Seminar - Connected Manufacturing

Flemish manufacturing companies are seeing their production become increasingly complex as they switch from mass production to small customised series with high added value and short lead times. This puts productivity under pressure. Fortunately, there are increasingly better solutions for connecting machines, extracting data from them and then using this data to improve production. In addition, companies can further increase their productivity and transparency by integrating their various software applications (ERP/MES/...) with each other in order to seamlessly bring the captured data to the desired processing level.


By attending this seminar, you will gain insights into Connected Manufacturing. You will learn about the challenges and get first-hand experience through 4 business cases from the industry. In addition, you will discover demonstrators from Sirris and Flanders Make who demonstrate connectivity concepts in practice.

Connected Manufacturing

The seminar is organised by Sirris and Flanders Make as part of the COOCK project Connected Manufacturing (HBC.2020.2544). The aim of this project is to make the technological potential of connecting machines and business applications tangible for companies and to let them see how this can be used to increase transparency and productivity.


The seminar is free, to participate you only need to register via the Sirris website.
