The Art of Manufacturing – monozukuri

“Society 5.0 special”

A New Balance for Manufacturing.

In this edition we will introduce the idea of balance in all things whether that be work-life or the challenges of technology vs social change. These are areas that we, Mitsubishi Electric have been tackling in recent years. The topic takes on even more relevance now as we have all had to adapt rapidly to a set of very challenging conditions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. New work practices, often remote working, is for many of us something we have had to come to terms within a short space of time. And those times are driving change, but it must be redefined from a human-centered and societal perspective. Digital technologies and collaborative systems are ready to support and protect both people and manufacturing across industries, countries and communities. We hope that together we can find a new balance for today’s manufacturing industries.
