Last year, CPCA organised an extensive information session on Industry 4.0 and its impact on the Process Industry. Based on the positive feedback, the association is once again offering the process market an opportunity to learn about advanced process manufacturing, but with a more applied approach. The industry has been talking about the theory for the past two years, come and see how companies have now digitalised their process applications.
We have planned a one day symposium that includes two keynote speakers, eight presentations from Process Industry experts on real-life applications within the Process Industry Value Chain and a product exhibit. Topics will include a multitude of Industry 4.0 elements such as Big Data/Analytics, Cloud Computing, Remote Access, IIoT, Cyber Security, Smart Mobility, Virtual/Augmented Reality, Open Communication to name a few.
Hear from Industry leaders Siemens, Festo, Phoenix Contact and Majik on how they assisted their customers on their path to digitalisation.
In addition two keynote speakers have been lined up:
David Gibson, PWC – Industry
Currently working with PWC as a key member of their Industrial Products team, David with a broad background in the Process Industry (Shell and Weston Bakeries) and 25 years of strategy consulting is ideally suited to speak on the current state of Industry 4.0 within the Process Industry and recent changes since he last spoke to our group.
