Artificial Intelligence In Manufacturing: Real World Success Stories and Lessons Learned

September 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

For manufacturers, artificial intelligence can be a game changer. Greater efficiencies, lower costs, improved quality and reduced downtime are just some of the benefits to be gained.

This technology is not only for large manufacturers. High-value, cost-effective artificial intelligence solutions are more accessible than many smaller manufacturers realize.

In this webinar, you will hear use cases featuring several manufacturers including Precision Global, Metromont, Rolls-Royce, JTEKT and Elkem Silicones. While artificial intelligence projects improved equipment uptime, increased quality and throughput, and reduced scrap – resulting in healthier bottom lines and increased profits – they came with lessons learned. Hear these companies’ stories including key drivers for success and the potential pitfalls encountered along the way.

Agenda:

  • The difference between artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • The role artificial intelligence plays in industrial and process transformation
  • How to identify appropriate artificial intelligence solutions for your business needs
  • Business use cases that deliver value to small and medium-sized manufacturers
