Exploring the concept of “the digital thread,” this presentation will explain how the application of digital technology will fundamentally transform the machine shop of the future. Learn how a machine shop’s value stream will increase significantly through advanced data acquisition and analysis, machining strategy development and machining process security.
- Realize the payoffs of data for end-to-end value stream efficiency through cyber-physical systems
- Understand how to implement digital technologies through all stages of the machining process
- Use data to provide insight to your operation and make real-time adjustments
Why Is It Important?
Globalization, urbanization and changing demographic trends bring challenges to the manufacturing industry. But these trends also bring opportunities for digitalization to increase levels of automation, reduce waste and improved cost and quality control. To remain competitive, today’s manufacturers need to identify and remove key sources of waste along the machining value chain.
