The 4th Industrial Revolution is upon us.

Industry 4.0

LMAC are New Zealand’s leading Industry 4.0 experts and the only certified SIRI assessors in New Zealand and Australia.

The internationally recognised Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI) is the pre-eminent assessment tool to measure your facilities Industry 4.0 readiness.

Unlike equipment and technology providers, we are not tied to a solution.  Instead, we evaluate your organisation, processes and technology to establish what the problems and opportunities are and then consider cost effective solutions that are proven and reliable.

THE approach FOR NEW ZEALAND

A sound understanding

After 16 years servicing NZ manufacturers, we have a good understanding of the issues being faced. 

  • Skills shortages
  • Poor productivity
  • How to be competitive in a low volume, high variety manufacturing environment
  • Getting good return on investment from Technology / automation initiatives without the volume of production that other countries have
  • Access to examples and best practice
  • Finding the right solution providers and access to service agents

Our approach takes account of these factors. Smaller steps in line with organisational readiness will ensure sustainable results and progression.

Our skills and experience fall into 3 major categories:

 

Organisation

  • Strategy and Governance for Industry 4.0 implementation
  • People and Development needs  
  • Readiness for technology and change

Process

  • Processes and systems currently in place (physical and IT architecture) 
  • Vertical and Horizontal integration / connectedness of your operation
  • What needs to be changed and what doesn’t

Technology

  • Mechatronics
  • Data/Artificial Intelligence/Robotic Process Automation
  • Connectivity/Internet of Things (IoT)

The Industry 4.0 Demonstration Network

Industry 4.0 Readiness 

In the current business climate we are all having to do things smarter and faster to keep up with the pace of change. Manufacturing is no exception.

We’re collaborating with key partners to bring you the very best knowledge and experience. 

Our partnership with EMA/Manufacturers Network and Preferred Supplier status with Callaghan Innovation ensures you have access to invaluable insights and information along your I4 journey, and potential funding routes.

As part of the Government’s Industry 4.0 Demonstration Network, Callaghan Innovation is funding limited opportunities provided by the EMA and LMAC to assess your facility for Industry 4.0 readiness.

Using the internationally recognised Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI) we will work with exemplar companies to prioritise the key areas of focus to advance with Industry 4.0. 

The result will be a high level road map for how to start on this journey so you get maximum return from investing in these technologies. We are therefore seeking expressions of interest from manufacturers who would like to apply to go through this process.

Industry 4.0 and differing international enterpretations can be confusing, and navigating through on-line academic reports can test the patience of the best of us.  If you’re a time constrained manufacturing leader, have questions and need some plain English response then feel free to contact us.  We may not be able to respond immediately, but we will get back to you.
