I do think that MM will eventually go away -- I doubt there will be any MM consultants ten years from now. It will...
mostly be SRM and supply chain consultants at that point, and the modules should change dramatically. But manufacturing and materials management is not going to go away, so what you need to do is to keep on the cutting edge and ride the next wave.
For example, have you thought about trying to incorporate RF and perhaps RFID into your skill set, along with some warehouse and inventory management skills? I always say that it's better to try to move ahead in SAP rather than chase it from behind. In the end, the best way to find out about your level of marketability is to put your resume out there. The more phone calls and inquiries you get, the more marketable you are. It's a simple test and a lot more accurate than any advice I could provide. Good luck.
