Support companies in your network in becoming Factories of the Future!

Asking more than 130 European SME-leaders about their biggest manufacturing challenges, their answers were:

  • a mindset change to increase the employees’ willingness to change towards a more automated, digital way of working;
  • a need to move faster and smarter from new manufacturing ideas & concepts to realisation & value capturing;
  • the need for a clear strategy to generate added value from (machine) data;
  • how to detect new value creation opportunities, so through sustainability & resource efficiency measures;
  • the availability of practical company to use cases and best practices.

The ADMA approach consists of a holistic, integrated optimisation plan that prepares the entire organisation for the future and does not solely focuses on technology and digitization
