The Business of the Future

Join us for our second Design, Simulation & Metrology SIG Event.

With a focus on ‘The business of the Future’, our second Design, Simulation & Metrology special interest group will be taking a look at technologies and business processes that make your business more efficient and effective in an ever changing world. Our agenda is going to be packed full of revolutionary technology to help propel you into Industry 4.0.

We are delighted to confirm that Joel Crook and James Hooper will be with us from Google. They will share their expertise in the Manufacturing and Technology sectors looking at the impact of machine learning on business.

We also welcome Stephen Fletcher from Theorem to highlight the advantages of utilising existing 3D CAD data in a VR environment. Showcasing the benefits of this for design reviews, product visualisation, work instructions and even documentation and training, this presentation will introduce you to the next step in engineering design.

Richard White from Hexagon MSC Software will join us to talk about the technical benefits and application of digital twinning, sharing how this can bring increased reliability, performance and productivity to manufacturing processes.

Roger Peacock from Velocity will be focusing on Robotic Process Automation (RPA), explaining how co-bots can help remove the tedious tasks from your people so they can focus on adding the value you need.

Niall Johanson of Charpak will share how to establish a circular economy for your business so you can reap the long-term benefits. Their insights will show how this can help you reduce costs and stabilise your supply chains over the long term, to help reduce manufacturing and running costs.

Furthermore, Stefan Haase of Whitecap Consulting will be delving into the buzzword, ‘blockchain’, and how this could also bring great benefits to your business.
