Author(s): Ajayandaran Arumugam, Hamed Khazaei, Amiya Bhaumik, Thavamaran Kanesan
Abstract: The convergence of emerging technologies and commitments of manufacturing enterprises has formed a trend in reshaping the global manufacturing landscape. Hence, electrical and electronic (E&E) manufacturers should not be expected to ‘face it alone’ in the current manufacturing environment. Specifically, manufacturing companies will profit from intelligent operational relationships with suppliers and government programmes that promote and support the adoption and usage of advanced development tactics and technology. Thus, the study aims to emphasize the influence of digital technology adoption on the E&E manufacturing industry through the lens of leadership effectiveness. Additionally, the current study focused on identifying and altering the dynamics of new technologies in the E&E manufacturing sector where nations are vigorously competing for advanced manufacturing leadership.
Keywords: Perceived Cost Effectiveness, Digital Technology Adoption, Leadership Effectiveness, Digital Literacy
