The TTJ Smart Manufacturing Award is designed to recognise timber product companies in the UK or globally that have completed investment projects in machinery & technology that have led to a significant improvement in production efficiency. Projects should also demonstrate progress towards Smart Manufacturing / Industry 4.0, which makes greater use of dataflow, interconnectivity between machines, automation and the Internet of Things (IoT). The award is open to all companies in the timber products supply chain from sawmills and wood-based panel producers right down to components producers and furniture manufacturers. Entries should detail the investment project brief, the machinery and equipment used and the subsequent improvements to production operations and the company generally. Entries should relate to investment projects completed from January 2021 onwards.
