More production means more profit. It’s that simple. Things like unplanned downtime, changeover, underutilized capital equipment, quality issues and more can hinder a manufacturer’s ability to meet KPIs. With growing workforce challenges, cybersecurity risks and supply chain issues, how will you make your manufacturing production more efficient to reach your business goals?

Two of our experts, Karl Schmidt, Information Solutions Architect, and Scott Larson, Smart Manufacturing Business Consultant, address the productivity challenges manufacturers face, how to identify potential productivity issues, and how to address them with smart solutions. You’ll hear about use cases like: 

  • Addressing variation, overfill, waste and rework
  • Reducing unplanned downtime
  • Managing capacity and throughput challenges
  • Overcoming workforce challenges related to a difficult labor pool, competency, and workflow
