Manufacturing industry gets ready for Digital Manufacturing Africa 2019

On the 27th of November 2019, IT News Africa is set to host the Digital Manufacturing Africa summit at the Altron Conference Centre in Midrand.

On the 27th of November 2019, IT News Africa is set to host the Digital Manufacturing Africa summit at the Altron Conference Centre in Midrand. Ai, IIOT and Automation are changing the face of manufacturing as we know it, placing digitization at the top of every CxO’s agenda.

On the 27th of November 2019, IT News Africa is set to host the Digital Manufacturing Africa summit at the Altron Conference Centre in Midrand.

In the current economic climate adopting new radical approaches to digital transformation in manufacturing is critical in order to stay competitive. Studies show that the adoption of new technologies such as IIOT, Ai, automation, analytics and cloud has been slow in the manufacturing industry, where a mindset shift needs to happen in order to boost efficiency and product quality and reduce operational costs. This needs to be a coordinated, strategic effort to increase revenue and stave off the competition.

Digital Manufacturing Africa 2019 will unpack the importance and benefits of implementing new technologies and methodologies in manufacturing. This event will examine how manufacturers can migrate from complex legacy systems and digitally transform their operations in order to improve efficiency and maximize profits. It will also discuss how companies can help their employees and stakeholders embrace digitization in order to enhance productivity both on the factory floor and in the back office. Discussions will look into how automation if implemented intelligently can increase accuracy, product quality and reduce costs.

Digital Manufacturing Africa 2019 is designed for manufacturing executives and factory heads interested in integrating/expanding Machine Learning, AI and IoT technology into their automation or manufacturing systems. Presentations and panel discussions will discuss return on investments, case studies, strategies for integration, technology and manufacturing trends.

The conference will provide opportunities to network with Factory Automation, AI and Machine Learning experts, as well as local and international manufacturers who have already started using smart manufacturing solutions.
