The Reality of the Early Journey to Industry 4.0

Many manufacturers are on their journey to Industry 4.0, but you cannot expect to go from concept to reality overnight. What can you expect? Join this webinar to learn from Alois Schacherl, Group Manager IT Manufacturing Services for AT&S, manufacturer of high end advanced printed circuit boards (PCBs) worldwide.

Alois will admit there are no shortcuts. He is finding that the first step to successfully achieving the vision of Industry 4.0 is to implement a new, modern MES. Alois has led the AT&S journey, first implementing MES in a plant in Chongqing China and since then in Hinterberg Austria.

Tune in to learn:

  • Why MES is the foundation of Industry 4.0 and how to select one that is Industry 4.0 ready
  • Considerations for building a digital factory in a high mix plant with 1000s of products
  • What benefits the New MES delivers in different plants
  • Ways AT&S is preparing for predictive maintenance
  • How to minimize the challenges of equipment integration, process understanding, and scenario mapping
  • How MES helps to overcome the Industry 4.0 skills shortage

This informative 40-minute presentation, interview and Q&A session will equip you to take the next steps on your Industry 4.0 journey.
