The digital transformation of manufacturing and manufacturing processes has arrived, and now it’s time to embrace it. Creating smart connected manufacturing with people centred operations will help drive and strengthen Ireland’s global manufacturing competitiveness.

Ibec‘s MedTech Association and Manufacturing sectors are delighted to open bookings for their second Global Manufacturing Conference ‘New Thinking in Enterprise Excellence’ which will take place on 7 June in the Galmont Hotel, Galway.

This conference agenda has been designed specifically by the Operational Excellence and Advanced Manufacturing Working Groups to showcase particular case studies on how traditional manufacturing companies are moving their processes to digital and improving efficiencies through the use of emerging technologies.

Supported by all of Ibec’s manufacturing sectors,  300+ delegates are expected in attendance at what is promised to be an exciting, interactive full-day event, with exhibition stands showcasing best-practice manufacturing, digitalisation of manufacturing, smart technologies, operational excellence and lean processes.

The agenda outlines four sessions throughout the day, each centred on a different theme:
Session 1: Global Manufacturing Competitiveness, trends, including the latest and greatest technologies and where Ireland’s Advanced Manufacturing sits;
Session 2: Manufacturing Leadership and Women in Manufacturing;
Session 3: Smartening up your Manufacturing Processes, including collaborative approaches and new innovations in manufacturing;
Session 4: Advanced Manufacturing – Best Practice Sharing.
