The manufacturing sector is on the cusp of the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR), bringing with it new technologies and techniques that will change the products, processes and supply chains involved in every aspect of industry.
This technology ushers in event greater connectivity that will allow manufacturers to maintain their competitive edge in a rapidly changing world, and respond flexibly and quickly to customers' requirements.
Not all manufacturers are at the same stage of knowledge about what this will mean for their business. Indeed, we are at the start of this 4IR journey and, understandably, many manufacturers are still getting to grips with the subject.
This event de-mystifies 4IR, setting out simple steps to help on the efficiency improvement journey.
