8 Technologies That Will Disrupt Your Manufacturing Business

Presented by Will Healy III 

Technology is a disruptive force, we can see it in our personal lives with mobile devices, ecommerce, social media and even in our smart cars and wearables. In manufacturing, organizations that have evolved with technology over the last 5 decades have seen prosperous growth and those that have been unwilling or seemingly unable to invest have struggled. It does feel recently that new technology is bombarding manufacturers faster than ever with news popping up about some new incredible technology that is being used to dramatically improve productivity and enhance the bottom line! So how do you read through the incredible amount of noise in the market and on social to make sure that you invest in the right things that will actually help your business? In this high-pace session, we will discuss eight technologies that are actively disrupting manufacturers today from large corporations to small businesses. We will discuss a simple plan for bringing new and disruptive technology into the plant and how to minimize the cultural shockwaves that any change and especially new technology make.
