#hellodigital, An Lochran, 10 Inverness Campus, Inverness

12:00 – 16:30

Hosted by HIE, this event brings together a practical look at what Industry 4.0 means with case studies and advice. Speakers at the event include High-Speed Sustainable Manufacturing Institute (HSSMI), the Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) and Dr Cade Wells of CENSIS.

Creating an IoT security culture (CENSIS)

On the day Cade will look at achieving cybersecurity throughout the manufacturing process, and how this will require both organisational and technological changes. A signature of IoT is pervasive connectivity. Hand in hand should come pervasive security too but less than 20% of businesses deploying IoT today understand the risks and how to manage these. Achieving secure IoT is not business as usual. Instead it is an opportunity for employees to gain new skills, new powers and take on new roles.

Other case studies will look at:

  1. AGM Batteries: The benefits of the use of Virtual Reality as a marketing tool for remote companies, as well as the benefits and applications of circular economy in the supply chain and how this relates to Manufacturing 4.0 principles and techniques.
  2. The Augmented Worker: An introduction to the Innovate UK project which aims to develop software platform which will allow construction companies to push and pull BIM data to and from a range of VR and AR tools. Delivered by David Grant, Digital Manufacturing Engineer and AFRC Project Lead.

There will be two practical sessions:
