Welcome

Let's make it about continuous improvement

As UK manufacturers, large or small, process or discrete, we need to become more competitive. Whether it's to compete on a global stage, to bring customisation at speed or to be ultra-responsive to your customer when and where it's needed. To do this we need to transform.  The reality is that digital technology is going to create the most significant and long term productivity improvements that will allow this transformation to unfold.

 

Digital transformation is a journey of continuous improvement.  That’s what we’ve learned; from experience with our customers and partners. A journey in which every step you take counts; in which the outcome of each step you take determines where you go next and ultimately, your ability to compete.

 

At our 2019 flagship event, you can learn what these continuous improvement steps could look like for your business and value chain.

Getting the physical and virtual worlds talking with the Digital Twin

The digital twin is the precise virtual model of a product or a production plant. It displays their development throughout the entire lifecycle and allows operators to predict behavior, optimising performance, and incorporating insights from previous design and production experiences. At Siemens the digital twin consists of three forms: the digital twin of the product, the digital twin of production, and the digital twin of the performance.

Return on investment

Traditionally, manufacturers have paid their suppliers for products or services. But in an outcome-based world, suppliers get paid based on results, minimising the financial risk for manufacturers.  An outcome-based relationship helps you build a sustainable business and the reccomendations will fit with your unique challenge and ultimately have a financial benefit.

Skills for the future

Digital factories naturally demand new skills, but that doesn't always mean new people. Encouraging people to lead the change – and supporting them along the way – is critical. Dame Judith Hackitt, Chair of EEF, the Manufacturers Association, talks on a recent Digital Talks podcast about how upskilling can help manufacturers transform.
