The next Manufacturing Measurement Network (MMN) event entitled ‘Digital Manufacturing’ will take place at the 3M BIC on 17 October 2017.

The event will attempt to clarify what is meant by ‘Digital Manufacturing’ and how it can be adopted and the benefits embraced by manufacturers.

They will focus on SMEs, as it is smaller businesses who often find the challenges of introducing new technologies more challenging due to time and cost constraints, and will attempt to challenge pre-conceived ideas, to bring clarity and understanding to how you can take the first steps in becoming more digitally enabled.

There are many reasons why manufacturers should consider adopting new digital technologies as soon as possible including:

  • Reduce the cost of unplanned maintenance shut downs to boost productivity,
  • Potential pressure from higher tiers in the supply chain to share data, possibly even live views of suppliers manufacturing processes,
  • Opportunities for adoption of digital technologies to better understand, manage and control manufacturing processes, thereby reducing the cost of quality or energy use,
  • Helping to create more flexible manufacturing systems which are more agile and able to react quickly to customers emerging needs.

Adopting digital technologies does not necessarily mean designing new manufacturing processes from scratch, much can be done to instrument current systems to be able to capture useful data. It is the intelligent use of this data that can make a difference to how a business operates.

Register for our Digital Manufacturing event to find out more, to network with like-minded businesses and to stay in touch with new technologies and new ideas, as well as learn how to use data to create business benefits.

The event is free with parking. Food and drink will be provided.
