From Mass Production to Scale Customisation: Challenges & Opportunities for Hong Kong Industrial Design Professionals (M2S)



With much research effort and hard work from last year, the M2S Pavilion provided the integrated platform to address the gap in expectations between the Hong Kong Industrial Design Professionals (HKIDP) and manufacturers diverging towards the two respective ends of scale customisation and mass production. The pavilion showcased the insights and findings of the research study and its associated thematic workshops so far involving up to 100 stakeholders. Knowledge and implications of scale customisation and Industry 4.0 technologies on manufacturing businesses were shared at the pavilion, with a distinct focus on the role of HKIDP facing the challenges and opportunities regarding smartmanufacturing.
