UK Manufacturing is facing a supply chain crisis. Rising prices, transport delays, materials shortages and working capital pressure. All sectors are being impacted, with frontline manufacturers squeezed by customer requirements and supplier challenges.
The Made Smarter Innovation | Digital Supply Chain Hub is designed to tackle supply chain difficulties head on – by accelerating innovation of digital technologies to target bottlenecks and pinpoint unnecessary waste. The Future of Supply Chain Labs is being led by Deloitte and EDGE Digital Manufacturing and funded by the Hub to help SME and larger manufacturers to explore and realise the potential of digital technologies to increase productivity and competitiveness by digitising supply chains.
We’ll be hosting workshops for both SMEs and larger organisations to explore their digitalisation roadmaps. Through structured workshops and one-to-one support Future of Supply Chain Labs will help you to discover how to leverage digital technologies and to develop smarter supply chains, as well as the wider support and funding available for digital technology innovation and adoption.
Targeted for our SME audience, these Labs will provide you with a creative space to explore and learn new ideas and digital technologies which can directly improve your supply chains; and to design, test and experiment with new approaches; outside of your day-to-day environment.
The Bespoke Labs, co-led by Deloitte, is aimed at larger well-established organisations. Deloitte will be helping organisations across all industries and sectors discover different ways to leverage digital technologies and develop smarter digital supply chains. The goal of the labs is to embark clients on a tailored journey with industry experts, covering key pressing topics, to develop a 120-day actionable roadmap.
The Made Smarter Innovation | Digital Supply Chain Hub will help you understand how the UK transforms and innovates with smart manufacturing and digital technologies. Sign up to our newsletter to receive regular updates on all our work and future opportunities.
