2017 Theme - Smart Manufacturing

SMART MANUFACTURING transforms traditional factories from cost centers into profit centers that progressive businesses will strategically invest in to increase sales.

Traditional factories are cost centers. They make more and more stuff – while increasingly cutting costs. Consumers love buying all this affordable stuff. But to keep up with their demands, businesses have had to lean production to bare bones. Some relocated to lower cost regions, and others even totally outsourced their production capabilities.

A new era of 21st century Smart Manufacturing will optimize plants and supply networks by starting to transform them into profit centers. Progressive businesses have already begun gathering information and manufacturing intelligence by investing in highly automated and IT-driven production. This manufacturing intelligence enables the factory floor to become a profitable innovation centre. Supply Chains will be digitally driven and highly proactive.

Early adopters foresee a smart manufacturing model flexible enough to respond to global consumer demand and bring to life innovations such as the electric-powered car or other game-changers. Flexible factories can be more quickly reprogrammed to provide faster time to market today and the next generation of mass customization. Smart manufacturing marries information, technology and human ingenuity to bring about a rapid revolution in the development and application of manufacturing intelligence to every aspect of business. It will fundamentally change how products are invented, manufactured, shipped and sold. It will improve worker safety and protect the environment by making zero emissions, zero-incident manufacturing possible. It will also enable an interconnected, efficient global industrial ecosystem.

Imagine highly intelligent, agile, information-driven factories that can respond rapidly to change. Envision connected sensor networks and advanced data analytics, and entirely new, customized smart products and services. Realize new potential for leadership and enterprise value.

Smart Manufacturing promises to touch every function and aspect of the manufacturing enterprise - from the plant floor, to leadership roles and business models.
