With the lack of young people entering the manufacturing workforce, the silver tsunami of thousands of Boomers retiring out of manufacturing daily, and large percentages of equipment decades past their service life, manufacturers are scrambling to fill production demands, keep equipment running and digitalize their organizations.

Cultural changes are needed to be successful with much-needed smart manufacturing projects. In this panel we will discuss how manufacturers are building organizational readiness for scaling up their smart factory projects by:


  • Engaging with existing workers on upskilling and job satisfaction
  • Acting on diversity in meaningful ways & building excitement in the next generations
  • Embracing technology & digitalization efforts at all levels of the company
  • Bringing new life to existing equipment through retrofits and upgrades

Industry 4.0 and the fourth industrial revolution is the digital transformation of manufacturing/production.  Value creation of related industries and ecosystem alignment is an advanced approach to multi-enterprise B2B/EDI integration. This transformation also means integrating the “existing ecosystem” with the “new ecosystem” within the company. In this presentation, we will cover and share a unique approach to such ecosystem integration.

Recent development in digitalization, IIoT, and Industry 4.0 introduce (I)IoT devices, cloud connections, and connectivity to industrial assets at the factory floor. All these innovations bring great business value, but perhaps at the cost of reduced Cybersecurity? In this panel, we will discuss Cybersecurity in the smart factory ecosystem, where we aim to answer the following questions: 

- What is changing as a result of Industrial innovation, and what are the risks for Cybersecurity? 

- Could ISA99/62443 help to address these Cyber risks, and what specific area of the standard can help to define such concerns? 

- What could enterprises do today to remain cyber secure while applying innovative, IIoT and Industry 4.0 principles?

Our expert panel discussion will address whether there should be action on a strategy or execution level; what cybersecurity aspects should this strategy focus on; and, concrete takeaways for the audience to start cyber- securing!
