Industry 4.0: Productivity and Innovation in Manufacturing

Download PROD Brochure

Improving productivity is the only sure way of increasing the size of the 'cake' we all want to share. Yet, though governments -and organisations - have begun to talk about productivity and productivity improvement, we seem to see little progress 'on the ground'. This event sets the agenda for the future of productivity development - for all key stakeholders.

This is designed to be an interactive discussion and we invite you to join us and participate in the discussions so that we get a full set of views on these important topics, helping build further trade, greater organizational capacity and long-term sustainable productivity growth.

The first theme investigates the concept of productivity and innovation as they relate to issues of quality and customer service by introduction of 'top-line productivity’, to reflect the need to prioritise the top line of the productivity ratio (by adding more value rather than the bottom line (by reducing resource inputs). The second theme demonstrates that business performance and top-line productivity, in particular can be measured- an important component of effective management. The third theme looks at productivity improvement from the 'supply side' - infrastructure development, potential clusters for productivity, together with specific productivity improvement approaches. The fourth theme discusses trade, focusing on sustainable approaches to trade development. Finally, the fifth theme introduces the concept of top-line productivity improvement programmes, through which productivity improvement can be addressed on a continual basis throughout an entire organisation, as well as regionally and nationally.

The Indian Technology Congress is aimed at the wide audience. This moves from a conceptual framework to detailed action plans. This is aimed at businesses and organisations who want to explore the nature of productivity and innovation to relate productivity improvements and alternative business strategies. Each theme finishes with a set of keynote speakers to emphasize the main discussions of the theme and provide a feedback. The event is also suitable for, and appropriate to, practitioners and others who want to improve productivity within their own organisation.
