Industry 4.0: Smart Manufacturing in the Factory of the Future
February 27, 2020
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment” (Warren Bennis). Today’s manufacturing facilities are capturing unparalleled amounts of data. After they determine if it’s the right data, how can they then leverage it to automate production, improve productivity and profitability, and enable predictive and intelligent, data-driven processes? The experts speak. Raymond Russ, Fujitsu Americas: “Change is inevitable, Growth is optional” (John C. Maxwell). Mike Lackey, SAP: “If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk…but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward” (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.). Dave Elmer, Hunter Douglas: “I don’t care that they stole my idea…I care that they don’t have any of their own” (Nikola Tesla). Join us for Industry 4.0: Smart Manufacturing in the Factory of the Future.

Industry 4.0 changes everything. Automation and built-in intelligence make a difference at every step of your business, helping you deliver individualized products and services with the efficiency of mass production.
The digitization of the industrial production environment in factories, plants, and warehouses is driven by technology innovations which appeared in the aftermath of the Internet and cloud revolution: Internet of Things (IoT) connecting devices, machine-to-machine communication, distributed computing, new edge and cloud technologies, times series and big data lakes, machine learning and artificial intelligence, new mobile user experiences (e.g. augmented or virtual reality) to enable digital workers, autonomous systems and vehicles.
Join host Bonnie D. Graham and renowned experts from around the world as they discuss opportunities, challenges, and benefits of transforming and driving business innovation with Industry 4.0.
