A Shining Light in Malaysian Manufacturing

The global manufacturing community is lagging behind in its adoption of IR4.0 tech. More than 70% of companies are stuck in pilot purgatory, while only a select group of leading manufacturers are able to deploy advanced manufacturing at scale. So to close this gap and accelerate the adoption of advanced technologies in manufacturing, the World Economic Forum set up the Global Lighthouse Network. And just last month, Western Digital’s factory in Batu Kawan was announced as the first and only Malaysian member of the WEF Global Lighthouse Network. Our friends from Western Digital talk to us about the program, and what this means for the manufacturing sector here in Malaysia.
