MFGx Founder Craig Scott and Senior Sales Account Executive Craig Sorgi participated in the Industry 4.0 AMHUB roundtable, hosted by Automation Alley and the World Economic Forum (WEF). Industry leaders participated in the April 27 event to discuss “Efficiency, Resiliency & Agility with Smart Manufacturing.”
Industry 4.0 Challenges Addressed
Efficiency, Resiliency & Agility with Smart Manufacturing
The team at Automation Alley had 3 takeaways to share after the roundtable, and we couldn’t agree more.
- Culture: You can’t implement new technologies successfully without first addressing talent needs
- Finance: Find your ROI and start small
- Technology: Digital transformation means adopting a software-based business model
All three of these points resonate with our team. We’ve seen how much time and money manufacturers spend to deploy cloud enterprise software and all of the bolt-ons needed to personalize its performance. That’s why we developed a no-code, low-code, pro-code solution that was easy to scale and could be maintained by virtually anyone — even people without traditional IT skills.
If you want to learn more about the Fuuz applications platform, Craig Scott gave a fantastic explanation of Industry 4.0 connectivity and why you need a platform to achieve it during our April webinar.
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to Industry 4.0 for manufacturers. Events like Automation Alley’s roundtable are critical for bringing the industry together to collaborate, innovate and grow. Automation Alley, WEF’s highly regarded Advanced Manufacturing Hub (AMHUB) for Michigan, has successfully built a forum where industry, academia and government can come together to discuss advanced manufacturing technology within the context of Industry 4.0 and smart factories.
MFGx is proud to support both Automation Alley and manufacturers across Michigan and around the world as they pursue digital transformation. If you’d like to learn more about the topics we discussed during the roundtable, Automation Alley has an excellent recap available.
