Published:  20 March, 2019

PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI UK) has recently announced its role as an official supporter of The Smart Industry series of Conferences.

The events, titled: Demystifying the jargon: How to make the digitalisation transition, cover Smart Industry Food & Beverage; Smart Industry Automotive; and Smart Industry Aerospace. The first of these sector specific conferences is due to be held in Birmingham on the 22nd May, focusing on the Food & Beverage Sector. The first event will also run alongside the annual Motion Control Industry Awards.

According to the organiser, DFA Media, the events were launched to "address and unravel the vast array of conflicting information around 4IR, discussing the practicalities, technologies and issues surrounding transition and implementation of digitalisation in manufacturing across key market sectors in clear and concise language."

The conferences’ main aim is to provide a practical, jargon-free opportunity to those starting out on the digital transformation process, to experience a complete smart roadmap, highlighting the incremental stages of the 4IR journey covering all aspect of the digital transformation. This fits in with one of the main aims of PROFINET together with IO-Link, already well accepted as the backbone of Industry 4.0.

The Smart Industry series of Conference are CPD accredited, giving added value to delegates.
