As manufacturers digitize their operations, they must develop a forward-thinking mindset to identify, respond, and overcome current challenges.

 Whilst industry 4.0 technologies have rapidly progressed, manufacturing experts are now questioning if the industry is evolving at the pace expected. Common concerns include implementing technology alongside legacy equipment, the current labour skills gap and third-party security risks.

Join industry experts in October as they collaboratively discuss and share key tactics to overcome these unique challenges and accelerate automation across the industry.
