Digital Continuous Improvement Combats Complex Discrete Manufacturing Challenges

January 18, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Complex Discrete Manufacturers must be flexible to meet fluctuating demand, but also able to contain costs regardless of the immediate production environment. To combat these pressures, digital continuous improvement is more important than ever to the Industrial Transformation (IX) success of all complex discrete manufacturers. The Aerospace and Defense sector provides a great test market to show how IX efforts should be properly directed.

Attend this IndustryWeek-hosted webcast and learn how digital continuous improvement can empower your Industrial Transformation. LNS Research President and Principal Analyst Matthew Littlefield will examine Industrial Transformation (IX) within A&D and share key research insights on digital continuous improvement that apply to all complex discrete manufacturers.

Based on LNS Research’s recent studies on Digital Lean and Industrial Transformation (IX), in this webcast, you’ll discover:

  • How Aerospace and Defense manufacturers are faring compared to IX Leaders and what unique challenges they face.
  • What Industrial Transformation Leaders do differently than Followers within digital continuous improvement and how you can maximize your tools for success.
  • What all complex discrete manufacturers must consider within the wider context of IX when implementing lean tools and the importance of Data & MES.
  • Why A&D and all manufacturers need to cross the chasm of Industrial Transformation and how they can do so to improve their IX journey.

Plus, all attendees will receive a complimentary copy of LNS Research’s latest report on digital continuous improvement in complex discrete manufacturing.
