Do you want to deepen your understanding of what a collaborative model of innovation can do for your company?
Do you need to sharpen your company’s hiring policies to attract next-generation workers?
Are you seeking to take current plant floor efficiency programs to a higher level?
If your answer to any of these questions is yes, prepare now to attend the exclusive series of Think Tanks at the 11th annual Manufacturing Leadership Summit, June 3-4, Carlsbad, CA, and join other leading senior executives to take a deep dive into the intricacies of these vital industry trends.
In addition to deep dives into collaborative innovation, new millennials, and improving operational excellence, the Summit also features Think Tanks on how 3D printing can really be a manufacturing game-changer, how to employ cybersecurity measures to effectively secure your business and manufacturing eco-system, whether robots can fully automate your factory, how you can harness the power of the Internet of Things in both production and smart products, and ways you can make your supply chain more responsive and resilient for the future.
The eight concurrent Think Tanks at this year’s Summit will be held over the two days of the conference, beginning on Wednesday, June 3 and continuing on Thursday, June 4. Each Think Tank will be one hour in length, moderated by a member of the Manufacturing Leadership Council’s research and editorial team, and facilitated by experts from among Summit sponsors as well as the industry at large.
In addition to the deep dive Think Tanks, the Summit conference program also focuses on critical industry trends such as Manufacturing 4.0, with a high-level panel discussion featuring four of the industry’s leading thinkers on smart manufacturing; an exclusive talk by Ford Executive Vice President of Global Manufacturing, John Fleming, on the new all-aluminum F-150 truck; key insights from Dow Chemical Vice Chairman James Fitterling on the new era of collaboration in manufacturing; and a talk by Lockheed Martin Space Systems Vice President of Production, Dennis Little, on the development of the company’s advanced “Digital Thread” end-to-end digitization strategy.
Don’t get left behind. The manufacturing industry is at a turning point on its journey to Manufacturing 4.0. Find out more about “The New Era of Creative Manufacturing” at this year’s industry-leading event.
