The factory of the future, machine learning, and digital twin are just a few of the terms that are popping up in the manufacturing sector’s path toward digital transformation. There are endless perspectives and definitions on these topics but very little on how to approach these as a strategy. “The Factory of the Future” digital panel, hosted by Librestream’s Neal Tomblyn and Dan Flynn, with Lockheed Martin’s Sr. Program Manager for Advanced Technology Solutions Corey Cook, will help explain the challenges aerospace manufacturers are currently facing, how they are meeting and solving these now and into the future, and some of the technologies that are helping to make it possible. This panel will help you understand:
- The challenges that modern aerospace manufacturing organizations are facing to meet the needs of today and tomorrow
- What to consider when implementing disruptive technologies such augmented reality (AR), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning
- How to “do” digital transformation – moving the needle from talk to action when it comes to creating the “factory of the future”
- Case study on best practices for implementing disruptive technologies
- Challenges, processes, and technologies driving the aerospace manufacturing of tomorrow
- Supply chain, worker shortage, and efficiency
- Digital transformation, Digital work instruction, Digital thread and Digital twins
- Augmented and mixed reality as tools for the factory and field expert of tomorrow
- Best practices for implementing factory of the future technology
- Satisfying the growing needs of customers related security, supply chain, uptime, and maintenance from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs)
