Retired Quality Assurance Manager, ASQ Certified Quality Auditor
After three industrial revolutions, and all the damage done to the planet, are we at the point of no return? We are facing “Industry 4.0". Can our manufacturing processes and new product designs contribute to the efforts of sustainability? What is going to be the competitive edge between manufacturers?
Our speaker will explore the answers offered by Nature. Over a billion years of continual improvement, nature has come up with winning lean strategies adopted by all complex, mature ecosystems.
The presentation will look at:
• Earth’s lean operating system and compare it with processes in industry;
• The future of the consumer economy;
• The need for multidisciplinary teams (engineer, biologist, ecologist, mathematician);
• Examples of biomimicry innovations as forms, processes and systems.
