Leveraging Virtual Technology to Accelerate Manufacturing Safety & Production

November 5, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


As manufacturing continues to chart the unprecedented path forward in the face of new realities and considerable disruption, the need to quickly address a very dynamic and evolving shop floor environment has never been clearer.

The dramatic pivots across all segments have invited us all to embrace discussion around resiliency, new normal, and of course “the next new normal.” The need for manufacturers to be able to address safety and production needs has become a key factor in determining which companies are able to respond well in the face of these dramatic headwinds.

Join us as we explore how to accelerate your digital transformation journey by providing your manufacturing workforce and management with proven virtual operations solutions and how virtual technologies can empower you to make mission critical decisions related to safety, production and quality by combining the virtual and the real (V+R).  Attendees will discover how the “virtual twin experience” allows you to visualize and optimize your factory during disruptions, and how to establish a full factory scan to create a working virtual twin for your facility.

With your virtual twin in place, we will display a range of key solutions that will directly address your critical manufacturing needs including:

  • Using virtual simulation to validate air quality concerns and better address factory floor safety
  • Utilizing the virtual twin experience to address social distancing requirements
  • Virtually assessing which different products you can produce to answer rapidly changing demand
  • Visualizing and validating new workflows, including new lines, and optimizing production scenario’s before creating them
