About this EventWe are opening the new TechTalks season with a panel discussion on an increasing role of interconnected technologies and the way they make manufacturing become faster, better and stronger.
Our speakers from manufacturing, an IT-startup and medtech will share their experience in implementing technologies in their specific areas of business - what did they start with, which initiatives worked best and how do they benefit from the digital transformation.
Usually, the term “interconnected technologies” refers to the intelligent networking of machines and machine-operated processes, that link machines and product for generating more effective productivity - with the decreasing level and necessity of human involvement. These networks quickly get, analyze, transmit data and even autonomously make decisions. Those processes became so extensive and crucial, that some even mark it as a new era of industrialization and call it the Fourth Industrial Revolution or simply “Industry 4.0”.
But how does it change the face of manufacturing and industrial world and are these processes applicable to your business? Is it more about great opportunities or great challenges, and what are the main pitfalls on the way to automation and digitization?
Joining RMCSoft in the discussion are:
