We are delighted to confirm that SC21 Gold Award winner, Wincanton, will be joining us to lead a morning briefing on the theme of digitisation.

Inventory management is a complex business; getting the right part or product to the right place at the right time. Without effective inventory management, the wheels of a project can stop turning.

This process becomes even more challenging in the context of large-scale, long term projects – think the Queen Elizabeth programme or delivery of the A400M - where the design of the asset is evolving along with the availability of component parts.

Inventory can only be effectively managed with full visibility of each and every component. The ability to locate, trace and deliver the product at the right time is critical.

This is where digitisation has a transformative role. In this session we look at how digitising the engineering supply chain is key to keeping major projects on track. We look at the near and next; the technologies and the people making a difference.
