Enhancing Manufacturing Process and Performance Through Industry 4.0

13 September 2022

Detroit, Michigan

As customer demands continue to evolve, it is critical that automotive OEMs design and manufacture smarter vehicles to remain competitive. Tomorrow’s vehicles are increasing in complexity, with more parts and technology being integrated than ever before. New approaches are required, with many automotive manufacturers relying on Industry 4.0 technologies to achieve mass customization, whilst continuing to increase capacity, reduce costs, and maintain safety.

Although implementing smart technologies will produce the desired ROI, understanding how to achieve value at scale while avoiding disruption to production and supply is complex, and requires a deep understanding of the technology, data, and manufacturing operations.

The Smart Manufacturing for Automotive Summit will provide you with the necessary tools to define a strategic roadmap that will enable you to build smarter vehicles and keep up with the accelerated pace and changing demands of consumers
