The targeted investments that global manufacturing leaders are making in digital transformation initiatives are resulting in more successful product launches, according to research from Supplyframe and Lifecycle Insights.

A new 2021 NPI and Sourcing Study surveyed over 250 product design, engineering, manufacturing, and supply chain professionals who work in organizations across industries like consumer electronics, industrial equipment, automotive, and telecom. Participating organizations averaged between $750-million and $2-billion in revenue.
