Moments of extreme crisis in history have often triggered accelerated social and technical innovation – join us for a look ahead at what the future of manufacturing will look like as we emerge from the lockdown of our economies and explore what the ‘New Normal’ will look like for European manufacturing.
This online seminar features a number of specialists who will present on what changes to expect, and how you can prepare your business for them.
Companies will need more predictability and transparency across the whole chain: from mining to metals, parts to products. This will call for better inter-company integration at the data and process level.
Local sourcing will become even more important. Regional protectionism will be a factor we cannot ignore. As a result, we expect significant growth of on-demand, in-place manufacturing technologies such as: 3D Printing, Additive Manufacturing, and Robotization
Four expert speakers will discuss:
· The Era of New Normal: What Will it Look Like?
· Five Strategic Priorities for European Manufacturing Industries
· Transforming Data into Knowledge to Make Your Experts More Productive
· Insights – Data Service for Metals Processing in Post Pandemic Era
