A MANUFACTURING SEMINAR
In this half-day+ event, we will delve into the Connected Factory. We will start with the big picture concept of the Connected Factory and discuss how technology is fueling the sea change in manufacturing. Once we have set the stage, a panel of experts will share their real-life experiences of bringing the Connected Factory to life. This is a unique opportunity to learn from multiple manufacturing organizations and gain valuable insights into best-practices, known barriers and unforeseen pitfalls encountered when working toward the Connected Factory.
There is no cost for this event, and both breakfast and lunch will be provided. After lunch we will have three hands-on breakout sessions to help attendees better understand key components on the path to the Connected Factory.
