Making it Smarter

Using technology to rethink the capabilities of UK manufacturing.

The manufacturing sector is undergoing a historic transformation of rapid advancement and innovation. Production now requires a complex set of communications and machines working in tandem to orchestrate the operations of the modern factory floor. The digitisation of manufacturing through 5G technology is set to enable key benefits such as smart production lines, predictive maintenance and more efficient supply chains, boosting productivity and growth. As a key component of the UK economy, exploiting the full potential of the UK manufacturing sector will be essential if levelling up is to be truly successful.
