The Connected Factory: How to Survive and Scale in the Age of Disruption


Date: Thursday, July 28, 2022
Time: 02:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
Duration: 1 hour

The manufacturing industry is undergoing rapid disruption, from material shortages and supply chain delays to changing consumer behavior and the great resignation. These events are exceptionally difficult to overcome in an industry that’s slow to innovate.

Manufacturers that thrive rather than merely survive have found clever ways to connect their entire operation including machines, processes, software, and most importantly people. Achieving this end state requires specific efforts to prioritize interoperability and composability for system and process integration.

Join industry veteran, Russell Waddell, as he makes the case for connected, augmented operations – and how to get there with the right approach and technology.

During this webinar, you’ll take away:

  • Why the manufacturing industry is finally shifting to a composable approach with interoperability and integration
  • Benchmarks for a fully connected factory and which technologies are real and usable today
  • Case studies and examples
