Modernising Asia's manufacturing landscape: Key considerations & actions

Most small to medium size Asia manufacturing companies have lesser financial capabilities as compared to their peers, thus any upgrading decisions require serious consideration. This panel will address some of the key issues manufacturers need to consider before taking the step to adopt modern techniques in their new and existing facilities. Key topics include:
  • What are the key considerations when engaging a vendor specialised in automation and 3D?
  • How do manufacturers maximise their ROI from upgrading existing facilities?
  • Understanding perspective of SMEs and how to build an ecosystem to support the landscape
  • Strategies required to move away from the mind-set of being a “just-another-contractor” to a value-adding, “co-developer”?
