Manufacturing of Today and Tomorrow: Smart. Digital, Industry 4.0

Posted by Electro-Matic on Feb 25, 2020 11:00:00 AM


Join Siemens and innovation thought leaders at our annual Summit where we will explore how you can realize your digital transformation. During the morning session, you will take part in thought provoking presentations, discussions, and best practice sharing with leading experts in manufacturing, the economy, technology, and innovation.

The Manufacturing in America Summit brings the manufacturing community together to facilitate collaboration and spur innovation. Focused on building strong leadership within manufacturing, discussing the latest trends, and illustrating how leading-edge technology and automation helps U.S. manufacturing become more profitable, innovative and globally competitive, it’s the key thought leadership and highlight of Manufacturing in America.

How are you using technology to refine manufacturing processes and to bring better products to market faster and cheaper?

You are familiar with smart technologies in the home. Voice technology assistance, thermostats, light bulbs, robotic vacuum systems. These devices collect data using sensors to perform tasks and provide automated responses to changing conditions. Smart technologies perform similar tasks on the factory floor, monitoring processes, troubleshooting on-the-fly, re-configuring within a moments notice, monitoring the condition of the factory, worker, and supply chain. We explore concepts driving smart manufacturing -- the convergence of manufacturing, automation, data analytics and machine learning from the factory floor to the supply chain. Together we'll explore cases that will help you build and operate now and in the future.
