Smart Manufacturing Summit

Smart Manufacturing Summit

13-14 February 2020

Frankfurt, Germany


Smart factories are fast becoming mainstream in manufacturing, offering a new level of efficiency and productivity to those that invest in them. Factories are no longer simply a mass of machinery operating as a series of production lines. Instead, manufacturing executives and engineers manage interconnected networks of moving parts, that can be trained and fine-tuned to optimise performance. New technologies such as big data, prognostics, machine learning and the cloud have changed the game when it comes to factory efficiency and maintenance. They are enabling manufacturers to proactively manage and improve the performance of these environments, with relatively low levels of investment.

Our Smart Manufacturing Summit will gather together, C-level manufacturing professionals across variety of industries such as: Automobile, Engineering, Chemicals, Electrical & Electronic, Energy, Heavy Engineering, Machinery & Equipment to discuss importance of control shop floor operations, reducing manufacturing costs, reducing manufacturing cycle time, better understanding of equipment utilization, enabling paperless manufacturing and cover innovative trends of manufacturing Industry 4.0
