Smart Industry, also known as Industry 4.0 or the Fourth Industrial Revolution, represents the integration of advanced digital technologies into industrial processes and systems.
The Flevum meetings on the theme of Smart Industry provides a platform to discuss current trends, insights, and best practices related to the digital transformation of the industrial sector. By exploring topics such as digital technologies, automation, data analytics, cybersecurity, workforce transformation, and smart supply chain, participants can gain a deeper understanding of the potential of Smart Industry and its impact on industrial excellence. This Flevum theme aims to inspire and empower organizations to embrace digital transformation and leverage the opportunities offered by Smart Industry to achieve sustainable growth and competitiveness.
The promise of Industry 4.0 to create a world of seamless communication between machines, optimally efficient processes and unparalleled productivity is as appealing across industries as it is difficult to reach. Perfetti van Melle, however, is up to the task and is making that vision a reality with a keen sense of innovation and a history of excellence in manufacturing. Koert van de Pest, Supply Chain and Operations Director Benelux at Perfetti van Melle, is one of the people charged with guiding the company to their lofty goal. One way he achieves this is through monitoring the efficiency of his manufacturing equipment with the help of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)-measurements as a performance indicator. You are cordially invited to the Vision Dinner with Koert van de Pest. Koert will take you through how Perfetti van Melle harnesses the power of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) measurements to quantitatively assess production efficiency, make data-driven decisions, and achieve continuous improvement. He will furthermore tie OEE into their broader manufacturing strategy and share the lessons he learned during his work optimizing Perfetti van Melle’s manufacturing process at all levels of maturity.
Jeroen Scheer and his team have developed a way of working to make quick decisions about digital innovations linked to business strategy and value. From to scouting to full scaled deployment in a harmonised manner. They have successfully implemented this at Shell and are now happy to share their experience and lessons-learned with you. During this Vision Dinner, Jeroen will go into depth about the set-up of this way of working, the challenges encountered and successes they celebrated. This session is a great opportunity to gain valuable insights from one of the industry’s leading experts and to exchange ideas with peers from other companies.

When looking for opportunities to share knowledge and experiences with peers in your field of expertise, Flevum offers a variety of programs which allow open dialogue. Our sessions are based on undermentioned key points.
Because we want to ensure open dialogue, our sessions have a small-scaled nature. This way, we allow participants to share experiences and recently faced challenges. The group of participants varies from 10 to 25.
During our sessions, we bring together participants from various sectors and/or industries. This means participants can share their experiences with peers from other sectors and this allows participants to have a meaningful experience.
Our sessions are introduced by relevant keynote speakers from top 500 companies, healthcare institutions and government institutions. The speaker presents his or her own vision regarding the subject by sharing experiences. The brief introduction will serve as a prelude to the following discussion.
Our sessions focus on peer-to-peer knowledge exchange with a cross-learning character. This means executives will engage in conversation with other executives, CHRO's with CHRO's, but also IT Directors with Data Directors or Innovation Directors. By screening every application to a session, we make sure that all participants are from the same audience. This allows us to ensure peer-to-peer knowledge exchange.
To ensure open dialogue and allow participants to share succes, challenges and other experiences, our sessions are held within an enclosed environment (the Chatham House Rule applies). To be concrete, this means no recordings will be made during the session and shared information will remain private to participants.
