In this two-part webinar, learn the fundamentals of Smart Manufacturing and the importance of operational applications. We will focus on the production side of the business, from two distinct perspectives.

First, Rick Earles from Team NEO will offer some basic information, but stress that you don’t need to be the expert. Choose the right solution provider as your partner and they will guide you through the process.

Then, Kurt Schron, Director of Finance & Analytics, will share how Jergens, Inc. explored the fundamentals, selected a pilot project, and used the project definition to select a solution provider to implement a smart manufacturing project.

Both sides agree that the value of implementing a Smart Manufacturing strategy can be immense.

  • Increase overall throughput
  • Reduce scrap/rework
  • Reduce machine outages
  • Reduce accidents and near misses

Find out what Smart Manufacturing can do for your business!
