What is Smart Manufacturing?

Smart Manufacturing  is the latest paradigm shift in manufacturing in which  information and manufacturing intelligence is used to integrate the demands of the customer throughout the entire manufacturing supply chain. It  integrates information, technology and human ingenuity to revolutionize the way in which  products are invented, manufactured, shipped and sold. Join us in this conference that will give you the general overview of smart manufacturing and the technology trends of  the top industry leaders. From our keynote speakers to panel discussions, you will gain insights on what it takes to thrive in this new paradigm shift in manufacturing through the use of advanced technology. This conference will be of great interest to industrial practitioners, governmental policy makers, TVET trainers and university researchers.
