Keynote – Getting Results with Simple and Pragmatic IoT

Engineers have always found ways of finding out what's happening with their equipment - maybe it's a screwdriver held against a noisy bearing, feeling the motor cage temperature with your hand and using a tongue tester to check electric current. No matter how much complex analytics equipment is available, the fundamental physical properties of equipment will never change. This presentation explains how you can use relatively simple, inexpensive IoT based solutions to capture temperature, electrical current and vibration data common to most manufacturing equipment.

Keynote – Operations 4.0: The Next Generation of Operational Excellence

Manufacturing sits at the epicentre of Industry 4.0. The second wave of Industry 4.0 introduces a new era of Operational Excellence that transforms the design, manufacture, operation and service of products and production systems. Connectivity and interactions between parts, machines, and people deliver a step change in productivity and allow for new levels of mass customisation. Henrik, who is referred to as the ‘Father of Industry 4.0’ and who was the mastermind behind Germany’s digital industrial strategy, will discuss how the impact that this new era of operational excellence will have on the competitive landscape of the manufacturing industry.

Keynote: How to Fish (in a Sea of Process Data)

Many manufacturers collect vast amounts of data from their processes, but are hard-pressed to use that data to create value. Opportunities to improve a process can be found using very simple techniques. Graham will be discussing his experience in this area.
