What is Industry 4.0 and how can it assist the global steel industry in its quest for greater efficiencies? Two questions, among many others, that will be answered by the experts at the Future Steel Forum in Warsaw in June 2017.
Taking place on the 14-15 June 2017 at The Sheraton Warsaw Hotel, the Future Steel Forum is a live discussion of the issues surrounding Industry 4.0 or ‘smart manufacturing’ and will endeavour to cover all bases, including the all-important subject of cyber security, the role of human beings in the factory of the future, how to survive a cyber attack and the all-important process safety and control.
Speakers from academia, the steel industry and the world of steel production technology will explain the key concepts behind the digitalisation of steel manufacturing. Myths will be exploded, ideas challenged and terminology explained.
The Future Steel Forum will look at how innovative technology can be brought together with the sole intention of revolutionising the way steel is made.
The conference fee includes a 2-day conference programme, refreshments, a networking lunch and conference proceedings. Delegate registration fees for this conference are as follows:
Please note: the conference fees will also be subject to value added tax where applicable.
"The goal of Industry 4.0 is the digital penetration of industrial business fields in order to improve the efficiency of production processes. People, machines and manufactured parts that are involved in this process all become interlinked. An additional factor apart from this interconnection is artificial intelligence. This allows intelligent networks to be created within which machines will learn and optimise themselves in the future. Humans participate in these networks. This allows them to access information about their machines and parts regardless of time and location, assess situations, and intervene where necessary."
