Connecting industry with enabling technologies, research capabilities and training to modernise and transform manufacturing, integrating i4.0

The Factory of the Future at Flinders University will work with international and domestic businesses to deepen understanding of the growing importance of digitisation and advanced manufacturing technologies, and to identify opportunities to implement industry-leading applications. It will develop and test robotics and automation, including cyber-physical systems, along with digital roadmaps to help sustain the uptake and diffusion of advanced technologies.

The Factory of the Future will develop training and cultural programs to enable industries to successfully deliver significant change within organisations. It will also support leaner practices in manufacturing to reduce waste.

By supporting the testing and implementation of advanced technologies, the factory will be able to significantly increase the innovative capabilities and performance of companies, leading to the establishment of deeper productive collaborations with researchers and world-class facilities.

Access to Industry 4.0 technologies, processes and expertise is essential to enable businesses working across many South Australian industry sectors to compete on a global stage.

“The Factory of the Future will be placed right at the heart of developing sovereign industrial capability… we’re bridging the gap between industry, smaller businesses and academia, and we’re looking to get that accelerator effect.”

Craig Lockhart, Managing Director,
BAE Systems Maritime Australia
