To help us look into the future state of Australia’s manufacturing industry, David Chuter, CEO and Manager of the Innovative Manufacturing CRC (IMCRC), joins our webinar panel to share key findings from the futuremap® workshops. Full of practical advice, David will reveal how manufacturers enabled by digital technologies and an uptake of Industry 4.0 are innovating and securing future success.
David will also be joined by Eloise Roberts, Director of Advisory, Change, and Training at Simplus, and Imran Khan, Manufacturing Industry Go-To-Market Director at Salesforce. Together they will share their insights from working with Australian manufacturers adopting digital technology.
Our experts will also unpack how the current pandemic has impacted the Fourth Industrial Revolution—otherwise known as Industry 4.0—and what this means for manufacturers and their uptake of digital manufacturing technologies and servitization to remain competitive.
