The manufacturing landscape can be thought of as consisting of seven interlinked strands:
- trends and drivers: events or patterns that will influence manufacturing industries in the future
- challenges: overcoming obstacles in creating and/or providing value for the UK
- market needs and opportunities: products, processes or services that can capture market share to 2025
- high value manufacturing needs: products, processes or services that the manufacturing industry will have to provide to meet the perceived market needs if it is to be competitive in the future
- national competency: an attribute of the national manufacturing industry that enables businesses to respond to the key global trends and drivers, to be competitive and to capture value in global markets for the UK in the future
- research and development: emerging science and technologies that have the potential to have a positive impact on
HVM products, processes, services and activities to underpin the development of competencies
- enablers: actions required to overcome the non-technical obstacles to HVM value creation and capture.
