SIRF Roundtables VICTAS presents

VICTAS IMRt Automation Roundtable - Launceston Country Club

A Roundtable presented by SIRF Roundtables Victoria and Tasmania

Automation Roundtable - Launceston Country Club

Industrial automation is progressing at a furious pace with not only what is increasingly possible but available in options to support business appetite for greater capability, better productivity and further improvements in safety, quality and cost. This leaves those in the Automation space with a bewildering array of technologies to work with, interact, integrate in with legacy systems to support the growing business needs to be more competitive.

To support businesses, including with more traditional approaches to Automation, those in the Automation space have the exciting prospects of Smarter factories utilising Industry 4.0, Artificial Intelligence, Industrial Internet Of Things, Big Data, Clouds and Cloud networks and opportunities to further harness the power of Modelling, Simulation, Visualisation, and Immersion with tools such as Digital Twin, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality.

While all these prospects can be quite exciting, it can also be quite challenging for those in Automation roles, not only in the integrating and interfacing between all these systems, but also into what legacy systems exist and to match business expectations and including various change aspects. These systems can also tend to throw up concerns for cybersecurity and also how parts, knowledge, training, support and obsolescence are managed -often requiring a strategic approach.

This roundtable is a chance to learn and share on Automation. A chance to share best practice with others and also learn from others. The subjects cover anything related to Automation including technologies involved, and challenges around implementing, managing and supporting aspects around these.

Come along and be part of what will be a great event. This is an opportunity to hear about Automation and relevant aspects, network with your peers and find out what others in the best practice and beyond space are doing.
