While it’s too early to reflect on how you could have minimised the impact of COVID-19 on your supply chain, you can be rest assured that your CEO will want the answer pretty soon. Are you ready for that conversation? 

As we plough through some of the toughest days that supply chains have experienced, we urge you to take an hour out of your busy schedule to attend this webinar which scaffolds Industry 4.0 into bite sized chunks allowing you to start your journey to future proofing your operations without it costing the earth.

Manufacturing is undergoing a transformation across the industrialised world. Manufacturing companies in NSW increasingly focus on high-value and high-skill services, particularly in pre- and post-production processes, such as research and development and design.

However, for many, reducing manufacturing costs seems like fighting a losing battle. With the cost of introducing advanced technologies and automation solutions reducing significantly, how ready is your business to embrace these concepts? Are you looking to reduce costs in desperation? What can you do today to make the most of tomorrow’s Industry 4.0 technology?

Join us as Operational Excellence workshop facilitator Ishan Galapathy leads a valuable Industry 4.0 discussion. This is a must attend webinar for operations managers of manufacturing companies!

What ASCI Members will walk away with:

  1. An understanding of what Industry 4.0 means

  2. An understanding of six areas that a business needs to work on to get the best of technology

  3. A map of your current state and a clear idea of what you need to do next


Julie Lockyer from NSW Treasury will also present the NSW Advanced Manufacturing Industry Development Strategy to demonstrate how manufacturing will be supported on the journey of transformation.
