Upgrade to Industry 4.0

Webinar Series for Manufacturing Industry Consultants

Recommended for Consultants working with clients in discreet assembly and high tech industries such as Semiconductor, High-Tech Electronics, High–End PCB and Medical Device and Diagnostics.

Digital Transformation is a major initiative that is on the minds of many manufacturing and business executives. While only 30% of companies surveyed by the analyst community say that they are advanced in their digital journey, many are planning how they will prioritize their investments to gain the essential benefits, efficiency and cost reduction promised by Industry 4.0 and Smart Manufacturing Initiatives.

Customers are demanding lower cost, yet customized products which in turn is driving manufacturers to make Industry 4.0 a reality. Fortunately, technology exists today that allows not only lower cost, but higher quality, faster processing, and shorter time to market for personalized products. The obvious technologies include the Internet of Things (IoT), mobile computing, cloud storage, software and service availability, big data, advanced analytics, machine learning, robotics and virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR). However, these new technologies need a backbone connecting and coordinating them. The only way to guarantee quality, ensure productivity, manage cost, and have reliable delivery dates is with a Manufacturing Execution System (MES). The success of Industry 4.0 rests on a new generation of MES that is Industry 4.0 ready.

This webinar series will provide you will the latest education on Modern MES and how it differentiates from traditional MES to make Industry 4.0 a reality. Join us to learn how you can create business value for your clients by helping them make the most informed decisions on their digital journey.

Speakers:This exclusive, invitation-only webinar series is focused on educating industry professionals that help manufacturers develop and deploy manufacturing and digital transformation strategies.
