Modern manufacturing requires navigating a sea of unknowns. Are my products competitive? Am I as efficient as I could be? What do I do if I can’t find the necessary workers to accomplish what my company needs? For many small and medium-sized Iowa manufacturers, the answers could involve automation.

This 30-minute webinar is designed to provide a broad overview of what automation can do for manufacturers in terms of improving efficiency, increasing throughput, and helping employees work more ergonomically. CIRAS experts will discuss what automation is, the state of the technology and where it’s heading, as well as the methodology and strategy that should factor into a company’s decision to automate a process.


Cost: FREE!

Sponsor: 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), the Illinois Manufacturing Excellence Center (IMEC), OpExChange, and the South Carolina MEP.
