Topic Track: Integrated Industries 

Session Topic: Trends in Manufacturing

The way manufacturers do business is constantly changing, and those who adapt have the competitive advantage.

Right now, substantial changes are taking place:

  • Software in the cloud, including ERP
  • Industry 4.0
  • Mobile devices are everywhere – including the manufacturing floor
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • 3D printing
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Predictive Analytics (Big Data)

Each trend will have an impact on manufacturers, whether a 10-person shop or 10,000-person shop. This presentation will extrapolate on each trend in some detail and explain the advantages of having an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system and how it can help address these issues.
