Industry 4.0 and capability development in manufacturing subsidiaries

Andrea Szalavetz

Technological Forecasting and Social Change, 2019, vol. 145, issue C, 384-395

Abstract: This paper investigates whether advanced manufacturing technologies (AMT) can modify the patterns of upgrading in manufacturing subsidiaries operating in FDI hosting factory economies. Does the digital transformation of local manufacturing engender the accumulation of local technological and R&D capabilities, or the beneficial impact of AMT remains confined to production capability?
