Global industry association IPC has announced the release of a new report on the progress of the evolution of the ‘Factory of the Future’. The report comes after the association recently convened a roundtable of electronics executives to discuss trends driving the branch‘s shift towards increased digitisation. The executives concluded that the transition features many challenges and pitfalls but that it will become increasingly critical to any company seeking to compete in the global economy. A summary of the discussion is available here: www.ipc.org/solutions/ipc-factory-future

In reaching their conclusion, participants discussed common barriers in adopting smart manufacturing technologies and skill disparities in the electronics manufacturing workforce. They also shared practices they believed to be important as companies work to increase digitization and enhance manufacturing operations. Among other topics, company leaders talked about creating a workplace culture that embraces change and innovation.

“Executives agreed that despite the challenges in transitioning to the factory of the future, they have recognized the value in doing so and are now looking to integrate solutions that will deliver measurable benefits to their company,” said Matt Kelly, IPC chief technologist.
