To prepare the workforce for handling the advanced manufacturing operations, SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) launched the SkillsFuture Series for Advanced Manufacturing in November, 2017. The objective of this programme is to build a digitally savvy workforce equipped with relevant skills to support Singapore’s shift to emerging technology and high value-added activities.

Machines, automobiles and computers powered the first 3 Industrial Revolutions between the 18th and 20th centuries. Now, we are in the middle of the 4th Industrial Revolution led by artificial intelligence, smart manufacturing, robotics and the Internet of Things (IoT).

 

Advanced Manufacturing is the process of using these emerging technologies in the manufacturing process, leading to what is called smart factories. In smart factories, digital technologies are combined with machines to create an integrated cyber-physical system that enhances both productivity and product quality.

 

Advanced Manufacturing in Singapore

 

Advanced Manufacturing is already changing the manufacturing landscape across the world, with Singapore being among the top 25 nations which are in best position to benefit from the progress in this domain.

 

Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), the agency responsible for planning Singapore’s growth in business and innovation, has shared its vision of how advanced manufacturing will shape Singapore’s smart future.
