Our CEO Ruth Kearney presented ‘Toolkits for Smart Manufacturing’ to the industry cohort taking the ‘Certificate in Leadership Digitalisation of Manufacturing’. She shared core aspects of adopting tools to acceleration digitalisation and gave insights into customer examples from Ireland and the UK including Midland Steel and TMD Technologies.
The course is one of the first of its kind designed for the manufacturing sector and run by a partnership between the Technological University of the Shannon: Midlands Midwest and the Irish Digital Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing (IDEAM) Cluster.

The programme demonstrates through practical examples the value and potential that digitalisation brings to manufacturing and provides leaders with the knowledge to accelerate this within their organisation. The course aims to better equip engineers and managers to drive smarter and greener production lines. This is a hot topic within manufacturing and comes as big companies like Microsoft release their annual sustainability report and openly advocate greater sustainability from a cloud services point of view.
