Track: AI & Smart Automation
Session Title: Where Should You Begin Your Industry 4.0 and IIoT Journey?
Session Date: Monday, June 6, 2022
Session Time: 8:00 AM - 8:45 AM
Session Abstract: Though the manufacturing industry generally accepts the need to automate, the barrier to entry can cause hesitation. However, there are clear baby steps manufacturers can take to begin their journey to automation. In this session, we’ll look at several initial steps in the manufacturing process that can be improved with IIoT, including paper-based operations, improving material flow, and locating inventory. In greater detail, we’ll dive into each step and how IIoT can be implemented in a simple way to essentially “test the waters” before investing in all-out transformation across the business. For example, eliminating paper and printing costs by replacing paper-based picking operations with an electronic workflow. Finally, we’ll discuss best practices for presenting these ideas to executives, including elevator pitches and ROI benefits, and both the short-term and long-term (obtaining real-time data to generate insights into your operation) benefits of implementing IIoT.
