The aim of this study is to suggest the strategic implications for manufacturing 3.0 in Korea by reviewing an innovation approaches of German that is a source of manufacturing innovation in Europe. Today, growth potential of korean economy has been weakened by the rise of emerging economies. Furthermore, technological advantage of emerging economies has been strengthened. In this situation, Korea needs to make efforts to enhance global competitiveness. The growth of developing countries provides a new opportunities for Korea for export demand. However, this situation can be recognized as threats for Korea because Korea has to compete with those countries to expand market share. In this regard, reviewing the approaches of manufacturing innovation in German is important because German keeps remaining a high levels of competitiveness in spite of a rise of emerging economies and European recession. To do this, this research can give hints to advance the industrial policy improvements.
