In this dynamic presentation, Sean will go through the new wave of disruptive technologies have fundamentally changed the relationship between customer and company. He will also detail how these new technologies allow companies to respond to this shift by better understanding and automating their manufacturing and supply chain operations, enabling them to become more personal, clocal and sustainable. He will also describe the mindset shifts that need to take place to enable organisations to thrive in this new age, and how the customer, not the firm, needs to be at the center of their universe.
As manufacturing becomes ever more customer centric, organisations must adapt to new processes such as Digital Thread: the flow of data fuelling the digital insights behind customer-centric experiences.
While only 15% of manufacturers currently have a digital strategy in place, most are cognizant of the fact that it is a vital component of their future success.
Set to break the world land speed record at over 1,000mph, Bloodhound SSC is a unique, high-technology supersonic car project that is pushing the limits of technology and innovation. This case study will explore:
We dive into the exciting world of Start-Ups and bring you the brightest ideas and best solutions to those key problems that have been plaguing your company.
Digital Twin methodology can be applied to a huge variety of physical objects and systems and systems from single parts through to entire factories and supply chain. But what value can they deliver?
Being able to pre-empt malfunctions is vital to minimise unplanned downtown - but understanding the sensors and processes to do it is not easy.
Moving from a PoC to a full scale roll out requires that pilots are only run with real business issues in mind.
All industries are told that big data will be the key differentiator between competitors. But for manufacturers, who produce more data than everyone else, it is imperative to ensure that the right data doesn't get lost in the noise. This presentation will explore :
This collaborative case study will explore how best to integrate new manufacturing concepts based on Industry 4.0. This presentation will explore:
As Industry 4.0 and Made Smarter have an increasingly large impact on manufacturing it is more vital than ever to ensure that you have a work force ready to meet the challenges ahead.
With software, services and machines coming from a multitude of suppliers and no single data standard reigning supreme, getting a unified view is a challenge.
Digitalising an industry with a history the length of manufacturing, and the legacy machines to prove it, is not easy. But the first hurdle is ensuring everyone is on the same page.
When it comes to innovating the supply chain, data and analytics play a hugely important role. However, there are a range of challenges, not only technical, but also human that must be addressed. This presentation will explore:
It is becoming increasingly apparent that to maintain a competitive advantage there needs to be a shift in the mind-set from the head office to the factory floor.
Data is increasingly being processed and stored with third parties like suppliers, vendors and other business partners. Protecting information has become a significant issue for organisations worldwide.
Organisational supply chain are becoming increasingly global and there is growing pressure from consumers to be ethical and able to account for every part.
Streamlining your supply chain is vital in an increasingly competitive atmosphere and machine learning allows you to discover patterns in your data and optimise without manual intervention.
With predictive maintenance ensuring the functionality of product development and an efficient supply chain, this presentation will explore:
Even the strongest supply chain is not infallible, and wherever that weakness is, it makes sense to have a plan B to step in when needed
For many industries nlockchain is a solution looking for a problem. However, in supply chain it serves to solve key issues around asset tracking.
The Made Smarter Program is set to receive another £121M from the governments £1.1bn Industrial Strategies Challenge Fund. We assess the impact this could have on UK Manufacturing through 2019.
The key challenge that many companies have when beginning to implement an Industry 4.0 solution is defining their roadmap and ensuring they can effectively measure success.
The lean approach provides the foundation for operational excellence by standardising processes and instilling a culture of continuous improvement, but it also ensures that an organisation is still the best possible place to take full advantage of Industry 4.0. This panel brings together those playing vital role in digital transformation with their organisation.
The additive manufacturing market is forecast to reach £69bn by 2025. We explore how UK manufacturers can get in at the ground level and ensure that they are utilising it to the full
The question is not Edge vs Cloud - the key question is how much of each and where are they best deployed. With lower latency at the edge but minimal processing power, we outline the ideal mix to ensure you get the best from each.
RPA (Robotic Process Automation) is a form of AI that is a key enabler of organisational transformation, allowing repretitive simple tasks to be automated and removed from human hands.
With data coming to the point of where it is the lifeblood of any company, manufacturers in particular, it is imperative to keep it secure.
Being able to deliver a real time view of business operations to the head office and empower them with a certain level of remote control will allow for more effective business oversight.
Building an entirely new factory from scratch is wasteful and potentially unaffordable, so integrating existing assets is the obvious solution.
How to choose when to automate your operations. Automation can be the answer to a whole host of manufacturing and operations questions. But deciding what, how and when to automate is not straightforward, and getting it wrong can be expensive and highly visible. We have developed a structured Automation Assessment tool to support you in this decision making . Benefits of the assessment include : a full review of production capabilities, clarification of automation objectives and priorities, and uniting stakeholders from across the organisation to create a company-wide strategy. This practical workshop will help you understand the benefits of this approach and demonstrate the impact it can have using project case studies from organisations like Jaguar Land Rover, Foxconn and Schlumberger.
Rolling our an IIoT solution beyond the initial pilot or proof of concept is an expensive endeavour, we lay out the key technologies to deliver strong ROI on a more limited budget.
Industry 4.0 adoption is a journey, one which can be started on by any company, and at quite an affordable price point if the business model and strategy are defined from the offset. There is a perception amongst SME's that digitalisation is very expensive and time consuming, which hold them back and hurts their competitiveness and productivity.
The Made Smarter Review set out how UK manufacturing can be transformed through the adoption of Industrial Digital Technology (IDT). In 2019, a Made Smarter North West Pilot was launched which is providing expert leading advice and matched funded support to SME's in the North West of England. This presentation will address:
Considering the recent political changes, the UK Manufacturing Sector is facing new and unique challenges. This Presentation will :
The manufacturing industry is not immune to the rise of green sentiment and the implementation of business models based on circular economy.
The convergence seems like one of the perennial debates in the implementation of IIoT and Industry 4.0 in the manufacturing sector. While most agree it is inevitable, ther remains some serious hurdles to getting there. Not least among these are cyber security and data standardisation. We take a deep dive into how security can be built in by design and whether there is a scope for creating homogenous data standards across departments.
