The AM-Lead program helped us gain practical insight on the ambidextrous strategy of

1) Exploiting the Knowns for Lean Manufacturing and,
2) Exploring the Unknowns for new tools and techniques in our Industrial 4.0 journey

The passion and dedication demonstrated by SP and Bosch Rexroth in delivering this AMLead Programme, planned and executed with German precision, have inspired us to look beyond our bespoke manufacturing model, and explore the possibility of integrating scalable IoT solutions to our extremely high-mix-single-piece operations.

~ Ms Lim Hee Joo, Executive Director, Wah Son Engineering Pte Ltd
(Participant from 2nd Run in May 2019)

The AMLead Programme has benefited me and my organisation in many ways such as:

1) The transformation of the usual method of 'making' to new method of 'producing' through connectivity;
2) Insight of technologies available to industrial 4.0 platforms and;
3) The follow-up support available after the AMLead programme to our organisation in i4.0 transformation.
