How to involve manufacturing SMEs in the ADMA long term pilot
29 april 2020 van 9:30 am tot 10:30 am
Whereas the ADMA transformation plan typically identifies two or three potential breakthrough areas for manufacturing SMEs in their journey towards Factories of the Future (future-oriented manufacturing companies embracing Industry 4.0 opportunities to their full extent to be more competitive, modern and sustainable – here an example of a French company), the objective of the ADMA long term pilot phase is to assist the company in defining an ADMA implementation plan for identified potential breakthrough areas.
Although there is no fixed format for the ADMA implementation plan – the seven ADMA transformation areas are quite diverse and therefore cannot be tackled in one single prescribed format – we’ve worked out four phases that are applicable for any kind of business and for any kind of manufacturing breakthrough area.
