Manufacturing Leadership Awards Open: New Categories Recognize Era of Connectivity, Big Data, and Mobility

Frost & Sullivan's Manufacturing Leadership Council (MLC), announced today that the 2015 Manufacturing Leadership (ML) Awards nominations will open on Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014.

The ML Awards program has undergone significant enhancements including the addition of categories for manufacturers that are transforming their businesses through the use of emerging technologies, including big data and advanced analytics, mobility and the Internet of Things (IoT.)

In its eleventh year, the ML Awards is the premier program for honoring companies and individual leaders that are shaping the future of global manufacturing. In addition, the awards also honor technology providers that have assisted ML Awards winners in achieving transformational breakthroughs. They also celebrate the outstanding career achievements of manufacturing leaders who build best-in-class companies and help advance the manufacturing industry.

Recipients of the ML Awards receive global recognition as manufacturing industry leaders and are honored at the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, June 2-4, 2015, at the Omni La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, CA. Past ML Awards company honorees include 3M, Boeing Co., Coca-Cola, Eaton Corporation, Ford Motor Co., General Electric Co., General Motors Co., IBM, L'Oreal USA, Motorola, Nalco, and Raytheon.

"The addition of new categories for projects that leverage big data, mobility, and IoT is recognition that manufacturers around the world are entering a new era of hyper-connectivity in which everything from products in the field to machines on the shop floor will be generating vast streams of data," said David Brousell, Global Vice President and Editorial Director of the Manufacturing Leadership Council. "Manufacturers that leverage that information to optimize their businesses and give customers what they want are tomorrow's leaders."
