This conference is designed as an invitation-only information sharing forum and an intimate networking platform for key executives from the Turkish manufacturing industry.

Digital factories are no longer a fiction but a reality. Concepts like digitalization, Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing have been gaining traction in Turkey, disrupting the traditional approach. Despite the ongoing unfavorable conditions in the country, many Turkey - based manufacturers have been desperately looking for tools to increase effectiveness and automation. Customers require fast delivery of top quality products, while manufacturers strive to operate at minimal costs. The focus is therefore on how to increase production and profitability volumes with the existing technical and human resources.

These pressing issues are driven by increasingly demanding customers, forcing managers to implement new technologies and innovate. How to successfully implement digital technologies? How to effectively collect data and, most importantly, how to analyze and leverage them?

Key Topics:
• Customer Experience: Personalization and finding individualized value proposition
• Direct-to-Consumer and Mass Customization: 90% growth in the future coming from D2C
• Innovation Platforms: New product introduction escalates as manufacturers move to information-based services
• Industry Collaborative Clouds: An enabler of new business models
• Networked Manufacturing: Effectivity, costs and logistics optimisation
• Digital, resilient, lean: Managing the smart factory of tomorrow
• The augmented worker: Superheros on the shopfloor
• “Thinking” Supply Chain: Connected, cognitive, comprehensive, collaborative, cyber-aware
