Modernising Asia's manufacturing landscape: Key considerations & actions

Most small to medium size Asia manufacturing companies have lesser financial capabilities as compared to their peers, thus any upgrading decisions require serious consideration. This panel will address some of the key issues manufacturers need to consider before taking the step to adopt modern techniques in their new and existing facilities. Key topics include:
  • What are the key considerations when engaging a vendor specialised in automation and 3D?
  • How do manufacturers maximise their ROI from upgrading existing facilities?
  • Understanding perspective of SMEs and how to build an ecosystem to support the landscape
  • Strategies required to move away from the mind-set of being a “just-another-contractor” to a value-adding, “co-developer”?

It all starts with data: How can you make yours work for you?

Data are useful only if they can be used to support enterprise decisions and solve business problems. But in reality, a lot of the data are not fully utilised in organisations. With lots of noise and concerns over the quality of data, sifting through the data to extract valuable information has remained a major challenge. There is also an infinite number of ways in which the data can be combined, compared and analysed to extract useful patterns and business insights. So, how do major organisations use data and analytics to inform strategic and operational decisions? This closing keynote provides insights into the key considerations for large multinational enterprises to manage data and build analytics capability.
