Innovation Through Technology

This conference is free to attend – passes are allocated on a first come, first served basis for attendees of manufacturing companies.


We are now in the advent of the next industrial revolution. The internet, celebrating its 25th year, has enabled such a level of connectivity; it is affecting the entire manufacturing model. The Manufacturer invites you to take your place at Future Factory Series: Innovation in Manufacturing Technology; your business will not be the same again.

This one day conference will delve into the heart of two concepts that will change almost every aspect of manufacturing, from product development through to after sales servicing: Industry 4.0; and the Internet of Things.

Through innovation case studies, thought leadership and the latest academic thinking, you will be provided with the knowledge and know-how, so you can keep abreast of the latest developments and opportunities that these innovations in manufacturing technology can provide.

Why attend?

  • ‘Industrie 4.0’, often described as “The Rise of The Machines”, provides operations, productions, engineering, material handlers and supply chain professionals with fundamental changes in their work. Attend this event to understand how the unification of plant machinery with warehousing systems and productions facilities in the shape of Cyber-Physical Systems will affect tomorrow’s factory, today.
  • With embedded sensors costing less than $1 and falling, the expanse of SMART products is limited only by our own imagination. The time has now arrived in which we have the ability to provide real-time data and diagnostics, to create products that will have a genuinely profound effect on our daily life.
  • Three quarters of C-suite business leaders are actively researching opportunities created by the Internet of Things* The Manufacturer invites you to take your seat at this conference to gather insights and ideas on how best you can leverage the opportunities happening within the next industrial revolution.
  • The Internet of Things (IoT) has reached its tipping point and has become a major accelerator for innovation in all industries. Attend this event to hear how the IoT has developed innovations such as graphene.
  • Such advances also face obstacles and challenges for UK manufacturers. The skill set and competences of future manufacturers will be significantly different than today’s engineer.

Who should attend?

Manufacturing and business leaders
will gain insights into the technological advances that will affect the entire value chain, from supply chain, production though to after sales services.

Operations, production and quality professionals
will gain insights into the changes that will happen on the factory floor as more flexible and efficiency practices and models are introduced.

Innovation & Product development professionals
who want to know the methods and processes of the future that will reduce risk and increase speed to market.

Industry 4.0 – A Revolution?

Simon Keogh, Business Manager - Automation Systems, Siemens

The combination of active manufacturing support schemes from Government and key automation technology developments could underpin efforts to boost high-value and flexible manufacturing and help re-boot the nation's industrial sectors.  Simon Keogh, Automation Manager at Siemens Industry, has argued that greater industrial technology awareness and deployment are required if the country is to reach the productivity levels necessary to maintain or expand its manufacturing footprint.  He explores some of the automation technology trends currently impacting manufacturing, and touches on the next predicted productivity leap - a fourth industrial revolution now referred to as Industry 4.0.

Information x Focus x Action = Results

David Evanson, Market Development Manager, OptimumFX

The quality and availability of your information, the level and frequency of focus you apply to it, and the quantity and effectiveness of the actions you take is what is getting you your current result. A change to any of these elements will change your results.

Great quality information is the key enabler for effective decision-making and action. It is the consistent application of all three elements that delivers significant improvement.

In this session, David will discuss:

  • A powerful methodology for delivering consistent manufacturing improvement
  • Using technology to turn Big Data into meaningful intelligence, ensure consistent application, track engagement, and recognise effectiveness
