What is the Aronui Industry 4.0 Navigator at Callaghan Innovation?

The Aronui Industry 4.0 Navigator is a free interactive learning space at Callaghan Innovation’s Textile Centre, in Parnell, Auckland. The navigator is a guided experience, designed to demystify Industry 4.0, and inspire business leaders to:

  • think beyond optimising productivity and manufacturing

  • use Industry 4.0 as a business-wide framework

  • build a roadmap for change.

It does this by:
  • explaining the guiding principles of Industry 4.0.

  • demonstrating the case for change and sharing how other businesses are using enabling technologies.

  • exploring with you how a tailored, actionable Industry 4.0 strategy can grow your business.

How does it work?

The Aronui Industry 4.0 Navigator host will guide you through the interactive installation. The experience will be customised to your business identified through a pre-assessment before your team visits the Aronui Centre. At Aronui, you’ll learn more about how Industry 4.0 concepts and technologies can meet your unique business needs. 

During an interactive workshop, you will be guided to:

  • Think Big - assess your business goals and potential

  • Start Small - start building a plan to meet that potential

  • Scale Fast - know how to implement that plan to fulfil that potential.

The key outcomes of the experience are to:

  • demystify Industry 4.0 and ensure everyone involved has an understanding of what it is and what it is not
  • examine global and local case studies of businesses that have undertaken Industry 4.0 initiatives and explore how these could be applied to your business
  • develop a roadmap outlining key next steps specific to Industry 4.0 and your business’ needs/strategy
  • explore the wider Industry 4.0 ecosystem in New Zealand and which Callaghan Innovation services may be of benefit to your business going forward.
