Automation can provide significant productivity improvements, but poorly considered solutions can lead to expensive and highly visible mistakes. This event will explore the opportunities offered by automation from a number of different perspectives, highlighting both the broader benefits and the potential downsides and examining what drives successful implementation.
As well as showcasing current robotics, we will also consider the manufacturing implications of wider technology areas such as Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things.
