Event description

Description

Equipping the manufacturing industry for the future, now.

Join us for a discussion over a hot drink and a pastry. We’ll be analysing the implications of Industry 4.0 and the challenges it brings for manufacturing businesses.

For any companies wishing to take advantage of the opportunities on offer from cloud computing, automation and the efficient aggregation of large amounts of data, there’ll be a new set of challenges to face. Namely:

  • Understanding which systems to target first

  • Questions around commissioning the design of new platforms

  • Finance and employee issues

  • Harnessing the desire to work in an agile manner to eliminate waste and minimise risk

Modern manufacturers must be equipped for change and armed with an understanding of the potential impact. From changing trusted ways of working that have been embedded for years, through to ensuring staff aren’t alienated by automated processes, there are specific challenges.

We’ll share our experiences of companies responding well to this change to inspire each attendee to evaluate their own business and look critically at specific areas to test and measure. We’ll run through some of the techniques and tactics we think will be valuable for everyone in the room.

As the purpose of the event is a discussion for fresh thinking and ideas, we’ll also ask you to be generous in sharing your own thoughts, direct experiences and opinions.

We want to understand the pains and pressures experienced by those in the room and the opportunities foreseen to help the sector thrive.

As an output of the event, we’ll be creating meaningful, valuable content for the manufacturing industry, which will be shared publicly. Specific contributions will be made anonymous and we don’t expect anyone to share confidential company information.
