    Presentation Title:

    The New World of Work – How digitisation and mobile technology are changing our manufacturing environment

    Presentation Synopsis:

    With currently available technology there are endless possibilities to revolutionise the manufacturing environment.  From operating an entire production plant from a mobile device to measuring everything that moves (and everything that doesn’t) it can be difficult to know which technologies will add value and where.  At SABMiller we have trialled mobile technology with excellent results and developed a vision for the new world of work.
