Implementing Industry 4.0: Leading Change in Manufacturing and Operations

Dates:

In the race to implement new manufacturing technologies and systems, such as the Industrial Internet of Things, it is often forgotten that factories and operations already have systems in place—and the inner workings of these systems tend to actively resist any change forced upon them. This new program is designed to help manufacturing executives and frontline leaders implement technological change at their companies while developing a company culture that puts people first.

  • Jairo W: Excellent presentations and much knowledge that I am able to take back and put to work - as well as very interesting colleagues. This is not a program about the techniques of Industry 4.0 (although they are also discussed) but rather about how to successfully go about taking advantage of what Industry 4.0 has to offer in order to support the overall strategy of the company.

  • Nilanjan N: At the beginning I was not very clear how the sessions taken by Dr. Carrier and Dr. Mannen are related. As we progressed through the course schedule different pieces started coming together. By end of the training we could see different strategic and tactical pieces any senior executive should consider for Industry 4.0 implementation. The panel discussion with GE Predix and PTC ThingWorx also brought the ecosystem perspective and helped in broadening our understandings.
