Manufacturing today is a web of global activities, encompassing a multitude of different manufacturing technologies, computer-based data flow and control, and the management of supply chain and logistics. Manufacturing is the main stay of most economies, including Singapore, where we seek to move towards high-value added activities. The availability of highly qualified manufacturing engineers and managers is essential to the sustenance of such an economy.
