FMM, in collaboration with the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC), is conducting a study to determine the adoption of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) among members.
The objective of the study is to facilitate greater ICT adoption among manufacturers and further improve efficiency in business operations and manufacturing activities by:
- Identifying the level of ICT adoption within the manufacturing industries and the constraints in using ICT;
- Using the findings to help draw up relevant ICT programmes and activities, including awareness, training and others.
A faster and more widespread adoption of ICT could give manufacturing companies a definite competitive advantage towards becoming knowledge-driven enterprises with enhanced productivity growth, higher value-add and innovation.
Increasing ICT adoption, particularly in new technologies like the Internet of Things, Big Data, Information Security, E-Commerce and Cloud Computing is also one of the Government’s missions. FMM and MDeC will use the survey findings to formulate future ICT programmes in these technologies, including proposing to the Government appropriate incentives for the manufacturing sector.
Given the critical contribution of this survey, Monash University of Malaysia has been engaged to help enrich the data mining and analysis of members’ feedback.
We seek members’ support and participation to ensure a good sample size, representative of the issues hampering ICT adoption in the manufacturing sector.
The 1-page questionnaire takes less than ten minutes to complete (click here to download Word Document Version

The closing date for responses is 3 March 2016
