Spring Meeting - MESA International Special Interest Group UK 2017
Thank You for Joining Us at Spring Meeting MESA International SIG


An Opportunity to Learn and Share Industry Best Practice


The aim of the MESA UK SIG was to give UK manufacturing companies, information technology hardware and software suppliers, system integrators, consulting service providers, analysts, editors, academics and students the opportunity to learn and share MOM best practice, as we head into an age of digitisation with The Connected Enterprise, Smart Manufacturing, Industrial Internet of Things and Industry 4.0.

MESA International is a ‘not for profit’ community striving to help industry improve business results using information technology and management best practices. These events are intended to be interactive, two way information exchanges amongst specialists (and those wishing to become specialists) in the field.

As part of the event, we invited the assistants to attend the discussions and subsequent tour of The International Manufacturing Centre and The Energy Innovation Centre.
