Digital Disruption: The Future Factory Transformation

Tuesday, November 14 Chicago, Illinois 60642 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM EST 0 Register here

Description

Digital technology is progressing at a rapid pace while both solutions and challenges continue to emerge and create further complexity for business owners. DMDII will host participants for a one day experiential learning workshop to explore how digital technologies impact the factory floor and are redefining how people, processes and equipment will function in the “Future Factory.”

Utilizing the Future Factory Platform to demonstrate key applications of digital manufacturing, DMDII will provide an introduction of digital tools into the manufacturing environment. DMDII will showcase companies and use cases across the production cycle in order to provide a wide variety of digital technology experiences that will be applicable to many organizations’ unique digital journey needs.

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

  • Introduce participants to digital tools in the manufacturing environment
  • Demonstrate technology use cases that are commercially available and have proven ROIs, which will
    allow participants to understand the solution, real life applications, and understand the financial
    implications of implementation
  • Provide proven, actionable approaches that help them solve problems and capitalize on new opportunities


REASONS TO ATTEND

The event will be an opportunity to be educated on trends and cutting-edge technologies, best practices and
hands-on learning in the ever-evolving digital manufacturing space.
MEANINGFUL CONTENT
+ Provide meaningful insight on a range of technologies allowing organizations to understand and calculate
ROI potential prior to implementation
+ Accelerate digital technology learnings through curated content that spans multiple functions across the
production cycle
+ Gain access to a digital technology assessment tool to determine your organization’s digital readiness
IMPACTFUL DEMONSTRATIONS
+ Learn practical, actionable solutions that can be immediately adopted into your organizations operations,
without implementing a disruptive change program
+ Exposure to easily pilotable, commercially available digital technologies
IMMERSIVE, RISK-FREE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
+ Applied learning through utilization of real
production equipment and experienced
technical professionals
ENGAGING ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION

The Future Factory Platform is a neutral sandbox for experimentation, testing, development and validation of next generation Digital Manufacturing solutions.
UI LABS is an innovation accelerator that leverages its network of hundreds of partners from universities +
industry to address problems too big for any one organization to solve. Our mission is to transform
industries, starting with manufacturing and infrastructure, using digital technology. We drive value for our
partners and help make the U.S. economy and workforce the most productive in the world.
In February 2014, UI LABS announced the formation of its first innovation platform, the Digital Manufacturing
and Design Innovation Institute (DMDII), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense, to transform
American manufacturing through the digitization of the supply chain. DMDII’s goal is to provide U.S. factories
with the tools, software and expertise they need to build things more efficiently, less expensively, and more
quickly, so they can win more business and bring jobs back to the United States. Learn more at uilabs.org.
