HMUSA 2022 Conference: How the 5G innovation platform is enabling the next generation of lean production

Discover the potential of 5G.

September 10, 2022

About the presentation
5G is much more than a network – it’s a platform for innovation with the ability to provide global scale and enable manufacturing use cases we haven’t even dreamed of. And through the adoption of 5G a new tool is introduced into the lean manufacturing toolbox – taking lean production into the age of digitalization. 

The limitless connectivity of 5G enables lean manufacturing processes through smart factories and the ability to take advantage of technologies such as automation, digital twins, artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), and the Internet of Things (IoT). The low latency, high reliability, and increased speed of 5G are essential to support emerging technologies such as process automation, remote monitoring, and collaborative robots.

5G also allows for higher flexibility, lower cost, and shorter lead times for factory floor production reconfiguration, layout changes, and alterations, which will result in significant production improvements. And the great thing is, 5G isn’t only a promise of the future, it’s already an enabler for existing ways of working when it comes to lean production.  

In this session, you’ll learn how 5G’s capacity to handle massive amounts of data with low latency supports lean methodologies in a powerful way, unlocking new value, and taking lean concepts beyond the factory.

Powered by AMT and managed by GIE Media, The IMTS 2022 Conference features 69 different sessions you won’t want to miss so register today. Focused on a range of topics that include process innovation, plant operations, quality/inspection, and automation, The IMTS 2022 Conference addresses improving productivity; improving part quality; and developing a stable, competent workforce to lower the cost of manufacturing in the United States and create new levels of market demand.
