Advanced Manufacturing is a hot topic for the European manufacturing SMEs. Manufacturing SMEs need to start their digital transformation journey to become a Factory of the Future.
The European Commission has launched a very important pan-European initiative to establish a European Advanced Manufacturing (ADMA) Support Centre to help SMEs assess the possibility of adopting advanced manufacturing solutions and transforming their organisation towards next-generation factories with more competitive, modern and sustainable production.
In April 2019, as a coordinator of DigiTech 4.0, ICT Cluster became a member of ADMA Support Centre and was certified to use and implement the methodology in order to support Bulgarian manufacturing companies.
The methodology consists of seven transformation domains, both technological and non-technological, to assist the company in terms of competitiveness, skills, technologies, intelligent production, customer focus, talent and etc.
3 Bulgarian companies have already started their transformation process through ADMA methodology, proving that the methodology is applicable in Bulgaria and in different industries.
