Episode Description

Manufacturers face immense pressure to operate more efficiently and sustainably. For many, the way forward will require a renewed focus on their Industry 4.0 vision, including smart factories running with intelligent processes. Plenty of challenges lie ahead— creating a risk-averse supply chain, significant labor shortages, continued globalization, significantly higher data using IoT technology and the ability to translate that data into actionable information, dramatic technological advances around Robotics, AI, and ML, and a shift in the Future of Work to more remote operations. Given all of this, companies need to build a kinetic environment that can evolve and innovate as needed. Join us as Deloitte manufacturing and transformation specialists discuss a blueprint for creating the built-to-evolve Smart Factory. Discover how you can use emerging technologies to build the Smart Factory and unlock value faster. Our conversation will also cover the role of ecosystem partnerships, the digitally empowered workforce, and how you can align Smart Factory solutions with your ESG goals, as well as a broader vision of sustainability and philanthropy. We’ll ask Deloitte’s Brenna Sniderman and Vadhi Narasimhamurti for their insights on The Kinetic Enterprise: Strategies for Enabling a Sustainable and Built-to-Evolve Smart Factory.
