1:05 PM Industry 4.0: Physical Meets Digital on the Factory Floor

What is Industry 4.0? And how are these collection of cutting-edge technologies shaping advanced manufacturing as we know it? The power of Industry 4.0 is not found within the individual technologies, but rather, how they can be used together to create disruption. Learn how Michigan manufacturers are connecting the physical and digital worlds to streamline production and develop better products at a lower cost. In this presentation, Tom Kelly, executive director and CEO of Automation Alley, Michigan’s Industry 4.0 knowledge center, discusses the importance of recognizing the power of Industry 4.0, the implications of the digital economy and how to act on it. Giving past and present industry examples, Kelly outlines the opportunities and challenges associated with Industry 4.0 and how companies can capitalize on its potential by changing corporate culture, finance and technology.
