Day One – Emerging from Pilot Purgatory to Realize Full Scale Implementation

Monday, August 31st, 2020

8:30 AM Opening Keynote: Busting Out of Pilot Purgatory – Facing the Fear of Implementation

As the Engineering Lead for Manufacturing Engineering within Airbus’ Silicon Valley-based Innovation Center, Acubed, Trevor Johnson will bring all his experience to bear on why so many companies get stuck in pilot purgatory, in some cases for years, and how you can avoid it. These bottlenecks are preventing manufacturers from realizing any real digitalization benefits and lead to stagnation of the existing tool set. Find out:


·    What these pilot bottlenecks are that cause companies to get stuck in pilot purgatory

·    The elements and benefits of proper pilot planning and goal setting to improve stakeholder accountability and accelerate success

·     How you can gain a competitive edge by identifying the positive markers that your product is ready to scale up to full implementation.
