The US manufacturing sector is worth more than $2 trillion to the national economy, and supports the employment of over 17.5 million people. The industry as a whole, however, depends heavily on the thousands of companies dedicated to developing and building production machinery.

Those working in this complex sector must overcome a unique set of challenges as they search for operational efficiency. Together, these challenges are enough to hinder planning and scheduling efforts, and ultimately restrict productivity.
