How Michigan Can Win the Industry 4.0 Battle

Manufacturing is the crown jewel of Michigan’s industry leadership. But the seismic shift known as Industry 4.0 is challenging the way we make things. From global OEMs to small and medium-sized manufacturers throughout the supply chain, the smart technology revolution is disrupting business models and forcing companies large and small to retool and rebuild the way they do business. Michigan is poised to win the manufacturing marketplace as Industry 4.0 leaders, but only if it is viewed as a state-wide priority. Join us for this fireside chat to close out Integr8, focused on creating a stronger supply chain through integrated technology between OEMs, Tier 1 and other tiered suppliers.

How Michigan Can Win the Industry 4.0 Battle

Manufacturing is the crown jewel of Michigan’s industry leadership. But the seismic shift known as Industry 4.0 is challenging the way we make things. From global OEMs to small and medium-sized manufacturers throughout the supply chain, the smart technology revolution is disrupting business models and forcing companies large and small to retool and rebuild the way they do business. Michigan has the engineering smarts, the universities, the digital capabilities and the manufacturing prowess and history of success that makes other states — and nations — pay attention. Michigan is poised to win the manufacturing marketplace as Industry 4.0 leaders, but only if it is viewed as a state-wide priority.

Join Integr8 keynote speaker Helena Laurent, head of future of production for the World Economic Forum; Rodney Rusk, Industry 4.0 business leader for Bosch Rexroth; Carrie Uhl, vice president of purchasing and supply chain for Magna International; and Automation Alley’s CEO and Executive Director Tom Kelly for a fireside chat on how Michigan can win the global Industry 4.0 battle by creating a stronger supply chain through integrated technology between OEMs, Tier 1 and other tiered suppliers.

I’m in IT architecture and infrastructure. It was great getting to see some of the state of the art manufacturing techniques and how IT can be prepared to support. The cybersecurity and connected vehicle talk was very interesting and robust too.
