Cimlogic raises awareness of the future importance of digital manufacturing at customer conference event

Post by Claire Healey on Wednesday 22nd June



Cimlogic, the experts in Manufacturing Operations Management Solutions successfully hosted their first ever customer conference event at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester on 21st June 2016.

Customer’s from a wide range of sectors including Food and Beverage, Pharmaceutical, Customer Packaged Goods, Animal Nutrition and Petrochemical attended this one-day event, ‘Destination 4.0’ to find out more about the manufacturing industry hot topics and key trends such as; Industry 4.0, The Internet of Things (IoT), Operational Excellence, Smart Manufacturing, and Connected Data, and why these industry terms are becoming increasingly important to the continued success and competitiveness of today’s global manufacturer, in the dawning of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Cimlogic filled a jam-packed agenda with expertly delivered presentations including ‘The next generation of Smart Manufacturing’ and ‘Using Connected data to drive Operational Excellence’, all designed to inspire the audience about the future possibilities, to assist in planning for future needs and to give hints and tips on the industry 4.0 technologies available to them.

Outside the main conference room delegates gathered around a demonstration unit, which collected and displayed real-time production line data. Cimlogic technology partners MAC Solutions and Distec also carried out interesting product demonstrations on their stands.

The Museum of Science and Industry venue was carefully chosen to host the conference as it was perfectly relevant to the Manufacturing industry and describes the industrial revolutions and how it has evolved over the years.  Delegates had free time to visit the many sites and exhibitions within the museum, which included ‘Baby’ – a replica of the first ever programmable computer.

Delegates enjoyed a number of interactive breakout sessions including ‘360 Degree Visibility’, ‘Downtime Data’, and ‘The Connected Value Chain’, where they were presented with hands-on demonstrations and given activities to complete, in order to put the theory they’d learnt in previous presentations into practice.

Mike Hodge, Chief Executive Office at Cimlogic says: “We’d like to thank all our customers for attending our first ever conference, and we hope they took away lots of information and food for thought on some of the topics we covered such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0. The aim of the event was to raise awareness about the latest technologies and tools that can be utilised to future proof the manufacturing operations of tomorrow.

Our in-house experts presented an array of thought leading material to some of the world’s largest manufacturing companies, of which we are very proud to have as our customers. Our customers had the chance to talk to members of our team about their challenges and needs, to network and collaborate with their peers in the industry and share their industry experiences.

It was a very successful day and opened our customer’s eyes to the possibilities of big data and Industry 4.0 technology, and the importance of designing a correct framework in which to implement these things. A quote from Joseph Whitworth was prominently displayed at the museum, ‘You can only make as well as you can measure’, which really encapsulates what we believe in.

We now look forward to supporting our customers on their exciting journey towards ‘Destination 4.0’ and are fully committed to providing the continuous Manufacturing Operations Management Solutions and integrated technology tools needed to help them on their way”.
