CHAIRMAN’S PERSPECTIVE:
M4.0: Is the US Keeping Up With Global Competition?
MLC Board of Governors Chairman John Fleming, former Executive Vice President of Global Manufacturing & Labor Affairs, Ford Motor Co.

The U.S. Government has defined the importance of leading in advanced manufacturing excellence and what is needed if U.S. manufacturers are to fully exploit the “Digital Transformation” inherent in M4.0. But are U.S. companies keeping pace with foreign competitors? To get ahead of the curve, now it is the time for manufacturing leaders to define the strategies, allocate the resources, set objectives, and measure progress.
