Digital technologies are disrupting every aspect of manufacturing, and operational excellence is no exception. Advanced sensors allow for detailed process knowledge to be generated, and complex analytics technologies allow us to find deeper actionable insights within that data. Increasing levels of automation hold the potential to completely upheave traditional improvement techniques. Simulations and augmented reality allow us to bridge the digital and physical worlds, allowing us to make decisions and act faster and with better accuracy.

Agenda and the Discussion Leaders driving the conversations.
Efficiency. Effectiveness. Execution.

Beyond new technologies, the current digital revolution presents still more challenges and opportunities. Customers demand increasingly high quality and customised products on a very short time scale, forcing manufacturers to step up their game. An increasingly innovative and digital-savvy workforce can, if leveraged correctly, unlock huge gains in productivity and efficiency. New emerging business models promise to transform our operations entirely.
Identify and map value streams, cut inefficiency and build a self-sustaining commitment to world class manufacturing within your team. 
As part of our Digital Manufacturing Week 2019, we are launching our Operational Excellence Academy – 13th November – a one-day summit bringing together operational excellence and continuous improvement professionals from across UK manufacturing to rethink the status quo. Through a mix of thought-leading keynotes and expertly-led roundtable discussions, we’ll be tackling the most important issues through three key streams: Culture, Process & Quality, and Waste.
