About the 12th Conference on Learning Factories (CLF)
CLF is an international conference that attracts the top academics and researchers in the field of learning factories to meet, engage and share about their R&D findings. The goal of the Conference on Learning Factories is to promote cooperation among members to achieve excellence in teaching and research in the field of manufacturing engineering and production management. The conference attracts about 150 participants worldwide to attend each year. The 12th CLF in Singapore was conducted in hybrid mode; attracting about 60 physical and 80 virtual attendees.
The purpose of having the CLF and MPTC Annual Conference back-to-back is to showcase the transition of technology development from the R&D phase in a Learning Factory to successful implementation in the Industry. CLF will focus on the R&D discussion, while the MPTC Conference will demonstrate successful technology adoption by some of the local companies in Singapore.
