Overview

In this webinar, the sixth in our series "Digital Enterprises - for the Electronics and Semiconductor Industry," we'll look more closely at how measuring and evaluating the right metrics in manufacturing can uncover the root cause of defects, predict imminent failures and locate inefficiencies in processes. Continuous improvement is the goal of every business, and analytics-driven insights play a critical role in bringing high-performance, reliable and cost-effective products to market faster. Without it, it's anybody's guess where improvements are needed.

According to PwC, out of 2,000 manufacturers they studied, 86% expect to see cost reductions and revenue gains from their digitization efforts over the next five years.

Smart manufacturing, akin to Industry 4.0, is a key digitalization strategy that helps companies achieve economic sustainability and is gaining ground as a way of addressing this rapidly changing landscape. It's all about increasing throughput, uptime and performance while reducing overhead costs, operating costs and capital costs.

However, understanding how and where to implement smart manufacturing in your manufacturing environment can be a daunting prospect. By using data and analytics manufacturers can diagnose the obstacles limiting productivity and causing failures. When you have the data at your fingertips in real time, the right people can make the right decisions to boost productivity and keep costs down. This provides new capabilities and business models that allow your business to grow.

Please join us while we take a deeper dive into some of the new and fascinating technological advances that are transforming electronics industry.
