By  Jim McEachen, Chief Executive Officer, Cleaning Technologies Group Published by AMT News November 2012
Late last month we held another very successful AMT Global Forecasting & Marketing Conference. The theme of the conference was “Make Your Own Future,” and we learned much to help us do just that in the coming months and year.
Here is some food for thought. Are you satisfied with your new product development and R&D activities? Do your competitors surprise you with new, state-of-the-art products or services? Does new product development find itself playing “second fiddle” to delivery and production requirements in your company? Is product development sometimes concentrating on projects that linger, or that will not monetize when they are completed?
If you answered yes to one or more of the above questions, then you are like the vast majority of manufacturing equipment and services companies. Especially during these challenging economic times where we are experiencing great fluctuations in market growth and shrinkage, it is common that new product development and R&D take a back seat to current delivery requirements. During the good times, we focus all of our efforts on current production needs and managing growth. Then when things slow, we struggle to invest in new products as we deal with right-sizing to the current production requirements.
