The Made Smarter programme, launched in November 2018, is a multimillion-pound initiative to boost manufacturing output across the North West. The pilot programme is all about the adoption of new industrial digital technologies with the aim of harnessing the power of this brave new world to increase productivity by 25 per cent and grow the region’s economy by £115m.
Partnering with Made Smarter, Insider’s Conference will outline the opportunities for the region’s businesses to get involved.
So you bought a robot, now what? We will hear what worked and what didn’t work and why the road from finding a solution to applying it can be rockier than expected. Expert speakers will identify the challenges facing the region’s manufacturers and how to solve them. We will hear real-life case studies from manufacturers both large and small – and at all stages of development – about what barriers they face for future growth and development and how they have sought to overcome them.
Attend to access advice on how digital technologies, including robotics, artificial intelligence, 3D printing and the Internet of Things, could revolutionise your manufacturing processes. The conference will also cover leadership for leaders, where to access funding, how to make the most of knowledge-transfer partnerships, as well as coping, communicating and embracing change.
