Why You Should Attend

Manufacturing Operational Efficiency

The Australian manufacturing industry is facing its most heightened challenge since the Great Depression. The ever-changing landscape of domestic manufacturing is driven by the volatile dollar, high input prices and soaring labour costs.

With issues associated with government policies, consumer behaviour, environmental restrictions, and international market competition among others, domestic manufacturers need to keep up in order to make themselves relevant in the present marketplace. Unfortunately many challenges are external and cannot be controlled by a manufacturer. However, manufacturers can always take action internally, that is to make necessary changes within their process and operations so as to be world-class and competitive in the harsh global market.

For Australian manufacturing to strive, thrive and stay alive, now is the time to seize the opportunity to reinvigorate the industry, through continuous improvement processes and innovation. At the Manufacturing Operational Efficiency conference, delegates will gain valuable insights into operational process assessment and improvement, cultural variation and technological advancements to achieve long term and productivity leading to profitability.
