Manufacturing Rebooted | Global Business Innovation Conversations 2018

RMIT AND ECP PRESENTS THE SECOND INSTALLMENT OF THE GLOBAL BUSINESS INNOVATION CONVERSATIONS 2018

If you’re in the business of manufacturing or operate within the manufacturing environment, join the conversation and collaborate with innovators, designers, technologists, academics and business experts. Adapt and plan for innovation to thrive in the fourth industrial revolution.

How can manufacturers leverage innovative technologies in the business model context?

 

The development of new technologies is disrupting the traditional business models of manufacturing, opening opportunities to pursue untapped markets, and driving innovation in the area of product development. 

Disruption opens the playing field for start-ups and SME’s, with leading manufacturers equally focused on leveraging technology and business model innovation. The impact of major trends such as additive manufacturing, nanotechnology and the Internet of Things have forced leaders to rethink innovation in manufacturing, redefine functions of their business and revisit business models. 

 

The conversation will explore:

Innovative business models using new technology

Beyond innovation, collaboration and co-creation opportunities

Maximising data exchange to improve services, process systems, supply chains, and how to measure success.
