eSMART FACTORY 2022

DECEMBER 14th

Digital Transformation and Hyperautomation

The unique focus of the eSMART Factory Conference 2022, is to create and discover best practices for Digital Transformation and Hyperautomation, to address the very real challenges that manufacturing faces from all that the last two years has thrown at it, but in a way that creates technologies, best practices and solutions that drive unfolding opportunities, taking full advantage of incentives and trends.

Each day as manufacturing operations struggle to start, faced with supply-chain, human resources, security and spiralling inflation, it may not seem obvious, but manufacturing is now in a far better position to know and understand the next business step, to assess its market and meet its manufacturing technologies requirements and goals.

Few manufacturing operations, or their suppliers of materials, automation hardware or software now believe that the industry can go back as they were before the pandemic and other global instability issues. It is a new world that is being painfully created, one focused on reduction of risk, control of dependencies, efficient use of resources, automation and agility to satisfy changing demands and circumstances, as well as Digital  Transformation, a critical part of what we have known as Industry 4.0.

In this conference, we examine the business drivers, hardware and software technologies, that help address immediate concerns, but are sustainable in that they will also deliver success in our new manufacturing paradigm.
