MARCH’S TOPIC: Your Intelligent, Connected Factory – Getting Started
Wednesday, March 20, 2019 | 12:00 pm EDT
Advanced manufacturing processes require consideration of massive and ever-growing volumes of data, variables and constraints, as well as real-time decision making. IoT and artificial intelligence (AI) increasingly allow manufacturers the eminent ability to address this complexity: support factory floor staff and managers in daily decisions, increase throughput, reduce costs, meet strict quality and time-to-market requirements — all to remain profitable and competitive. However, as with any case of new technology adoption, challenges must be overcome, and best practices followed.
This webinar will address questions regarding the practical aspects of deploying these groundbreaking technologies, using real-life examples demonstrating the associated challenges and best practices to address them, all to capture the disruptive value IoT and AI can bring to today’s manufacturing world.
