Australian manufacturing currently contributes approximately 6% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), accounts for almost $100 billion in exports and employs 850,000 people.

Technological advances are moving manufacturing towards a seamless amalgamation of physical and digital worlds, with fast integration, feedback and control loops throughout distributed manufacturing infrastructures. Strong market disruption in the industry has created new opportunities and Australia is preparing to embrace the next industrial revolution.

Standards Australia recognises the challenges and opportunities and is actively working with stakeholders to ensure Australia is not only equipped to manage this new cycle of change, but also to implement it.
