CAPTAINS DEBATE:
The Brave New world of Manufacturing

How Belgian manufacturing companies are constantly and agilely adapting in this challenging, social, technological and geopolitical new world. Pandemics, supply-chain disruptions, resource and component scarcity, war, climate and sustainability, inflation, war on talent are the ingredients that challenge industry and society. What has fundamentally changed, how do we assess these challenges in the medium term, and how do companies shift to optimally manage organisation, processes, customers and employees.

Audience : C-levels, board, management from manufacturing and machine building industries

Thursday 22 September

Manufacturing 4.0 Debate – Closing the loop

Despite the hype surrounding the concept of Manufacturing 4.0, the adaptation of Industry 4.0, IioT, 3D printing, AI-driven design, machine learning and predictive maintenance within Belgian manufacturing SMEs and machine builders is much slower than expected. So what exactly is the problem? Is it a lack of personnel, resources, knowledge, skills, authorities, education, or perhaps a little of each? What can be done today to catch up (Closing the loop)? The panel of experts (competence and training centres, trade press, manufacturing companies) will not hesitate to hit a raw nerve, but will above all explain how we can close this loop. A wealth of highly valuable insights for business leaders and managers who want to take action now or benchmark themselves against their peers in the sector.
