Industry 4 Event

Date: 26/01/2022
Time: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Location: Palletower (GB) Ltd, Dane Road Industrial Estate, Dane Road, Sale, Cheshire M33 7BH

Ian Tait will take the group through the Palletower journey so far into digitalization, transitioning from paper-based count recording and subsequent data entry, through to capturing the count data digitally at source. This has been achieved using tools available from the Microsoft Power Platform, for example, the custom-built Power App for data capture, storage of count data in SharePoint Lists, as well as data modelling in Power BI.

Ian will show how this data has been collated together for count reconciliation and report visualisation in Power BI. He will also give examples where these applications have been used in other areas of the business, including the monitoring of daily cage output, data capture with barcode scanning, and live reporting including cloud monitoring.

Attend this free peer group event for SME manufacturers, where we will be sharing knowledge with others in similar roles to you on Industry 4.0 type technologies and digitisation. The day will cover:

  • A case study of an SME manufacturer that is benefiting from Industry 4.0.
  • Sharing of simple technologies that are low cost and easy to implement.
  • Discussion on current Industry 4.0 adoption challenges.

The group will be facilitated by Mark Stone, who has a wide portfolio of experience in running Manufacturing & Engineering Departments in large and SME manufacturing environments. He also has first-hand experience of applying a lot of the Industry 4.0 type technologies with his own teams in his career.
