Good news! Total manufacturing activity in the United States grew for the ninth straight month in April. Manufacturing is now at its highest level since June 2004. You can read the full story in the CNN article, “Manufacturing grows for 9th straight month.”
This might sound like déjà vu, if you read my news release a few weeks ago, “Manufacturers Use Inventory Software to Keep Up with 8 Months of Growth.” It’s great to see that this isn’t just a flash in the pan, but it could be the genesis of a real recovery for the economy.
Now that manufacturing is turning the corner and entering a recovery phase, manufacturers need to think about how to gain competitive advantages. One of the quickest and most cost-effective ways to do this is by using manufacturing inventory software.
Manufacturing inventory software allows manufacturers to optimize their production by making sure they have enough parts on hand to complete projects. It also helps them avoid having too many parts. Capital is too precious to tie up in nonessential equipment.
