While IIoT has witnessed tremendous enthusiasm around it, the high roll-out cost has been a limiting factor, which has prevented it from becoming mainstream. However, with the arrival of 5G resulting in better battery life, enhanced capacity and bandwidth, it promises to act as an enabler for IIoT. In this panel, we discuss how IIoT can act as the boost that your business needs.

New technologies like mobile communications, internet of things, robotics and advancement in information technology have led to the advent of the fourth industrial revolution. As per recently published reports, businesses with better digital maturity levels are upto 60 percent more likely to enjoy high sales growth. The presentation will focus on how manufacturers can take advantage of latest technologies and transform their businesses. Would you want to stay ahead of the curve or risk being left behind?

Over the past few years, AI has revolutionized the manufacturing industry and it is estimated that businesses that deploy AI in their processes would be able to improve their productivity by up to 50 percent within the next two decades. However, the rate of adoption is low and companies still rely on operator expertise and manual inspections. In a world where increasing productivity while reducing emissions are the buzzwords, manufacturers must find new and innovative was to improve how they operate and increase productivity. The case study would outline why and how businesses must adopt artificial intelligence to smarten their manufacturing processes.

With technology overtaking most steps of the manufacturing process, it has created significant gaps in the knowhow of the existing workforce. Besides, generation z thinks and learns in a different way than what has been taught during traditional training sessions. The need of the hour is to adapt newer ways of skills enhancement like gamification and 3D simulation in order to bridge the skills gap and disrupt the workplace. Are you ready for the next gen?

Global spending on IIoT platforms for manufacturing is predicted to grow from $1.67B in 2018 to $12.44B in 2024. Internet of Things, which started with the tracking of inventory in real time, has now turned into Industrial Internet of Things, encompassing the entire manufacturing operations process. However, what sounds like a complicated and daunting process does not necessarily have to be complicated. In this session, learn how to deploy a successful IIOT strategy for your manufacturing, that derives better efficiencies and measurable returns for the business.

Asia is home to some of the world’s biggest manufacturing powers like India and China. Moreover, the manufacturing industry in Bangladesh is flourishing rapidly, which has further increased the competition. With low labour costs driving production in some of its neighbouring countries, the way ahead for the Sri Lankan manufacturing industry is to become automated in order to compete with its neighbours. The session explores a step by step approach on how Sri Lanka can power its way towards becoming a regional manufacturing power house.

With new technology coming out and so many companies turning toward additive manufacturing in recent years, more and more advantages are being revealed on a regular basis. However, while organizations have deployed it in some high-profile use cases, widespread adoption is still not prevalent. The presentation builds a case for the use of additive manufacturing, why manufacturers should start adoption, and how early adopters can reap tremendous benefits like reduction in waste production, saving energy costs, and achieving better quality.

In today’s interconnected world, where word about a brand or product spreads fast, delivering quality products to your users is absolutely vital. Even a minor flaw can have catastrophic consequences and dampen the hard-earned reputation of a company. Although maintaining quality is not easy, but autonomous quality control technologies like big data and machine learning can help you achieve this seemingly imposing task. Learn how in this session with the help of real world examples.

With customers becoming more and more demanding about what they want and how they want it, customization in manufacturing has become vital for the success of a business. However, digitizing your processes in order to satiate the demand might result in increased costs in the short run. But, is the investment in customization worth it? The panel discussion tries to answer this vital question.

According to a recent research report, less than one in 10 employees are ‘engaged’ in their jobs. Gamification in HR can make employees more engaged and help in important HR functions like recruitment, training & development as well as retention strategies. Implement the power of gamification within your HR processes and reap benefits like:
Cultivate corporate culture and retain valued employees
Incentivize paperwork and other administrative requirements
Map your employees’ path to career success
Understand the benefits of using gamification to upscale your HR functions

Artificial intelligence has re-positioned HR to the front lines as a driver of today’s increasingly demanding talent agenda.

Industry 4.0 is as much about the humans in your business as it is about the machines. One of the most common mistakes that business owners do is not understanding how to connect the people to their plan. The presentation will discuss the importance of the human element when adopting industry 4.0 and how to avoid the most common mistakes during the process.

With the advent of IIoT, a critical challenge that manufacturers have to deal with is to achieve predictive maintenance. While the advantage of predictive maintenance cannot be undermined, most manufacturers seem to be struggling with achieving predictive maintenance. When predictive maintenance is working effectively, maintenance is only performed on machines when it is required, or just before failure is likely to occur, which brings several cost savings. In this session, we take a look at how to achieve predictive maintenance effectively and thus successfully implement industry 4.0

The first step is often the hardest. Robotics has quickly become the heart of lean manufacturing and this presentation shall explore how to get started with implementing robotics or automation within your manufacturing processes. We shall explore robotics based automation, calculating RoI of your automation implementation, and common mistakes made during robotics implementation. The session would take a discussion based approach to answer some of your most pressing challenges.

With competition increasing at a swift pace, manufacturers are turning towards technology to improve yields and augment run times. One of the main benefits of robotic machine tending is the drastically improved uptime when compared to manual loading and unloading. This gain in uptime leads to major productivity gains by boosting throughput. The session will cite real life examples of how robotic machine tending has transformed the manufacturing industry.

The panel would relook at the key discussion points from the two days of the conference and try to decipher how the manufacturing industry in Sri Lanka is currently shaping up. The panelists would also put forward their suggestions on the best course of action to promote and propagate the use of manufacturing technologies in the country.
