Digital transformation is key to future success.
In manufacturing, the Smart Factory is the ultimate expression of digital transformation: created using new production technologies that enable collaboration between suppliers, customers, operators, machines and tools, it has adequate IT infrastructures and uses sustainable energy. Effective, balanced digital transformation allows a company to improve as technology, knowledge and capability improves and suits its context. The 2019 CAE Exhibition, building on 35 years of tradition, but now expanded to accommodate the requests of the wider engineering and industrial community, will showcase the vast gamut of technologies and services enabling the digitization of industrial processes for Industry 4.0 across the nine enabling technologies. It will also illustrate how engineering simulation dovetails with these technologies and to industrial processes where it plays a key role.
