Holmes Noble Leadership Dinner: “Automation – Human-Machine Collaboration”

Private Dining at The Manufacturing Centre, Ansty Park, Coventry 05/07/2017

Holmes Noble in conjunction with Mike Wilson, President of the British Automation and Robot Association are hosting a private dinner to discuss ‘”Automation –  Human-Machine Collaboration”. Offering you an opportunity to share opinions and forge new relationships with key decision-makers and influencers from the manufacturing community.

Committed to being thought leaders in the industrial and supply chain space, Holmes Noble’s Partner & Head of Industrial practice, Ben Gilbert and Rachel McGowan-Kemp, Partner and Head of Holmes Noble’s Supply Chain & Support Services practice, have invested time into extensive research into how the new wave of existing but not yet widely deployed technologies will transform global manufacturing and supply chain capabilities in the very near future.

The changing UK landscape is accelerating investment in new technologies, that are more reliable and efficient than ever before, however, investment and implementation bring their own risks!

The dinner discussion will cover the following thought provoking topics –

  • ‘Collaborative Technology’ – People working alongside intelligent robotics
  • ‘Where to Start’ and how to align your automation strategy alongside your business strategy
  • The skills gap
  • Return on investment and funding options
  • Business continuation, programme planning and management up and downstream
  • Head count and managing the culture change
  • Emerging Technology / virtualisation / collaboration between man & machine?
