Why a smart value chain is crucial to operational and business success

Australia’s ‘Top 100 Manufacturers 2019’, powered by National Manufacturing Week, was recently released with the $383.2 billion industry, which employs over 791,000 Australians, projected to achieve a growth rate of 1.2 per cent over the next five years to $405.8 billion in 2023-241.

Asahi Beverages, the Australian New Zealand business of Asahi Group Holdings (Japan) that was listed 41st on this year’s ‘Top 100 Manufacturers’, moved up three places in the past year and was one of 17 food product manufacturing companies (the leading category of this year’s list) that made Australia’s ‘Top 100.’

“Undoubtedly, there are numerous factors that contribute to a manufacturing company being a leader or ‘Top 100 Manufacturer’,” said Anna Reid, general manager of manufacturing of Asahi Beverages. “The fundamental attributes that have contributed to our business success and inclusion on this year’s list of leading manufacturers, include having a clear strategic plan, a strong record of consistent and profitable growth, continued strong investment across Australia to improve our manufacturing and distribution facilities, improving efficiency across all areas of the business, driving continued innovation across the business, differentiating ourselves from competitors to attract great talent and having an extensive portfolio of great brands that Australians know and love.

“We are proud to be manufacturing in Australia and manufacturing some of the nation’s most loved brands, including: Schweppes, Solo, Asahi Super Dry, Pepsi, Gatorade, Cottee’s cordials, Spring Valley, and Vodka Cruiser. Although we are a relatively young company, having been formed in 2014, we have a rich history through our various integrated businesses, which have been acquired by Asahi Group Holdings.”

According to Liam Harrison, senior industry analyst at IBISWorld, the fact food production and manufacturing companies are the leading category within this year’s ‘Top 100 Manufacturers’ is indicative of Australia’s export and trade largest contributors, with integration a pathway to success for many companies.

“It’s certainly no surprise to see the ‘Top 100 Manufacturers’ for 2019 dominated by companies operating within food production and non-metallic mineral production. Australia is renowned for its strong agricultural exports and mining, energy and resources industry. Vertical integration is also major factor for many of leading manufacturers in generating revenue or stabilising the impacts of volatility to their manufacturing division. For the majority of Australia’s manufacturers, the major challenges that exist are the threat of global competitors with well-resourced and integrated supply chains, substantial energy costs and high wage costs.”

For Asahi Beverages, the integration of its 2,100 people (across Australia and New Zealand) and emerging technologies to build a smarter value chain, as well as a firm commitment to innovation, has provided a platform to both compete and grow. Reid, who will be presenting on ‘Building a Smart Value Chain’ during the conference program at National Manufacturing Week, also shared Asahi’s approach of finding the right technologies to meet strategic plans and deliver value was also a key factor in operational success:

“We have taken a mature journey approach, with a focus on building strong foundations to leverage future development of our operations. This involved developing an adoption plan across our supply chain, looking beyond technology to new skills and IT infrastructure, while working to strengthen existing processes to support reliability. Major technological innovations are fueling significant change throughout the world, with the manufacturing industry embracing the inter-connectivity of new and emerging technology or ‘Smart Manufacturing’ and ‘Industry 4.0’.

“At Asahi, we’ve been building a strong collaborative partnership between our business’ information technology and operational technology functions to ensure we have the right infrastructure backbone. We’ve also focused on digitising our factories in a structured way to achieve data standardisation and optimisation, which offers real-time analytics. Additionally, the agile learning approach we’ve adopted, focusing on process improvement and deliberate experimentation, coupled with embedding a problem-solving mindset amongst our employee base, have also been key contributors to our success.”

A flying start for innovation: NMW 2016

National Manufacturing Week 2016 began with buzz yesterday at Sydney Showground, with visitors offered a host of opportunities for innovation.

The NMW product showcase reflected the changing face of industry, with advanced and automated technologies in all Product Zones, while the NMW Seminar Theatre provided a platform for vital discussions around leadership, collaboration and how local businesses can affordably access world-class research services.

Co-located with the Safety First Conference & Expo and Inside 3D Printing, NMW 2016 is Australia’s largest, longest running manufacturing industry event.

Among the hundreds of exhibitors at NMW are those presenting new products to the Australian market: including local start-up 3D Brink and Amaero Additive Manufacturing, both introducing new machines that can create – for the first time in the world – larger-sized 3D printed parts.

The broader NMW showcase features dynamic advances in materials, robotics and more: with Impact Robotics hosting Australia’s first public demonstration of its Sawyer collaborative robot, ATOM showcasing a dispensing system for consumables and global powerhouse Saint-Gobain introducing its films, tapes and fabrics for engineered products.

NMW is also ‘home’ to organisations  delivering real, practical assistance for business innovation. The NSW Dept of Industry has a team of advisors on Stand 2620 outlining assistance programs, including – in addition to grants and incentives – helping direct you to potential industry partners. KPMG is also participating in the event, with its consultants sharing ideas for business growth.

Thursday’s session schedule features three separate speakers – including from The Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre, Western Sydney University and AusIndustry – sharing strategies for growth by engaging Australia’s research capabilities, followed by separate presentations on Skills Development and Funding for Innovation.

Day 2 of NMW will also feature a strong practical element, including Australia’s first public demonstration of the Sawyer Collaborative Robot, as well as of welding and riveting innovations. The program will conclude with an evening Plastic Seminar, outlining technical advances in Injection Moulding and auxilliary processes.

NMW runs through to Friday 13 May.

NMW 2016: Paving the way to new markets

Against a solid backdrop of manufacturing industry growth – the AI Group's March figures show that Australian manufacturing has grown for eight consecutive months and is now at its strongest point this decade –  this year's National Manufacturing Week (NMW) will prove a buoyant meeting place for businesses looking for ideas, technologies and solutions that can help their businesses get ahead.

NMW (May 11 – 13, Sydney Showground – Sydney Olympic Park) is Australia's largest, longest-running manufacturing event, bringing the industry together to see, touch and discuss new and innovative manufacturing solutions.  NMW 2016 will showcase hundreds of products and services from around the world, laid out in 12 Product Zones, ranging from Automation & Robotics to Digital Manufacturing, Intralogistics, Advanced Materials and more.

Among dozens of firsts for NMW 2016 will be innovative materials handling systems from Magnet Sales and Millsom Materials Handling, next generation LED lights from LEDified as well as new 3D printing technologies – from Konica Minolta, Amaero Additive Manufacturing, 3D Printing Systems, 3D Printing Studios, Sydney 3D Printing and more – that can help boost your production capabilities.

NMW also gives you the opportunity to see new and innovative technologies in action: with a rolling demonstration program of next-generation robotics, welding and super-fast weld cleaning, CNC routing and more.

As Kevin Smith, GM of Millsom Materials Handling describes, "You can tell people that their vacuum lifting technology means you effectively require only one person for a lifting task: but when you demonstrate vacuum lifting, people really get its potential for delivering OH&S and productivity gains."

"There's just nothing like a physical demonstration, which is why we're going to be part of NMW 2016," he said.  

Alongside its impressive showcase, NMW will also present a powerful seminar program featuring industry leaders sharing new ideas and strategies that have delivered proven success.

Among high profile speakers will be Dr Keith McLean, CSIRO's Manufacturing Flagship Director outlining some of the ways in which 400 Australian manufacturers have leveraged CSIRO research to help them target new, high value niche markets. CSIRO, says Dr McLean, stands ready to partner with more businesses to develop new products, processes and materials that can give local businesses an edge.

Also at the NMW Seminar Theatre, Sam Bucolo, Professor of Design Innovation at UTS will share his passionate interest in Design-Led Innovation, the approach used by global brands such as Apple, Nintendo & Alessi to generate creative product innovations.

There will also be a clear focus on reducing operational waste.  Speakers including Peter Meakin from the Opie Manufacturing Group will outline strategies for streamlining production, transport and even innovation processes, to free up time and/or restheirces for new programs.

NMW 2016 will also focus on emerging opportunities through its co-location with the Safety First Conference & Expo, Australia's one-stop workplace safety event, as well as Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, the Sydney edition of the world's largest 3D printing event.

Held once every two years in Sydney, NMW gives business professionals the most comprehensive, focused showcase of new ideas, technologies and strategies for being at the forefront of change and industry growth.

Don't miss out! Entry to NMW is free for trade visitors and registration is now open at nationalmanufacturingweek.com.au. By registering now, you'll access a range of services, including updates via the NMW website for this year's game-changing event.
