EH856B - How to Get a Full Digital Thread with 30 Year Old Equipment?

Session Description

There is a big push to go digital. Designing, testing, and troubleshooting digitally before investing resources in hardware, labor, and machine time, in reality, can greatly cut cost and save time. However, where do you begin? Case studies can be helpful but are specific to each application. Unless the production line is built from scratch engineers need to figure out how integration will affect production and what return on investment it will yield after commissioning. In addition, while senior engineers or executives that make buying decisions often have years of experience, they might not have worked with new technology or seen a classroom in years. This session will talk about the first steps to going digital, how to work within multiple levels of a company to advance useful technology, and how to engage with continuous learning and talent acquisition to harbor and incubate the skills necessary to advance digital manufacturing.
