They all leverage best-in-class processes, technologies and engaged teams to distinguish them-selves from the competition. Other award winners included The Dow Chemical Company for Big Data and Analytics Leadership; GE Global Research for Internet of Things in Manufacturing Leadership; and The Boeing Company for Mobility in Manufacturing Leadership. The other winners in the Operational Excellence Leadership category were Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corp., Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technologies, Peterbilt Motors Company, and Rockwell Automation.
"Winners of the 2016 ML Awards have proven that they are at the forefront of a global, technology-driven transformation that we call Manufacturing 4.0," said Global Vice President and Editorial Director of the Manufacturing Leadership Council David R. Brousell.
"By relentlessly improving and digitizing every corner of their operations, these outstanding leaders are not only delivering greater value to customers, they are redefining excellence in the manufacturing industry. We congratulate them," he added.
