Introduction to Industry 4.0 seminars

To introduce concepts of industry 4.0 and its applications, a series of seminars for manufacturers will run across Queensland to highlight the opportunities and challenges that the adoption of emerging technologies in manufacturing presents.

The 2022 Introduction to Industry 4.0 series will focus on decarbonisation of a manufacturing site and how this can be aided through industry 4.0 adoption.


Industry 4.0 masterclasses

The Industry 4.0 masterclasses support businesses to gain a deeper understanding of industry 4.0 concepts and how these can be adopted to improve their business.

The next round of seminars will appear here when available.

Digital Connectivity Program

A program to help manufacturers understand digital connectivity, and its importance, across all areas of their business.

A key element of Industry 4.0 adoption is having a digital strategy and understanding how digital technologies can connect all areas of the business to maximise efficiency and increase productivity and profitability.

Four lunch-time sessions addressing digital connectivity for manufacturers will be delivered online. The program will assist manufacturers to understand digital connectivity, and its importance, across all areas of their business.

Technology in Manufacturing

To raise awareness of new technologies, understanding technology implementation and new jobs available through Industry 4.0, a series of Technology in Manufacturing events will be held around Queensland in 2022.

These half-day events include a showcase and practical demonstration of selected emerging technologies and their applications in manufacturing.

Specialists in the fields of digital twinning, automation, mixed and virtual reality, and data automation will discuss and demonstrate applications of these technologies within the manufacturing industry.
