Editor's Comment 

We all hear much about digital transformation and the business and operational benefits to be had within manufacturing and engineering. However, in order to get the ball rolling companies of all sizes need to decide on an initial point of entry, and what elements of the digital journey to home in on in the first instance. As Aaron Blutstein, editor of Smart Machines and Factories, said during the recent DFA Media organised Talking Industry webinar on Digital Transformation, one of the biggest issues regarding the topic is getting people on board because some companies are so entrenched in their daily routine that there can be a challenge in getting them to recognise that something needs to change.

Britain’s manufacturers are beginning to move through the gears as growth prospects become more positive for the rest of the year! This was according to a major survey published by Make UK, which gives many manufacturers hope that that light is starting to appear at the end of the tunnel. While we must all be cautious as there are numerous things that could throw a spanner in the works, this nevertheless provides an indication of the positive attitudes that are beginning to take hold with the UK manufacturing sector.
