Advanced Manufacturing Roadmap
Australian manufacturing is transforming.
Manufacturing supply chains are becoming increasingly global, with customisation and the integration of service offerings becoming the new norm. These product transformations are being driven by significant advances in digital connectivity and analytics, which are also playing a role in creating more efficient supply chains and factory floors. As key inputs become scarcer, and concerns grow over the known and unknown consequences of climate change, manufacturers are being forced to consider more sustainable operations and offerings.
