Be the Change Agent!
If you are like many manufacturers, you’ve nearly exhausted the savings to be had from modern process improvement methods. To tap into any significant savings, you have to up your game by applying advanced analytic method to the terabytes of data available on the factory floor. Whether you call it AI, machine learning, or deep learning, applied properly, this technology has the ability to make you the agent of change.
Join us on January 8th to learn how several manufacturers have achieved strong business outcomes for their digital transformation initiatives by:
- Improving customer value with production insights provided by machine learning
- Using production line telemetry to reduce operational expense and improve OEE
- Applying deep learning to improve the accuracy of your machine vision quality inspection systems
Hosted at Microsoft, you and your industry peers will have a unique opportunity to see these capabilities in action and hear stories of transformation success with other manufacturing companies, Mariner and Microsoft industry leaders.
We look forward to seeing you there!
