Everything is connected on the shop floor. Predictive analytics and IoT offer new, exciting opportunities to connect in-house operations and transform processes. 3D printing has been embraced to support rapid prototyping. Technologies like augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) make it possible for technicians to provide professional remote assistance to customers, walking through basic troubleshooting and repair operations. How can you ensure your organization is enabled with “world-class IT” to enable a successful smart manufacturing strategy for business? Our panel of industry experts will discuss: • Which best-in-class KPIs need to be tracked to measure success? • What technological advances should manufacturers be prepared for in next year, 5-years, 10 years? • How do you know which solutions will deliver the most value to your organization? • What are the best practices towards security in an integrated IT+OT environment? • What technologies can you use to augment rather than replace your workforce?
