ADDED launches Index for manufacturers

Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) has launched the ‘Abu Dhabi Smart Manufacturing Index’, which guides and facilitates private sector players’ transition to Industry 4.0 technologies, applications, and methods in line with the Abu Dhabi Industrial Strategy, which launched in June.

The launch of the ‘Abu Dhabi Smart Manufacturing Index’ provides a critical, comprehensive framework for assessing capabilities of industrial facilities, identifying gaps, and recommending practical steps for reaching the targeted Industry 4.0 maturity, according to the Abu Dhabi Media Office

The index empowers manufacturers with the necessary knowledge and training to initiate an Industry 4.0 transformation journey and scale up with speed and quality. It breaks down concepts into six building blocks to provide a clear and easy-to-follow roadmap, which starts by evaluating a production facility’s current state, followed by ways to raise readiness levels, proposed steps necessary for transforming their facilities, and identifying optimal production solutions to help reap gains of shifting to advanced manufacturing.

Mohamed Ali Al Shorafa, chairman of ADDED, said: “The Abu Dhabi Industrial Strategy has ushered in a new era, not only for the manufacturing sector, but for the whole economic landscape in the region. To further enhance a smart, circular, and sustainable economy, we are forging ahead with taking the manufacturing sector to the next level by empowering industrial facilities to keep pace with latest trends and solutions.”

Al Shorafa further explained: “We believe it is of paramount importance to equip manufacturers with vital, seamless, and effective mechanisms to transition to Industry 4.0 technologies and applications to drive future growth, and pre-empt for shifts in demand and supply. The ‘Abu Dhabi Smart Manufacturing Index’ addresses all aspects of the transition to methods of tomorrow’s manufacturing.”

Since the launch of Abu Dhabi Industrial Strategy, ADDED has been rolling out initiatives and partnering with leading global institutions to deliver the strategy’s ambitious objectives, including the targeted growth of the sector to Dhs172bn, creating 13,600 new jobs, and increasing the emirate’s non-oil exports to Dhs178.8bn by 2031.
