Supply Chain Workshops
The ISCF Manufacturing Made Smarter Challenge aims to inspire digital technology innovation to deliver a connected, resilient and agile industrial landscape – resulting in a significantly more productive and environmentally sustainable UK manufacturing sector. Given the recent disruptions and challenges, it is vital we innovate to create a more efficient, productive, flexible, resilient and sustainable UK manufacturing supply chain.
Through the challenge’s upcoming digital supply chain competitions, UK businesses can apply for a share of funding for feasibility studies and/or industrial research projects to research and develop innovative digital solutions to enable integration and optimisation of manufacturing supply chains to achieve these goals.
We are running a series of workshops in partnership with Innovate UK to:
- Explore opportunities for using digital solutions to improve and re-engineer existing manufacturing supply chains
- Explore opportunities for using digital solutions to design new supply chain solutions
- Help collaborators develop their applications for the Manufacturing Made Smarter supply chain competition.
10th July : Pharma 10:00 – 12:30
This workshop will look at supply chain challenges and opportunities for supply chain design, integration and optimisation within the pharmaceutical sector.
16th July : General. 10:00 – 12:30
Organisations operating in any manufacturing sectors could join this workshop to get a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing supply chain design, integration and optimisation within manufacturing.
21st July : Food & Drink : 10:00 – 12:30
This workshop will look at supply chain challenges and opportunities for supply chain design, integration and optimisation within the food and drink sector.
31st July : Aerospace & Automotive : 10:00 – 12:30
This workshop will look at supply chain challenges and opportunities for supply chain design, integration and optimisation within the aerospace and automotive sector.
The competition is planned to be launched on the 6th July. Further details will be supplied in the briefing webinar on 14th July. To attend the briefing, register here.
