SAGE Automation-Manufacturing





There’s no question that digital operations are transforming manufacturing.

A range of innovations that fall under the 'IIoT’ or Industry 4.0 umbrella all point towards more computer-integrated manufacturing operations or the ‘connected enterprise’.

Some manufacturers are moving towards varying levels of IT and OT systems integration managed through a centralised platform, but the practicalities of actually achieving IIoT capabilities seems far off for others. Nevertheless, research shows businesses will need to heavily invest in digital technologies over the next five years in order to remain competitive.

Manufacturing is becoming more connected and centralised. As this connectivity increases, companies must dedicate more resources to data analysis and management and the central management of computer-integrated manufacturing systems is essential. The Nukon team assists manufacturers in connecting their data and obtaining insights in order to optimise their operations. Learn more about Nukon.

Embedded Expertise Manufacturing


Embedded Expertise 

This changes in the manufacturing sector means companies must learn how to design, engineer and manage manufacturing facilities of the future in order to remain competitive.  

Australia’s pool of engineers with experience in this area is small, and in order to meet the demand for these skills, employers are increasingly turning to project-based employment models. Mounting time pressures and demand spikes mean companies need a fast solution to their candidate needs, one that can hit the ground running. Embedded Expertise matches high-calibre technical expertise with the clients who need them.
