Prepare your team for the smart factory of the future30 January 2018

There’s plenty of discussion about the future of manufacturing and the digital factory, but what does it mean for companies now and how should manufacturers be developing leadership skills to implement the factory of the future?

Manufacturing Management (formerly Works Management magazine) is launching a campaign to develop and prepare future leaders.

Securing profit and productivity for the future depends not only on investment and implementation of new technologies but it is reliant upon developing today’s leaders to be equipped with the knowledge and tools that will safeguard and secure future success.

As part of a Continuous Improvement series of events, Manufacturing Management is working alongside key partners – Festo, Kronos, Siemens, Werma, and OEEsystems – that share our core vision of preparing leaders for the digital manufacturing age.

Leadership Days have been designed to provide you with a series of events throughout the year with different themes to address your different learning requirements. The first of these new, one day events will provide you, the UK’s manufacturing leaders, with practical, hands-on advice and guidance to prepare your site and workforce for the Smart Factory of the Future.

Join us at JLR’s Castle Bromwich site on 20 March to:
HEAR: from Chris Reeves, director of Consulting Services, Country Digitisation, England, at Cisco, as he provides a high-level presentation on how to prepare your leaders for the Factory of the Future

SEE: a factory tour and learn more about the world-class advanced manufacturing techniques. The world-famous JLR Castle Bromwich plant – home to premium Jaguar models – produces thousands of vehicles per year, and employs over 3,000 employees. You will see how JLR has combined state-of-the-art technology with lean manufacturing techniques, which when combined with investment in the site has led to an increased push for quality and efficiency

DO: a series of hands-on practical workshops from Manufacturing Management Partners – Siemens, Kronos and Festo – to reinforce your learning on topics such as workforce management.

This is a must-attend event for anyone thinking about introducing new technology or preparing their factory and its staff for the future of manufacturing
