Paired with an ever-growing talent shortage, this lack of operational technology has left many Aerodef manufacturers small and large making decisions mostly on gut instinct alone, leading to remarkable inefficiencies that affect every component of a company’s operation from significant downtime and production losses. With mounting competition and increasing pressure on pricing, it’s never been more important for Aerodef manufacturers to deliver the best product faster than ever, meaning help is needed and it’s needed it right now.
Enter Industry 4.0, the silver bullet to solve manufacturing’s problems right? Not exactly. In fact, 81% of IIoT implementations fail (McKinsey, 2020) due to the time-consuming and prohibitively expensive nature of implementation and deployment.
Organizations are now realizing that data needs to be used constructively and appropriately enterprise-wide– even by non-technical end-users – to make informed decisions quickly and uncover opportunities for the business to improve.

This session is designed for the manufacturer who is tired of inaction and is ready to start leveraging or accelerate their usage of these tools to make an impact on their bottom line right today and into the future.
