AWS Manufacturing and Industrial IoT Web Day | Implementing the Smart Factory session

Implementing the Smart Factory

Ask any executive and they will tell you that they see smart factories as a competitive advantage that helps to lower costs and drive value. Yet, nearly two out of three manufacturers report no progress on smart factory initiatives that they overwhelmingly point to as their main driver of near-term competitiveness. Join our panel discussion on the benefits of implementing smart factories, the challenges, lessons learned and how they are leveraging cloud and microservices architectures to accelerate their Smart Factory journey.

Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit | AI in Manufacturing and Industrial IoT sessions

1) Industry Innovations: AI Powered Robotics

Reinventing the shop floor to meet today’s demands

Advances in technology, including robotics, big data, machine learning, AI and IoT have substantially improved factory production since then. This session will shed insight on robotics trends that are driving the evolution of manufacturing automation and explore how robots could be used to meet our production needs during the remote-work nature of a pandemic – a capability no longer considered “optional”.

Participants:Paul Wellener, Industrial Products & Construction Leader, Deloitte United States

2) The conversion of Industrial IoT (IIoT) with e-commerce platforms

The online world of contactless commerce could be bolstered in ways that reshape consumer behaviour forever. One of the key technologies for industries to tackle the global pandemic is the Internet of Things (IoT) and its integration with e-commerce platforms. COVID-19 has caused a drastic shift in customer purchasing behaviour; forcing most companies to establish an e-store. It is important for manufacturer’s today to leverage the increasing preference of consumers to purchase online and reflect the purchasing patterns to predict and plan future production requirements in order for the business to thrive.
