What’s it really like to be part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

Posted on 26 Oct 2017 by The Manufacturer

There has been lots of talk about the Fourth Industrial Revolution, but what is it really like to be part of it? What have we all learned so far? How is this impacting what we do next?

Fourth Industrial Revolution - UK Leadership in Manufacturing: The Post-Revolutionary Debate - Dassault Systemes Join Dassault Systemes on Wednesday 1 November at the state-of-the-art Cisco Experience Centre, for a unique opportunity to connect with like-minded manufacturing decision-makers and influencers.

This is an ideal chance to share and debate the lessons and future thinking that will drive your businesses and the UK forward as a global leader of manufacturing excellence.

The format of the day will be a little different. Rather than endless presentations, you and your peers will participate, collaborate and shape the debate via the use of anonymised interactive technology.

Via interviews with manufacturing icons, interactive working groups assessing challenges and opportunities, and interactive manufacturing experiences in Dassault Systemes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Playground, you will engage with:

  • the ecosystems of supply and support
  • design-cycle agility
  • transformation and digitalisation
  • the impact of pre-Brexit uncertainty
  • the UK government industrial review
  • and ample networking over British catering and a post-event drinks reception

The conclusions generated throughout the day will be provided as a report to help shape discussions within your organisation.
