Scotland's Model Digital Factory Demonstrator (MDFD) will showcase end-to-end Industry 4.0 technology deployed in a digital factory environment. Opening in early 2023, the new demonstrator's purpose is to jumpstart conversations about Industry 4.0 adoption between investors, partners, students, experts and academics.

Predictions of a contraction in the manufacturing sector, brought on by supply chain issues, harsh economics and a lack of skills, will likely have an impact on manufacturing investments and innovation. However, the new Model Digital Factory Demonstrator (MDFD), opening at the National Manufacturing Institute of Scotland (NMIS) in spring of next year, hopes to ease some of those pressures.
