MCPD in Asia

By Dr. Alin Posteucă

The interest in Cost-Competitiveness Improvement provided by MCPD has been increasing in the Asian continent in recent years.

New dimensions of MCPD were published again in Industrial Automation Magazine (Mumbai, India) in the last issue of June 2019.

Industrial Automation is a monthly magazine catering to the Factory and Process Automation needs of the industry. The magazine is one of the most widely read and referred trade journals in the automation industry – India’s No.1 Industrial Automation Portal. With a monthly circulation of 10,000 copies and readership of about 100,000, the magazine readers cover a wide range of industry stakeholders.

Therefore, MCPD is gaining more and more global interest and recognition because it responds to the main need of companies: a sustainable competitive supremacy through Cost-Competitiveness Improvement.

In this context, I want to thank the publishing team of Industrial Automation for opportunities and appreciation.

At the same time, I want to thank the top managers and practitioners in the Asia area with whom I have had and I have many discussions and projects in progress.
