Singapore’s precision engineering (PE) industry plays a crucial role in improving manufacturing processes and providing critical support for a wide range of businesses, such as the semiconductor, marine & offshore, aerospace and medical technology industries.
Over the years, the PE industry has constantly invested in automation to raise productivity. Yet, disruptive technologies are challenging existing business models. To address this, businesses will need to embrace new capabilities and digital technologies and solutions to move towards higher value-added activities.
The PE Industry Transformation Map (ITM) can offer support. It identified new growth areas to help the industry achieve S$14 billion in value-add and create 3,000 professional jobs by 2020. The national plan will also prepare you for the digital manufacturing era ahead by developing complementary capabilities in robotics, additive manufacturing, advanced materials, sensors, lasers & optics.
