SRPe Conference - Digital Manufacturing Demystified for SMEs 23 May 2017
The Scottish Research Partnership in Engineering (SRPe) will host a one day intensive conference and workshop aimed at demystifying digital manufacturing and evaluating the implications for SMEs.
Manufacturing companies are continually bombarded with terms such as the fourth industrial revolution, industry 4.0, digital manufacturing, smart manfuacturing, cloud manufacturing and the internet of things.
The conference will break through the hype to describe and demonstrate the technologies, which are driving digital manufacturing. Affecting all manufacturing sectors, you will see how these technologies will impact and transform your business in the short and medium term.
Over the course of the day there will be cutting edge presentations, guided demonstrators and industrial and university partner demonstrators.
