Jump Start Your Journey Towards Industry 4.0 Webinar

November 12, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


​The world is changing more rapidly than ever before. Modern factories have the ability to generate massive amounts of data – information to be analyzed for manufacturing processes that learn and quickly adapt to new demands. Today’s manufacturers have tremendous power to personalize products, optimize inventory, and improve quality. But exactly how are they supposed to make that happen? Where do you start? Should you rush to adopt the latest technologies, or wait for what’s coming? How do you even find out where you stand?

Industry 4.0 is a term that describes the next phase of modern manufacturing – a world where factories have the ability to generate massive amounts of data and quickly analyze it to improve their processes. This is a world with powerful benefits. But how do you know where to start?

This 90-minute webinar is designed to explain the changes and help manufacturers develop a plan. We’ll show you why Industry 4.0 is important and how the I-SMART assessment tool can help guide you towards the future. We’ll help you understand the process and present a few case studies illustrating how it works.

This event is sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology Manufacturing Extension Partnership, Purdue MEP, The Center for Industrial Research and Service at Iowa State University (CIRAS), and the Illinois Manufacturing Excellence Center (IMEC).
