Leeds Digital Festival: Specialist Sessions Target Application of Digital Technologies in Manufacturing and Utilities

Industrial software specialist Novotek UK and Ireland will host two sessions during the Leeds Digital Festival taking place from September 20–October 1, 2021. The virtual sessions aim to educate engineers and business leaders in manufacturing and utilities on the role of digital technologies in Leeds’s growing industrial sector, which Novotek recently joined.

Novotek will focus its sessions on the topics of data analytics for industrial operations and visualization for industrial asset reliability. The first session, on September 21 at 10:30am will offer practical advice for manufacturers and utilities operators looking to improve management of industrial data platforms and analytics.

The second session to be held at 10:30am on September 28 will explore the importance of data analytics and visualisation in asset reliability management. In particular, the session will highlight why the best solution is a strong data framework and a setup featuring fewer software applications and more data inputs.

Both sessions' goal is to provide practical guidance to engineers and industrial business leaders, based on the average standard of technological advancement and in-house skills that Novotek’s team typically encounters.

“Digital technologies are now just as applicable to industrial operations as they are to professional services and back-office environments,” explained Chris Wilson, application consultant at Novotek UK and Ireland and presenter of the September 21 session. “However, the process for implementing these technologies into industrial operations is often more challenging, due to data siloes and available skills.

“When we think of terms like artificial intelligence and predictive analysis, we often think that they require a particularly advanced set of IT skills. In reality, the use of those technologies in industrial applications can be facilitated by the skills that most engineers and industrial IT teams have. 

“The challenge tends to come from getting industrial data systems in a state that allows those tools to be applied effectively. Our sessions take two distinct approaches to addressing this, both of which aim to leave viewers with something practical they can go and act on — whether that is to adjust their data strategies and consolidate systems, or to plan the best investment.”

More information on Novotek’s sessions is available on the Leeds Digital Festival website or Novotek’s Eventbrite. Industrial business leaders and engineers in the manufacturing and utilities sectors can register for the free sessions here (September 21) and here (September 28).
