Reigniting the Manufacturing Workforce After COVID-19
Meritize
May 20, 2020
In spite of turbulent changes to the U.S. manufacturing base, manufacturers continue to be a pillar of the American economy, and they have shown resilience in the wake of COVID-19 by shifting their resources to help healthcare workers. Even as manufacturers close or suspend operations and navigate an economy on lockdown and the industry sheds 4.3 million jobs, highly trained manufacturing talent will be key as the U.S. works to maintain strong supply chains and eyes an economic comeback.

How can employers and training providers ignite the U.S. manufacturing sector and retool for the needs of the new landscape? Join us for a deep dive discussion with industry experts on the impact of COVID-19 on manufacturing and how it can chart a path forward.

4IR from Buzzword to Reality: Smart Factory Adoption Rates – Best Practices and Leading Technologies
IndustryWeek
July 23, 2019
Companies are making progress in implementing new technologies, but scaling and linking investment to value remains a work in progress.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution - 4IR - has been met with both enthusiasm and fence-sitting. While sentiments and experiences have been mixed, most business leaders are now approaching 4IR with a sense of measured optimism. While they recognize the potential business value advanced manufacturing technologies can present—particularly cloud computing, advanced analytics, robotics, the industrial internet of things (IIoT), 3D printing, virtual and augmented reality—they are still deliberating how and where to invest and balancing the hype with their own level of preparedness. Meanwhile, they’re also well aware of the significant changes 4IR will bring to a new manufacturing workforce—one that is increasingly becoming a hybrid of human and machine.

There is little doubt that 4IR adoption has hit the tipping point, despite the fact that today only around 20% of companies are implementing smart factory technologies at scale. Momentum is building, however, as evidenced by the fact that 73% of manufacturers are planning to increase their investment in smart factory technology over the next year and 70% citing adopting an IoT strategy as being moderately to extremely critical. IoT and robotics have made the most inroads, with 80% of manufacturers planning to deploy sensors in operations over the next three years and 65% saying they’ve deployed applied robotics in their operations over the past three years.

The No-Excuses Way for Manufacturers to Win in a Digital World
IndustryWeek
February 26, 2019
Doing digital right doesn’t mean you need to become the next Amazon, Netflix or Google -- or even the next Pitney-Bowes, whose shift to digital has reinvented the company. But it does mean you may need to change your ways to maximize the potential to drive business. You may think there are obstacles. But it’s not money. It’s not lack of time. It’s not lack of resources. It’s you. It’s your mindset about digital strategy. It’s time to fill the gaps -- and make those aspirations a reality. Let go of your fears and let’s get started.

PwC’s recent Digital IQ report reflects insights from over 2000 respondents in over 60 countries. Over 60% work in companies with revenues of $1 million or greater. Join this webinar to explore the four areas you must master to digitally succeed.

Transforming your Supply Chain to be Fit for Growth
PwC
February 11, 2019
Many companies are at early stages of supply chain transformation. In a recent webcast poll, participants told us they are tackling the fundamentals by upgrading supply chain planning and execution as well as data analytics.

Transforming Manufacturing for Growth: Gaining a Competitive Advantage with IoT
IndustryWeek
October 23, 2018
Industrial IoT is ushering in a new era of vastly improved performance in the world of supply chain management, production process and ‘smart factories’. The IIoT is helping companies improve productivity and safety while increasing engagement, differentiating their offering, and generating new revenue streams. Those leveraging IIoT technologies including cellular connectivity are far more efficient, productive and profitable than their non-connected counterparts—providing them a distinct competitive advantage.
