Government, Industry and the Trade Unions have come together in an unprecedented way to launch a new set of Guiding Principles for Digitilisation to help companies and the workforce make the most of the increasing drive towards a new digital era for manufacturing.
The principles were launched following a meeting of the Commission with the Secretary of State for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy the Rt Hon Andrea Leadsom MP.
According to Made Smarter, by 2030 the UK will be the global leader in the creation, adoption and export of advanced digital technologies, shaping how the modern world does business. These new technologies will enable faster, more responsive and more efficient processes to deliver improved productivity and higher quality products at a reduced cost.
To help companies and workforces drive the take up of new technologies in a way that isn’t disruptive but produces good jobs, improved productivity and a clean footprint Made Smarter has designed six guiding principles which it is asking companies to commit to themselves, as well as extending the relationship to their supply chains.
