CECE launches the Digitalisation Project at Intermat


CECE is pleased to invite you to the public launch of the CECE Digitalisation Project on Wednesday 25th April at 9am in Room 610 in Hall 6 at INTERMAT!

The Background

As highlighted in a 2016 research by McKinsey and CECE, digitisation is recognised by machinery manufacturers as the main technology trend.

Digital transformations are indeed happening in the machinery sector, as much as in other parts of the larger construction industry. Following the main recommendation of the McKinsey research, CECE is pushing for a global value-chain approach to have the construction industry as the leader of these changes.

The Project

In light of this approach, CECE took the decision to kick off the next phase of its digitisation project.

A consulting team has been tasked with a research project involving multiple data collection tools inserted in a methodology that will lead to the presentation of the final results at the CECE Congress 2018 on 19thOctober 2018.

The project is managed by a Steering Committee that meets regularly. As part of the value chain approach, representatives of European construction contractors (FIEC) and equipment rental companies (ERA) are members of the Steering Committee.

The Launch Event

Taking place in Room 610 in Hall 6 at INTERMAT, the launch event will start at 9am with registration and welcome coffee. It will end at 11am.

Opening the launch event, CECE Secretary General Riccardo Viaggi will explain the background of the research, the steps CECE took to properly identify the project as well as the parallel actions CECE is undertaking at the EU level in Brussels to involve the construction value-chain representatives.

The consulting team, lead by Davide Meinero of I&D Consulting and Marco Volontà of SIRIO, will present the most relevant elements of the methodology and will outline the most important steps of the project.

Robert Laux (BOMAG) in his capacity of Vice-chair of the CECE High-level technical policy advisory group will conclude the event by reminding the vast importance this project has for CECE.

Questions and inputs from the audience will be possible throughout the launch event.
