The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the manufacturing sector profoundly, shaking-up accepted norms and highlighting the need for a comprehensive business continuity plan leveraging advanced automation and digital tools for remote production.
In light of this, IAA held a webinar on 19 January 2021, to bring together industry experts from Insight, Yokogawa, Endress+Hauser, and Mobile Industrial Robots (MIR), to shed greater light on the current crisis and plot a course forward, providing expert opinion on business continuity and building greater resilience in the manufacturing sector.

Insight – Digital Transformation: Trends & Best Practice For Manufacturers
Vijayan Haridas, Practice Lead, Digital Innovation (South Asia), Insight, discusses market and technology trends in digital transformation relevant for manufacturers as well digital transformation best practice.
Yokogawa – Journey Toward Autonomous Operations
Lockdowns and movement restrictions are projected to prolong in many countries before enough people are vaccinated against Covid-19. The ongoing pandemic affects manufacturing industries not only in the operational margin but also towards a strong demand for remote operation.
It has been observed that many business leaders are accelerating more digital solutions and adopting new approaches toward workforce safety and operational excellence. Enquiries for remote and autonomous operation supported by predictive A.I, embedded data analytics and robotics has increased during this period.
Digital transformation (DX) is becoming the journey towards autonomous operations across devices, equipment, business and process systems. Industrial autonomy affects both decision-making processes and physical tasks and will require a range of emerging technologies, strong leadership and agile change management.
Yokogawa took the opportunity to conduct global research across manufacturing industries towards industrial autonomy and digital technologies. In this presentation, Yokogawa will share the findings, challenges and use of proven technologies towards the journey of Autonomous Operations.
Endress+Hauser – Digital Transformation: Step-By-Step To Operational Excellence
Industry 4.0, IIoT, AI – all buzzwords we use in our daily work life. But what does it mean concretely? Here Adrian Stangl, IIoT Business Development Manager S.E.A, Endress+Hauser discusses what a digital ecosystem is and how it can be applied to a plant or manufacturing facility, as well as providing a step by step approach to digital transformation and operational excellence.
Mobile Industrial Robots (MIR) – Supply Chain Resiliency: Challenges And Opportunities
For many organisations, the global pandemic has brought them significant changes in their business operations. As businesses navigate through the long-term effects of this pandemic, this creates an opportunity to re-evaluate and reform their supply chain processes to continually optimise productivity, reduce costs and inefficiencies to remain competitive.
