The Summit covered the following main topics:

1. Enhance Manufacturing capacity

2. Factory automation

3. Technological Advancements

4. New scientific innovations

5. Research and Development

6. Scalable and sustainable technologies

7. Achieving manufacturing excellence

Mr Ashwani Dubey, Managing Director & CEO, Comau India Pvt Ltd threw light upon the key issues in the sector pertaining to the very high attrition rates and lack of competent and non-availability of skilled manpower. He also focused on the measuring tool ie. Intelligent Quotient to analyse the demographic dividend.

Mr Ramesh C Jain, Past Chairman, CII Haryana State Council & Former Group Vice Chairman, Eicher Group stressed on the term Industry 4.0 or the fourth industrial revolution which involves Data exchange, Cyber fiscal norms, internet of things. He said the key part of a manufacturing strategy is the definition of whether products will continue to be produced at the traditional manufacturing sites, or if the cost advantages make it beneficial to set up manufacturing in geographic areas with a lower cost base. Automation has had a notable impact in a wide range of highly visible industries beyond manufacturing. Telecom sector is one such example. Even medical processes are carried out at much greater speed and accuracy by automated systems. All these factors clearly indicate the need for creating focused platform for deliberations on the issues in various sectors including the users & suppliers.
