Transforming Manufacturing, Embracing Digital
The Future of #UKMFG
There are 2 major concerns for every modern manufacturer; ensuring maximum operational performance and embracing new opportunities for growth. To address these concerns, compete successfully, and position for the future there is a need for manufacturers to embrace digital transformation and the Industry 4.0 imperative. This shift to digital, not only within manufacturing but across our entire lives has, and will continue to introduce new ways of working and uncover new opportunities.
Atos in Manufacturing
Atos focus on 3 key Manufacturing sub-sectors in the UK; Aerospace & Defence (A&D), Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) and Automotive.
