Abstract: This report summarizes the results of a study into the state of AI adoption and plans in the Swiss tech industries. In collaboration with Swissmem and Next Industries, the Chair of Production and Operations Management (Prof. Netland) at ETH Zurich has administered a survey among Swissmem’s members. The survey was sent to all Swissmem members in March 2024. A total of 209 senior managers returned the filled-in survey by the survey deadline a month later. We followed up a selection of interesting answers by interviewing ten senior managers. The findings provide insights into the state of AI adoption in the Swiss tech industry as of spring 2024 and the plans for the upcoming three years.
