#1- Advanced Manufacturing Technology – Starting the Digital Journey

Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) is a journey to digital transformation that begins at the plant floor. Identifying which technologies such as; ERP, Robotics, IIoT, Big Data, Cloud computing, wireless, predictive analytics, etc., that should be leveraged in your factory can be overwhelming.  Where do you begin? A well planned technology strategy allows your company to appropriately leverage these technologies to make incremental, short term business improvements that can deliver sustainable value on your journey to smarter manufacturing.
This workshop will provide proven methodologies and case studies to help attendees learn how to begin the AMT journey. Start small with a big picture in mind while prioritizing projects that can deliver the highest short term returns.

ATTENDEES WILL LEARN:

  • What is AMT and how does it apply to my facility
  • How to evaluate where you are now
  • Identify the opportunities
  • Create the strategy
  • How to set priorities
