Over the course of 2018 Ideable Solutions has held several breakfasts to share technological space and networking coffee.
This time the Ideable Breakfast on 27th November changes its format to a round table to discuss the situation of our industry in the digital age.
We are celebrating the end of the year for Ideable Breakfasts by changing its format to allow various managers from industrial companies to discuss the reality of the industry and its progress towards digitization.
Is there a 4.0 bubble? Are real savings being made thanks to automation/robotization?
We will try to shed light on the possibilities that technology offers the industry with the help of representatives from the industrial world:
- Elena Guede Vazquez (Plant Manager at Cementos Lemona),
- Xabier Uriagereka Pastor (Innovation Manager at I3S),
- José Ramón Ribate Riaño (Operations Manager at Ilunbe),
- Xabier Sabalza Laskurain (ex-Manager of Industry 4.0 at Lortek),
- Francisco García (Area Manager at GE-Opertek),
- Galder Vizcaya Ugarte (Industrial Manager at ZIV Automation),
- Enrique Paramá (Marketing Manager at Lantek),
- Elias Unzueta Etxeita (Innovation Manager at Petronor).
The round table will be moderated by Luis Blanco Urgoiti (General Secretary of Aveq-Kimika).
As well as the questions posed by the moderator, we also hope that the audience will ask the speakers some questions.
The idea for this session arose from the need to create a space for reflection. It is clear that Digital Transformation is becoming increasingly present throughout our industrial world, but it gives rise to great doubts (speed of advances and extent), as well as inconsistencies between industries, and even within companies in the same industry.
We also hope that this round table will clarify whether it is true that there is no alternative to this technological tsunami which will significantly change the way things are done (new business models). We will even be able to find out about needs in terms of human resource skills/capacities.
This round table will take place the day after Ideable participates with its own stand at “Basque Industry 4.0: Meeting point” organized by SPRI in Bilbao.
Prior to this, on 20th November, Ideable is taking part in another round table, with the industry focussing on ‘Does Digital Transformation Exist?’, organised by the Official Association of Engineering Graduates and Industrial Engineers of Bizkaia to reflect on what Digital Transformation implies for the industry.
Later, on 29th November, Ideable and Alegi Team are then organizing another session with the name ‘Active Ageing and Technology’ to give visibility to the elderly and technology.
This breakfast closes the 2018 Ideable Breakfast programme, in which we have had the chance to involve relevant external stakeholders in the technology adoption process. We have also been able to share concerns with our customers and friends about a constantly and infinitely changing world.
