Digitalisation seems to be the new industry buzzword, but what does it actually mean for the process industry? A need to reduce costs drives our desire for increased efficiency; a new generation of digital technology claims to make this possible. Do the rewards of digitalisation outweigh both the risks and the expenditure? Digitalisation isn’t just about introducing new technology, it often means that systems can be rendered more vulnerable, processes have to be updated, work forces have to be trained, systems have to be successfully integrated and the data captured has to be processed. The question remains, which technology gives best return on investment?

Join us to discuss the challenges of this increasingly complex industrial landscape at the second annual conference jointly organised by InstMC and SPE Aberdeen. A mix of presentations and workshops will form part of the virtual programme which will take place on 25 – 26 November 2020.
