Member News

Made in Yorkshire members Cimlogic are looking to get manufacturers to talk about their concerns and issues in this current climate, through encouraging debate and knowledge sharing in an upcoming webinar session.

Speaking to Claire Healey from Cimlogic, she outlined the purpose of these sessions stating that, “The purpose of this event is to discuss the challenges that manufacturers are experiencing today and how they will emerge and evolve from this situation.”

The group is looking to build on the experience of those in the manufacturing sector, and through that are asking for questions to be submitted before the event. However, in speaking to Claire, she highlighted the three areas that they’re going to focus on;

  • Staffing - how are manufacturers managing with reduced staff levels and varying skill sets?

  • Social distancing - what new measures have been introduced on the shop floor? How is staff managing working from home?
