Summary

Manufacturing is becoming automate and sevice-driven by digital platforms. Industry is changing into low-costs onsite manufacturing. This will cause drastic changes to the structure of industry and society. In this research project, we try to answer the question "how can we make sure that Finland can thrive in this change?" We not only envision a roadmap of how high-tech manufacturing will change, but also show concretely what are the key technological and societal drivers that drive this change, and explain what kind of business, educational, and societal models are needed in order to ensure that Finland and Finnish companies are able to survive and reap the most benefit from thsi revolutionary change. We study how automatic manufacturing of properly selected products could increase jovs and how the increase income due to automation could be used for supporting those people who will out of jobs due to automation, thus preventing the division of society.
