We’d like to invite you to a DIY4U Webinar . Hosted by the DIY4U consortium partners, the webinar will aim to bring together innovators to explore the challenge and opportunities in shaping the future of the FMCG industry.

DIY4U is set up to tackle the technological blockers to bring this future to life with digital, hardware and process innovation. Join us where we will look at how we can optimise formulations through advanced data processing and analysis. 

The presenters will look at data science and machine learning, how we can produce personalised detergents through manufacturing demonstration facilities and finally you will get an opportunity to have a interactive virtual reality experience of the facilities itself.

Agenda/​Points for discussion

We will talk about: 

Welcome – 5 mins

Customization of FMCG products through Digitalised Non-discrete Manufacturing: Exploring the DIY4U Concept and Beyond SINTEF — 12 mins

Data Science and Machine Learning for Manufacturing: An Introduction -CPI — 12 mins

Machine Learning (ML) continues to being implemented in manufacturing and production. We will give an introduction to Machine Learning in which we cover the basics of different types of machine learning, e.g. supervised vs unsupervised, and will cover opportunities and limitations of using machine learning. We will also show a use case for ML in FMCG

Producing personalized detergents in Manufacturing Demonstration Facilities - CODY12 mins 

Customization of FMCG products through Digitalised Non-discrete Manufacturing: Exploring the DIY4U Concept and Beyond – SINTEF — 20 mins 

Mass production in FMCG presents a major challenge due to inadequate infrastructure, limiting product customization and personalisation. DIY4U project, funded under EU H2020 programme aims to address these challenges by promoting collaborative production engineering approach through open innovation digital platforms integrated into smart, modular based, fully automated small scale manufacturing units (MDFs). A web-based portal facilitates users to create personalized/​customised liquid and particulate detergents. The relevant innovative business models with potential use cases have been identified in different market sectors. 

MDF interactive training using VRCETEMET12 mins 

The interactive training is a digital video that supports user interaction through a variety of gesturing actions and tools. The procedure developed can be used on various digital platforms including Virtual Reality (VR). The Interactive digital video-based learning comprises a 3D model of the Manufacturing Demonstration Facilities (MDF) that enables interaction with the user. By clicking on hotspots users are encourage to engage in a combination of passive and participatory interaction with the training video. These tools make the experience more enjoyable and engaging for the customer, transforming a potentially static video into a memorable and interactive involvement. 

Q&A ‑10 mins
