About the Content

COVID-19 exposed vulnerabilities in the manufacturing process for many organizations. Global supply chains have nearly halted and challenged processes that previously upheld cost reduction incentives as well as speed and efficiency. Companies have accelerated the implementation of artificial intelligence into manufacturing operations by connecting with their supply chain partners through AI technology and offering new smart products.

Within the next six years, the use of AI in manufacturing is expected to grow by nearly 60%. This is a result of competitive organizations seeing the value that AI solutions provide and continuing to adopt them into their manufacturing strategies, supply chain operations, and production. 

Our discussion will provide insights into the benefits of implementing enterprise AI solutions, explore how machine learning will impact the future of manufacturing, and discover the digital infrastructure requirements needed to optimize these implementations.

Discussion Topics

  • Using AI technology, such as real-time, cloud-based predictive maintenance solutions, to improve manufacturing
  • Implementing multi/hybrid cloud architectures to support AI and ML
  • Storing data generated by connected supply chains and digital factories safely, securely, and with respect to privacy
  • Creating the right organizational culture to realize the benefits of data-driven decision making
  • Understanding the impact of the supply chain trend of localization vs. globalization
  • Ensuring the workforce has the right skills to build and leverage AI solutions
