Preparing Your Company for Industry 4.0
October 3 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Industry 4.0 marries advanced production and operational techniques with digital technologies to create a Smart Factory that is not only interconnected and autonomous, but also communicates, analyzes and uses data to drive intelligent action back in the physical world. It’s about more than just production though. According to Deloitte Insights … the smart, connected technologies of Industry 4.0 will transform how parts and products are designed, made, used and maintained. It will also transform companies themselves. Specifically, how they make sense of information and act on it to achieve operational excellence and continually improve the experiences of their customers and partners.
Today, the question on the minds of all manufacturers is not if Industry 4.0 is coming, but how quickly it will impact my company, my customers and my supply chains. It takes courage to adopt new technology, specifically something as daunting as Industry 4.0, but the rewards can be significant as shown by the success of early adopters. The key is to start small, conduct one or more pilots, and think strategically about where to start.
This workshop will include:
- An overview of the nine technologies driving the Industry 4.0 transformation of manufacturing
- Discussion of the eight value drivers of Industry 4.0
- Assessment of your company’s readiness for Industry 4.0 adoption
- Assessment of your company’s key pain points and discussion of next steps to develop a Roadmap for Industry 4.0 to maximize your company’s ROI during adoption
