-4 times the direct cost. Workers above age 45 are 1.25-2 times as likely to suffer lost-work injuries due to MSD’s than those younger than 30, and workers above age 50 require on average twice as many days away from work to recover from injury than workers below 30. Maintaining a competitive space in the global manufacturing environment requires leveraging new methods and technologies to reduce the costs of preventable injuries while improving productivity.

Rates of Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD) Increase with Age

Age Group Average (MSD) Rates (per 10,000 FTE):
All Workers 36.1
Age 45-54* 41.7
Age 25-34 33.0
Age 20-24 28.3
Age 16-19 19.3

Distortion occurs in MSD rates for individuals 55-64 because average retirement age is 58

  • 11 million manufacturing workers in the U.S.
  • Average Rate of MSD (0.0036) * 11 million people = 39,600 incidences/yr
  • 39,600 incidences * 9 days (avg. time lost) * 8 (hours/day) = 2,851,200 hours/yr
  • 2,851,200 * $35.67 (avg. direct compensation/hr) = Direct Cost of MSD’s = $101,702,304/yr
