Why You Should Attend

Moving to Smart Manufacturing: MES, PLM and ERP Integration

This marcus evans event is designed to bring together leading manufacturing experts from a wide range of plants and site across Europe to share quality and in-depth case studies on how to prepare for the evolution to digital manufacturing. Delegates will learn how to achieve optimal productivity levels through improved operational excellence, whilst always meeting customers’ expectations and demands. You will understand both how to dispel concerns surrounding security and data management and overcome barriers to ALM and rapid prototyping; how to exploit 3D printing on a mass production scale and ultimately how to transform your cost centre into a profit centre.

European manufacturers are under huge pressure to be more flexible, productive, energy efficient and innovative. They also need to react on the current market trends: product life cycles are getting shorter and customers increasingly request customized and tailored products fitting their needs. Manufacturing experts need to make sure their production systems are more flexible, integrated, re-usable and cost-efficient.

Failing to invest in smarter technologies would mean that companies would risk losing their competitive advantage and profits. This is why they are now investing in smart manufacturing systems: the information technology (IT) revolution has finally come to factory floors around Europe.
