Manufacturing Value-added is the keyword that means the most to manufacturers who try to make the best use of their technical or engineering capabilities, organizational efficiencies, and commercial strategies. Hard as they try, many fail at capturing and monetizing value. This is born out of two obstacles: Firstly, they don’t differentiate their products from those of the competition. Secondly, they offer little to no incentive to persuade buyers to pay price premiums.
