Are you a leader in a small to medium-sized manufacturing business and want to make your company more competitive?

Over the past decade, a number of technologies have reached important

levels of maturity, such as improvements in computing power and wireless connectivity, advancements in mathematical algorithms, and lower costs of sensors and electronic hardware. The convergence of these 

trends means that we are now seeing the commercialization of new

technologies and applications for the manufacturing shop floor – often referred to as Industry 4.0.

Industry 4.0 technologies digitize and integrate processes across the entire business, from product development and purchasing, through manufacturing, logistics, and service. They can also integrate your operations with external

suppliers and customers, simplifying activities across your entire supply chain. Ultimately, these technologies can help to increase productivity, lower operating costs, improve quality, and enhance your competitiveness.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

 

During the three hour workshop & seminar you will:

 

Receive an overview of market ready smart

manufacturing technologies, including expert

advice and best practices.

 

  • Complete a readiness assessment to identify opportunities for your organization to adopt smart manufacturing technologies to close the gaps in your digital processes.
  • Hear from a startup who successfully implemented a new digital manufacturing technology, and how it has delivered benefits to their operations.

 

Connect with and network with industry resources and supports in your region that can help you plan and implement technologies on your shop floor or in your business processes.
