Industry 4.0 promises to be revolutionary for manufacturers -- but integrating it and capitalizing on its value can be a daunting challenge. Join GlobalSpec for this series of webinars that feature expert panelists from Industry 4.0's leading SDOs.
4 Sessions Beginning June 16, 2021
Duration (Per Session):
"Manufacturing just got a lot more complicated."
That is a hard truth and common thought for many manufacturing engineers considering, integrating or acclimating with Industry 4.0 environments. They're already tasked with managing diverse equipment and processes, and maintaining those systems effectively to create a reliable, modern facility. Add in the potential for thousands of data points, hundreds of sensors, dozens of terminals, and the digital networks and software to create a cohesive output.
It is completely understandable that today's brilliant-but-overextended engineers need assistance when it comes to Industry 4.0. And GlobalSpec and its SDO partners are here to help.
Join our host and engineer, Barry Manz, as he discusses today's leading Industry 4.0 challenges and technologies with panelists from industry-defining standards organizations.
