Over three hours this semi-competitive event demonstrates the impact of industry 4.0 solutions first-hand by applying them to our digital factory. Attendees will experience the beginner, intermediate and advanced-level technology solutions that help manufacturers tackle specific pain points across the value chain.

Test your understanding of industry 4.0 solutions and how to apply them to your manufacturing business with our Digital Manufacturing Challenge.

You’ll get hands-on experience with all levels of technology , critically analyse possible ROI and pain points, and leave with a personalised reference pack so, you’re ready to take the next steps in your industry 4.0 journey. 

In this three-hour gamified session, small teams are tasked with using a budget to make the best technology investment decisions for our continuous batch food manufacturing digital factory, before justifying their investment to gain points.
