Infogram: advanced manufacturing and production

By World Economic Forum

Monday October 19, 2020


Breakthroughs in computing, sensors, mobile connectivity, artificial intelligence, robotics, 3D printing, and advanced materials are transforming manufacturing and production systems. New business models, based on platforms and developing an ability to offer new services rather than simply delivering products, will change the ways that manufacturing companies operate. Policy-makers and business leaders will need to develop new related approaches and work together, in order to build innovative production systems that truly benefit everyone.

This briefing is based on the views of a wide range of experts from the World Economic Forum’s Expert Network and is curated in partnership with Dr. Torbjørn Netland, the Head of Chair of Production and Operations Management at ETH Zurich.
