About this talk

Sempai's Digital Manufacturing journey has spanned Germany, Japan, the US & the UK, bridging the gap in understanding between Industry 4.0 vendors and their manufacturing customers.

From the last 2 years advising clients on the possibilities for Digital Manufacturing to add value, 6 common themes that can make or break the relationship have emerged.

Whether it's Cobots, Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Eye Tracking, 360 degree factory laser mapping or low-code/no code, these 6 practical tips apply equally.

This plain speaking example-heavy session is about developing a stronger relationship, more quickly, between Vendors and the Manufacturing clients they seek to serve.
