Project description on all the stops for The Digitalization Expedition and what you can expect.

Bridging the skills gap for industry, exposing university graduates, and upgrading the existing workforce with Industry 4.0 training – these are among the more pressing and urgent agenda if the nation is to stay on top of digital transformation that is revolutionizing business models, market needs and manufacturing processes. As current workers are finding difficulty to gain employability and to fill positions due to the lack of skills and know-how, this leaves manufacturing-related jobs on the risk of being increasingly unfilled from the mismatch and incompatibleness in supply and demand.  

In this realization that there is much to be done for new territories that may have little exposure to Industry 4.0, therefore, Siemens Malaysia is officially collaborating with Kedah-based training provider KISMEC (Kedah Industrial Skills and Management Development Centre) that has now been appointed as a certified training partner under the flagship Siemens Innovation and Resources Training Centre or SIRTC, to run and conduct the Siemens Mechatronics Systems Certification Program. This appointment is the first to be established for the Northern region of Malaysia, one that is most timely as it coincides fittingly with the opening of KISMEC’s new K2 training centre at the Kulim Hi-Tech Park.

The event saw an attendance of about 500 participants and customers from across a range of industries, tenants at the Hi-Tech Park, members of the Kulim Industrial Tenant Association, universities, government agencies as well as non-profit organizations from around the region. To signify this partnership, a certificate was presented by Siemens Malaysia President & CEO, Mr Indranil Lahiri, to KISMEC CEO Mr Mohd Yusuri Yusof. 

“The SIRTC is our solution to help bridge the skills gap in the industry, where we want to collaborate with partners, training centers and universities to offer technical know-how and knowledge transfer under our SIRTC certified labs,” said Indranil. “Through it, the upgrading of latest knowledge from industry to the education platform can take form. To date, Siemens is one of the few organizations in the country leading the digitalization drive, and which can ably deliver a comprehensive and full-fledged suite of training programs customized to individual customer’s needs and to meet market demands.

Some of the solutions available at the Siemens Digitalization Marketplace include Siemens Intelligent Plant Equipment Health Monitoring System, Smart Data Meter Management system through its EnergyIP® solution, the Siemens Remote On-Site Service smart glass technology, and the Digital Enterprise Suite which digitalizes business processes.

The Malaysian Oil & Gas Services Exhibition & Conference (MOGSEC) was conceptualized as a platform for the Malaysian Oil & Gas Industry in 2012 by the Malaysian Oil and Gas Services Council (MOGSC). The event is one of its kind as it champions the development of local companies which dabble in the Oil & Gas industry. The iconic identity of the MOGSEC series is derived from its exclusivity towards showcasing home-grown talent and promoting Malaysia as the region's Oil & Gas hub. 

During its installation in 2016, over 313 exhibitors as well as 5,992 professionals and trade visitors participated in the event - recording a total of 232 scheduled meetings between attendees and exhibitors through B2B business matching platforms. The event drew impressive participation from organizations and individuals involved in the Oil & Gas value chain, and some of the region's largest industry players such as PETRONAS, Sapura Energy Berhad, Muhibbah Engineering and Boustead - just to name a few.

MOGSEC 2018 promises to be the best one yet as over 94% of exhibitors in 2016 have pledged to return, with the theme of 'Catalyzing Regional Growth in Oil & Gas'. The event will continue to advocate for Malaysia to assume the role as the regional hub for Oil & Gas services and accelerate growth of the sector beyond Asia. The event also presents a perfect opportunity for delegations within the region to witness the technologies and innovations on exhibition as well as meet key Malaysian industry players for potential partnerships and investments. 

In partnership with the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA), Siemens Malaysia set up a Digitalization Audit Counter during the 3-day event at Exhibition Booth 1801. The counter featured free Digitalization assessments from Siemens in-house experts for businesses to understand their Industry 4.0 readiness in the ever challenging landscape of the Oil & Gas sector. There was also a special 30-minute presentation by a Siemens Malaysia representative at the Innovation Centre on Siemens solutions and technologies for the Oil & Gas industry that push the boundaries of innovation.

With the Penang government’s declaration to transform the state into a smart state under its new development plan for 2030, Siemens Malaysia is poised to embark on crucial initiatives and introduce solutions that would support the needs of the state’s ecosystem. Industry 4.0 is already making an impact across the various industry sectors and effects are visible in the way that processes and operations are now being supported and developed. 

In order to keep pace with the breakneck speed where systems are being revolutionized, Industry 4.0 needs to be swiftly deployed in the manufacturing industry and automation of factories. It’s imperative for Penang to keep progressing and to stay competitive on both the national and global level, and for it to leverage on technology to improve on its state GDP productivity.

The full-day event is expected to attract a crowd comprising of SMEs, government-linked-companies, industry players as well as key stakeholders, who will be able to witness the comprehensive portfolio of solutions driven by Siemens in sectors that span building technologies, smart manufacturing and automation, smart energy and even power generation at the centerpiece Marketplace showcase.

Additionally, customers will also have the opportunity to showcase and promote their best reference cases through their collaboration with Siemens at this exhibition, spanning the different vertical markets like pharmaceutical, F&B, medical devices, and E&E. Guests and customers will also have the opportunity to also participate in a digital maturity analysis and one-to-one meeting sessions with Siemens experts for advisory services and solutions on their pain-points or concerns with digital implementation
