Bossard Australia presents new Industry 4.0 approach to prepare manufacturers for Smart Factory Logistics at National Manufacturing Week 2018 


Following on from a hugely successful Melbourne event in 2017 which attracted more than 10,000 attendees, National Manufacturing Week 2018 will feature more than 200 exhibitors and 40 manufacturing industry experts as part of the conference program. NMW 2018 is once again set to be the manufacturing event of the year.

As part of the Industry 4.0 Theatre, Jeff Birkett, General Manager of Bossard Australia, will present a new Industry 4.0 approach to prepare manufacturers for Smart Factory Logistics, with a particular focus on automation and data exchange.

Bossard has a long 187-year history supporting the manufacturing industry. It is particularly proud of the last 16 years where its Smart Factory Logistics (SFL) systems have been implemented by major global manufacturers and innovators.

Bossard’s Smart Factory Logistics system capture small part consumption data and provides real-time information via its Automated Remote Inventory Management System (ARIMS) dashboard, such as automated SmartBins or informative Smart Labels.

This technology provides a seamless and reliable supply chain performance, reduces the total cost of operations and increases time spent on business growth and investment. It will also allow smaller companies to compete alongside entrenched industry leaders across the globe.   

During the session, Jeff will explore the world of Industry 4.0, explain how Bossard has been able to use this approach to stay ahead of the curve, and what Australian manufacturers can expect from this exciting new industry change.

Jeff has a wealth of knowledge built from more than 25 years’ experience in engineering and supplying component parts to the manufacturing industry and understands the day-to-day frustrations of manufacturers grappling with forecasting, stock-outs and stock visibility.
