What smart factories are all about and how you can get started

Smart factories, digital transformation (DX), Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI). You see these buzzwords everywhere but what do they actually mean? If you’re unsure of how you might benefit from these technologies, you’re not alone.

Though DX may seem overwhelming, you may not realize you’ve already begun your journey by knowing your pain points. But knowing your pains isn’t enough. You need to take action.

65% of manufacturers believe that competitors with smart factories will steal market share through better pricing and strong customer service. That’s the bad news. The good news is that only 16% of manufacturers have a digital strategy in place. You can start small and work within your budget but you can’t afford not to take that step.

Join Jonathan Gross of Pemeco Consulting and Dale Kehler of SYSPRO Canada in Part 1 of our 3-part series as they take a dive into the real world examples and results that will help you understand what DX is and how it can apply to your operations.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  1. A definition of Industry 4.0 and digital transformation
  2. Industry 4.0 statistics you can use to support your business case
  3. Case studies on how companies like yours are implementing their digital strategies
  4. A best-practices methodology to develop your strategy and execution plan
