About The Event
IMS ManuVation 4.0 Workshop and World Manufacturing Forum Regional Event
Through its partners, the IMS ManuVation project provides workshops to help companies understand advanced manufacturing technologies, how they help improve processes, and find inexpensive solutions for integration. This is particularly helpful to Small-to Medium Sized enterprises and can also be helpful to supply chains of large companies. The workshop is intended to help companies find a pathway to low-cost solutions toward advanced manufacturing technologies including sharing best practices, forming small projects, and other follow-on activities. Participants should leave the workshop with a better understanding of what it can do to remain competitive in the next ten years by up-skilling its workforce and enhancing manufacturing capabilities.
Following a brief survey of registered participants, IMS will customize the workshop to topics selected from survey respondents to insure the workshop is relevant to their business challenges. The workshop methodology allows industry to speak to industry about business issues and potential technological solutions.
