Keynote: Six Rules of Digital Manufacturing

Adoption of digital technologies is having a profound impact across all industries, and manufacturing is no exception. With an ever increasing array of choices that can be made about which technologies to adopt and why, this keynote looks at six rules that can be applied to decisions you are making with regard to the adoption of these technologies in your business.

  • Which technologies will be the most impactful and how do I asses their maturity?
  • What KPI’s should I be thinking about to measure the effectiveness of new innovations in my business?
  • How do I think about the organisational changes I will need to make to accommodate these new technologies?
