How SMEs can improve their agility & resilience with advanced manufacturing



The market environment is changing at an unprecedented speed today. COVID-19 has an enormous impact, but the exponential increase in innovation and disruption of the past 20 years already makes us live in a VUCA-world (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity) for a while. This means that (traditional) companies have to reinvent the way they do business to be successful, adopting digitization, lifecycle thinking, and human-centred organization methodologies.

The ADvanced MAnufacturing Support Centre (ADMA) offers manufacturing SMEs a balanced, holistic methodology introducing breakthrough thinking towards a Factory of the Future mind-set – manufacturing companies embracing Industry 4.0 opportunities adopting advanced manufacturing solutions and social innovation strategies to become more more competitive and sustainable.
