As manufacturing evolves, there is a greater need to understand the crucial decisions companies face in this ever-changing landscape. Kelley faculty members are engaged with several manufacturing companies to better understand their strategies, needs and goals. These findings generate knowledge to help companies make calculated decisions about the future of their industry.

Researchers in Indiana—home to more than 8,000 manufacturers—are in a unique position to join manufacturers in this journey to monitor and chronicle their decisions along the way and glean learnings that will propel this industry into the future.
