8:40 am - 9:00 am Keynote: Industry 4.0 “Natural Selection”: Stagnation Is Not An Option

Whether or not you have joined the Industry 4.0 race for innovation, one thing is clear – stagnation and inaction are not an option. Regardless of the size of your organization and digital strategy maturity (or lack thereof), you simply can’t afford sitting back and watching how the fourth industrial revolution plays out for the rest of the manufacturing world. In order to secure your competitive edge and meet shifting customer expectations, you must start innovating today. Otherwise, you are risking being left out in this game of evolution and natural selection.

Sultan Aziz is a globally recognized Industry 4.0 expert who will help you make sense of the evolving Industry 4.0 trends and what you should be doing today in order to become a manufacturer of tomorrow.

10:40 am - 11:00 am Case Study: A Model-Based Digital Thread - Connecting Manufacturing with Design

The industrial design, engineering and manufacturing process in the aerospace sector, despite advancing by leaps and bounds in the last 20 years, lags in innovation when compared to other industries such as integrated circuit design and manufacturing. The industrial manufacturing process is still based on a largely manual system of design handoffs with a lack of information flow both through and between steps. Recently, several companies and tool providers have focused on improving the model-based handoff from engineering to manufacturing. While this is a key step toward closing the handoff gap, advancing to the next step in design productivity will require the industry to close the gap between design and manufacturing with a more sophisticated level of data, modeling and analysis of the physical objects and the manufacturing processes. This level of modeling is already used for additive manufacturing and needs to be replicated for the entire set of production processes. Moving toward a virtual factory will allow engineers to simultaneously evaluate the design and manufacturing options earlier in the development process. This concurrent process lets engineers evaluate and optimize the product early, and continuously learn, anticipate and improve performance before moving into the real world with physical production. This codesign process saves time and reduces costs by preventing many unnecessary iterations. Most importantly, the process can uncover added insight that leads to better products overall. 

In this 20-minute presentation, Alberto Ferrari will provide an overview of the opportunities, technical and cultural challenges and current initiatives to pursue this ‘Virtual Factory’ dream as part of the future of model-based engineering in the industrial sector.

The digitalization of the manufacturing floor is not an easy task to begin with, but you are in double-trouble if your organization just got bought out or is in the process of acquiring another company – it inevitably adds to the complexity of transformation challenges and creates extra steps to climb on your path to Industry 4.0 success.

Join our panelists for a walk-through of their recent M&A lessons learned and unanticipated things you probably haven’t yet considered but should be on the lookout for. Hands-on recommendations focus on:

- Succeeding in undergoing  a significant infrastructure change and achieving systems interoperability across all facilities
- Driving the universal adoption of Industry 4.0 strategy and cultural change across all locations
- Making sure your cross-functional teams can clearly communicate across the globe
- Warranting regulatory compliance throughout the M&A process

Track B: The Next Stage In Data Analytics and Digital Maturity – Achieving The Goal Of Data-Driven Manufacturing

2:25 pm - 2:45 pm The Call To Action For Digital Transformation - Why It’s Time To Put Our Pencils Down
These days, most manufacturers are focusing in on digital transformation, but many lack a clear roadmap to success. Some struggle with how to get started, others grapple with important concerns around network infrastructure and security, while still others ponder how to leverage a seemingly overwhelming amount of data. We’re all eager to achieve the game-changing results that await us as we change how our products are designed, manufactured and supported.  But getting there can be an intense journey that will most assuredly require a steadfast vision and a commitment to persevere. John will discuss why many initial efforts are slow to deliver meaningful results and how to ultimately realize the significantly impactful outcomes a comprehensive digital transformation should deliver. One well-known quote advises: “Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and, suddenly, you’re doing the impossible.”
