Why You Should Attend

2nd Annual Manufacturing Operational Efficiency 2016

Australia’s manufacturing competitiveness ranking has declined from 16th to 21st position since 2013, according to the 2016 Global Manufacturing Competitive Index report from Deloitte Global and the US Council on Competitiveness. Profitability within manufacturing industry has declined markedly over the past a number of years. Soaring labour costs, changing market dynamics, more scrutinised regulatory requirements, and Australian dollar volatility have all resulted in it.

Despite challenging times, Australian manufacturers have been prevailling – advancing in automation, managing costs without sacrificing quality and striving for long term sustainability. With technologies creating a highly responsive, innovative and competitive global manufacturing landscape, Australian manufacturing is expecting future consolidation and growth. Marcus Evans Manufacturing Operational Efficiency 2016 is designed to help the practitioners to achieve the goals.  At this two day event, a broad range of topics will be discussed with best practices will be showcased. If you wish to learn and benchmark with some of the most successful industry players on building an organisational system and culture towards Continuous Improvement (CI) and Manufacturing Excellence (MEX); enabling Lean transformation for higher productivity with lower cost; embracing smart manufacturing technologies and data analytics for performance optimisation, this is the event you cannot miss!
