The Implication of Digital Transformation for South African Manufacturers Breakfast Seminar
November 29 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 am
Join us for this Breakfast Seminar on the Implication of Digital Transformation for South African Manufacturers by guest speaker Dr Garth Gaffley. There will be a showcase by SIMTEQ Engineering.
TOPIC: The Implication of Digital Transformation for South African Manufacturers
The introduction of the 4IR technologies that impact Digital Transformation in manufacturing with the implementation of Industry 4.0 is possible through consideration of a technology stack which considers technology improvements since 1994 with the launch of the internet to the present time. This migration is enabled through Cloud capability which negates the size and speed of data (storage and retrieval) and facilitates the employment of data with its analytical insights, facilitating predictive and simulation models.
The Digital fluency and capability of leadership in the manufacturing sector is one of the biggest challenges facing successful implementation of Digital Transformation in Sa manufacturing. Aligned with this reality is the commensurate set of skill level requirements (hard and soft) to keep abreast of the technology improvements that allow migration from Smart Ecosystems to the Super Society. Insights on the implication of Digital Transformation for manufacturing in South Africa are drawn from Doctoral research findings conducted in the SA manufacturing sector over the period 2018 to 2021 and are benchmarked against global best practices.RSVP HERE
