The Power of Smart Manufacturing

January 11, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


The Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are getting a lot of media hype lately. For manufacturing, this revolves around the concept of smart manufacturing (or Industry 4.0 if you are based in Europe).

The concepts aren’t entirely new to the industry (e.g., machine-to-machine), but certainly recent technology advances allow us to bring together data capture, connectivity, remote control and, most importantly, analytics to deliver on the promise of cyber-physical manufacturing sooner than you might think. There’s a massive amount of information out there, mostly revolving around opinions on Industry 4.0 or point-solutions from technology vendors. What’s truly lacking is an objective conversation on smart manufacturing that outlines goals, benefits and challenges. More importantly, most research that’s available haven’t discussed specific steps regarding implementation.

Until now.

In this webinar, Madhu Gaganam, Chief Digital Strategist at Logical Heuristics will present the following:

Context and condensed genesis of the history of Industry 4.0
Goals, Challenges and Benefits of Smart Manufacturing
Business Enablers driving Smart Manufacturing
The 6 Components of an Effective Manufacturing Transformation
Strategy Design and the Execution Model

There are opportunities to improve efficiencies across labor, materials and energy through the application of smart manufacturing principles. But businesses need to go beyond the hype of technology and the usual “siloed solution approach” which only contributes to a higher failure rate on digital innovation. A holistic and comprehensive approach that includes a balanced perspective is a must. An effective Industry 4.0 transformation must consider and leverage the people factor (e.g. employees, customers, partners, vendors, suppliers) in order to drive a truly successful digital innovation.

Ideal Attendees:
CxOs, Head of Manufacturing, Program Manager, Engineers, Strategy Officers, Media
