Making the margins

Every year the game gets harder to play:

Commodity price increases, direct labour cost pressure, energy cost increases, customer and consumer pressure for lower cost, better value, shorter runs, shorter product life cycles, more innovation, thinner layers of management, increasing indirect burdens – the customer wants more.

For how many is the typical response a capital investment in automation? For how many is it  to engineer the value from a product? For how many is the answer to delist or lose products with low or even negative margin? And for how many more is it merely to replace the operational managers who cannot make a big enough step change in performance?
