Through smart, networked communities, your makers can create sustainable services and experiences, benefiting wider society.

No manufacturer is an island

Before 2020, radical transformation was a long-term goal for most manufacturers. Not anymore.

The disruption of COVID-19 created a unique opportunity to perform a ‘factory restart’, building a new, sustainable world of products, services and experiences, powered by people.

By transforming makers into changemakers through digital technology, your business can become part of an ultra-smart networked global community. We call this Society 5.0.

Society 5.0 is the ultimate example of where the future of manufacturing is heading; a world in which human innovation and technical precision unite to enable dramatic, systematic transformation.

From the shop floor to international consortia, achieving the maximum business benefit from Industry 4.0 requires openness at all levels.
Now, more so than ever before, manufacturers need partnerships across extended ecosystems to help them operate, innovate and withstand the effects of unexpected disruption.

Strength in numbers

Manufacturers have always been good at the bigger picture – now this picture must include society.

Even with talented changemakers at the heart of your business, it is difficult to respond to market forces on your own. For strength in numbers, you need strategic partnerships.

Smart factory transformation is the first step towards co-creative manufacturing. Give your makers the connected technologies they need to collaborate with partners and develop new service-based opportunities.

In Industry 4.0, leading manufacturers have the resources to build a broad partner ecosystem and change the landscape together.

This best-in-class, collaborative approach will remodel your business, creating new opportunities around the provision of services and customer experiences – with tangible bottom-line benefits.

Influencing Society 5.0

A co-creative ecosystem will not only empower your changemakers; it will transform manufacturing as a whole, delivering smarter, more sustainable approaches that benefit the world we live in.

Society 5.0 is our vision for an ultra-smart networked global community, where the power of people, technology and partnerships combine, directly contributing to social, environmental and cultural change.

In this society, manufacturers will be at the forefront of transformation, driving initiatives like the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations.

Embracing society 5.0 will enhance your global reputation, driving new business opportunities. It will empower you to attract ethically conscious, caring, compassionate changemakers, who share your customers’ values and have the potential – and resources – to change the world.

By 2022, cross-industry collaboration may generate a 10% increase in revenue

The swift rise and surprising importance of digital ecosystems

Forget what you’ve been told; industry boundaries are not stable, vertical integration doesn’t necessarily create efficiencies over market trading and asset ownership doesn’t always create sustainable barriers to entry.

It’s time to challenge these assumptions and show how Industry 4.0 can:

  • Drive manufacturers’ operational excellence
  • Connect end-to-end supply chains
  • Make factories smart, smarter, smartest.
