The sixth workshop in the Mid-West Lean Network’s 2017 series of events, focused at encouraging more companies to look towards lean as  means of increasing operational efficiency, will take place at Dell EMC in Limerick next Tuesday, 10 October from 8am to 10am.

The workshop, which will examine how data drives business will be delivered by Pat O’Duffy, IoT Solution Architect, part of the Dell Global network of Customer Solution Centres, based in Limerick and Ivan O’Connor, Head of IOT, Action Point Technology Group, a unit that works closely with customers to design and build innovative IoT solutions that deliver clear business value.

Both presenters will give an overview of the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT), the increased quantity of data being produced, how it’s processed and the benefit of analytics.

The presentation will also include a high-level overview of the IoT and how it’s being adopted in industry. Particular focus will be given to the different data points and the value of processing at the edge, in the cloud, and the key benefits made by analysing the data. This will include an overview of Dell’s activity in this space.

The event will include a number of hands-on demonstrations and a tour of the facility.

The Mid-West Lean Network: the second largest regional lean network in Ireland, after Waterford Institute of Technology’s Lean Enterprise Excellence Group, launched in November 2016, was set up to strengthen and increase the existing culture of lean within the Shannon and the wider Mid-West region. Its aim is to enable each industry to broaden and strengthen their competitiveness through knowledge sharing and bench-marking against each other and different industries.
