Smart manufacturing and its implications for Singapore's SMEs

In a commentary, SMU Professor of Organisational Behaviour & Human Resources (Education) Thomas Menkhoff and SMU postgraduate student Gopalakrishnan Surianarayanan, who is currently pursuing his Doctor of Business Administration degree, discussed about smart manufacturing and its implications for Singapore’s small and medium-sized enterprises. They shared about their ongoing study on the impact of Industry 4.0 (I4.0) on the business models of local manufacturers, and how their research interviews with key decision-makers across Singapore’s I4.0 eco-system helped to identify five key drivers and four main barriers for sustained I4.0 success.
