A unique path for Australian manufacturing

The future of Australian manufacturing will be diverse and complex, driven by digital infrastructure, mass customisation and the need to better understand supply chains and respond faster to dynamic markets.

By virtue of my role as the Director of the Future Manufacturing National Research Flagship at CSIRO, I am often confronted by this question. Many commentators and peers expect a simple answer, but that would be underestimating the complexity and diversity of manufacturing, both in terms of challenges and opportunities.

The recent work undertaken by the Prime Minister’s Manufacturing Task Force and other commentary is beginning to create a picture of what the future could (or ought) to look like for manufacturing in this country.
