The Advanced Centre for Manufacturing has released a new report, Advanced Manufacturing: A New Definition for a New Era, to help manufacturers to better understand how advanced manufacturing applies to their business, regardless of sector or size.
The report is particularly recommended reading for applicants to the current Manufacturing Modernisation Fund grant program as it can help you both understand the concepts and clarify how it applies to your business when addressing the merit criteria in your grant application.
The principles of advanced manufacturing are about much more than production processes, according to Dr Jens Goennemann, Managing Director of the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC). Businesses should also be thinking about “R&D, design, supply chain and logistics, mass customised goods, post-sales support and services”.
