December 7 @ 9:00 am - December 8 @ 2:00 pm

Although some have already begun their journey, many manufacturers are still talking about digitizing their manufacturing floor and wondering if it’s a worthwhile investment. Industry 4.0 describes the evolution of industry toward interconnectivity, automation, advanced analytics, and basing decisions on real-time data capture from the shop floor. As with any initiative, the most effective implementations begin with a clearly defined business case and a well-designed roadmap.

This course provides attendees with a broad understanding of key Industry 4.0 solutions that marry physical production and operations with smart digital technology, plant connectivity, artificial intelligence, and predictive analytics; all to create a connected ecosystem for organizations to level up their uptime, quality, and overall productivity.
