Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service

The Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service (SMAS) was established in 2004 to provide small and medium sized manufacturers with practical support and advice on new manufacturing technology and best practice.

SMAS can offer a number of services to businesses including:

  • a capital asset review service, to help companies to assess the benefits of investing in advanced manufacturing technologies and equipment. More than 640 reviews have now been carried out (launched in June 2016)
  • a manufacturing 4.0 service that helps manufacturing companies to take advantage of new technologies and advance their integration with data and digital. More than 180 diagnostics have been carried out since the service launched
