WHAT IS IT ABOUT?                            

Around the world, traditional manufacturing industry is in the throes of a digital transformation that is accelerated by exponentially growing technologies (e.g. intelligent robots, autonomous drones, sensors, 3D printing). The pace of change reflects ‘Moore’s law’ on the speed at which information technology-driven change happens. Companies and their industrial processes need to adapt to this rapid change if they are not to be left behind by developments in their sector and by their competitors. These trends are not to be compared simply with a greater level of production automation, process that has, since the 1970s, been driven by developments in electronics and information technology. The widespread adoption by manufacturing industry around the world of information and communications technology is now paving the way of disruptive approaches to development, production and the entire logistics chain. This networking within an ‘internet of things, services, data and people’ will transform the future of manufacturing as well as most of the engineering services.
