Event description
The ARM Hub is working with regional Queensland’s businesses to recover and grow post-COVID-19 with free virtual innovation workshops.

About this Event

Here to help industry adopt advanced manufacturing technologies, the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Hub is a not-for-profit company backed by industry, research institutions and government.

The ARM Hub and the Innovative Manufacturing CRC (IMCRC) have partnered to deliver virtual futuremap® workshops and are encouraging small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to participate.

IMCRC’s futuremap® is a business diagnostic tool designed to help deepen participants’ understanding of their business capabilities and what is needed to advance and successfully transform their manufacturing operation. Developed from world best practice in advanced manufacturing adoption and tailored to an Australian business context, the workshops demystify the concept of Industry 4.0, outlining options for potential investments that can future-proof businesses.

Workshop attendees will use futuremap® to assess and map the current state of their business and identify where they can lift their awareness, competitiveness and build resilience against 13 key areas of industrial and advanced manufacturing competitiveness. Attendees will leave the workshop with their personal futuremap, highlighting their aspirations for the next two years.
