Lean, cobots, robots, and automation: can they all work together?

November 15, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Perhaps you’ve recently embarked on a digital transformation within your organization. If so, you’ve most likely heard of the promise of bots, robots, cobots, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. Automation has been with us for some time and still carries the promise of making tasks happen better, faster, and cheaper.

Where does Lean fit into this new world? Will Lean go away? Or will it be needed more than ever? Come explore this topic as we take a glimpse at how these technologies and mindsets might interact to achieve the best result.


The session will be led by Brent White, Purdue MEP Consultant, alongside Purdue MEP Lean experts. This session is being hosted by IMC sister MEP.

Brent has over 30 years of experience in applying both Lean and Six Sigma. He also has over ten years of experience focused on the application of Lean in areas outside of manufacturing (sales, marketing, finance, etc.). Please join us for some concrete ideas, great discussion, and an opportunity to interact with industry leaders. You’ll walk away with solid ideas to determine what type of automation is best suited for your Lean and continuous improvement initiatives.
