Volume 8

Letter from the Executive General Manager

Welcome to the eighth edition of ‘insight’! For some time now Industry 4.0, the Industrial Internet of Things and the factory of the future have all been hot topics for Australian manufacturers.

The immediate challenge is understanding how an investment into equipping a smart factory translates into justifiable ROI. From a marking and coding perspective, it can provide full visibility over a production line to a user located anywhere in the world. It can transmit live data on consumable levels, preventing unscheduled downtime from machines running out of consumables. It can monitor wear and tear on components, and also provide real time OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) data. These factors all adding up to the virtual elimination of unplanned downtime, which has a very real benefit to the bottom line.

We’ve shared some information below on the role Industry 4.0 and IIoT has in revolutionising the supply chain, and the very real benefits for Australian manufacturers. I hope that you find these resources of value – and we welcome the opportunity to discuss these topics further with you.

Best regards,
