This webinar will discuss the connected technologies used to monitor real-time knowledge including the health and availability of all IIoT assets. Experts will provide an understanding about how capturing data and utilizing information will drive actions that keep assets running at optimal utilization, as well as minimizing the failures and unexpected down time.
Establishing a manufacturing command center provides visibility of all connected assets and ability to response to change in production plan based on the asset’s availability instead of traditional MRP plans, which can become obsolete if assets availability changes. These command centers can deliver up to 40-60 % asset utilization improvement in a typical aerospace manufacturing environment and millions of dollars in capital avoidance as productions are required to ramp up.
Ramping production from the downturn of internal production and supply chain response relies upon the skilled labor rehire and retraining success. Panelists will discuss how the successful integration of an IIoT strategy will lessen the effects of inconsistent skilled labor by implementing technology, which plays a critical role to mitigate risks and make the infrastructure more agile and quick to response.
