MODULE 1: THE SMART FACTORY
Transitioning to Industry 4.0 is about so much more than technologies and cost efficiencies. During this webinar, you will get to grips with the framework of how smart factories and smart supply chains integrate.
This module kicks off in Aachen, at the RWTH University. You’ll discover what a smart factory is, what kinds of value it creates and how it can create value. You’ll gain a deep understanding of the stages of development needed to create a smart factory. And you’ll get to see a smart factory in action. During this module in Aachen, you will create part one of your action plan.
To bring your action plan to a higher level, we recommend you to go back to your company and ask feedback of your colleagues. This will be valuable input for the next webinar.
During this webinar you’ll get feedback on the action plan you’ve created so far. Small groups of participants and faculty will act as a critical friend, challenging your plan and helping you to improve.
MODULE 2: THE SMART SUPPLY CHAIN
It’s time to break down barriers and re-imagine your business. You’ll discover how supply chains can become an eco-system. You’ll learn how industrial boundaries are changing and creating new opportunities for growth. During this module, you’ll also visit a factory to see how this is already beginning to happen. You’ll look at the shift you may need to bring about in yourself to become an agent of change in your organisation. Last but not least, you will take charge of the second and last part of your action plan.
As a final closure of your action plan, we advice you to present your action plan to your board. This way you’ll make sure everyone stands behind the plan and you can start make real changes in your organisation.
After you present your action plan to the board of your organisation, we take time to reflect on it with you. It’s all about putting knowledge into action and action into knowledge.
