Digital Manufacturing Light Workshop

Digital Manufacturing Light Workshop

REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED - Learn about the principles of light digital manufacturing and share your industry insights for Auckland's manufacturing SME's. 

Tuesday 31 May - 12:30pm to 4:30pm - EMEX 2022 - Auckland Showgrounds

We invite you to learn about the light digital manufacturing approach and be a part of the development of an exciting new initiative for New Zealand’s manufacturing industry.

The DM Light approach supports manufacturing SMEs to take their first steps towards digital transformation by identifying and developing key supporting digital technologies at a fraction of the cost and risk of traditional approaches.

Join 15 other companies like yours from across Tāmaki Makaurau for a half day research workshop about DM Light at EMEX led by experts from the University of Auckland Faculty of Engineering.

You will learn about the principles of light digital manufacturing and will be able to share your industry insights on what is most important for Auckland's manufacturing SMEs as the University of Auckland team develop a DM Light methodology for our region and New Zealand. By being involved in the program, you’ll also have an opportunity to work on your own business priorities in the field, which could get included in the program.

As the University of Auckland develops a DM Light pilot program, you will be able to stay in touch with progress, hear about example applications and be first in line to access the low cost, low-risk solutions as they are developed.

The research workshop is sponsored by Auckland Unlimited, supported by XPO Exhibitions, and will be led by University of Auckland Faculty of Engineering practitioners with deep knowledge in the field:

• Prof Xun Xu, Head of Laboratory for Industry 4.0 Smart Manufacturing Systems (LISMS) at the UoA

• Dr. Jan Polzer, Senior Lecturer, UoA, specialist in Process Optimisation and Digital Twins

• Andrew Gill, Managing Director at The Consulting Partnership, and Industrial Associate at the University of Cambridge
