Customers expect fast delivery times and highly customized products. This forces SMEs to transform their production processes to a new way of manufacturing. Speeding up manufacturing requires human-centered process innovation (‘Quick Response Manufacturing’) and innovative digital technologies (‘Industry 4.0’).
QRM4.0 will support SMEs in their Quick Response Manufacturing journey through coaching, training and the sharing of expertise and best practices. Participating SMEs will receive practical know-how and will learn from hands-on workshops, company visits, demonstrations and interactions with innovation leaders. Through a voucher system, they will receive support and coaching to transform and digitize their production process. A learning network of manufacturing SMEs and IT solution providers will serve as a platform to exchange best practices.
