Preparing for the Future of Manufacturing: What’s Coming and What Parts We Play
Manufacturing is evolving at a rapid pace, and companies are either changing quickly or running the risk of being left behind. At the heart of this pivot to Industry 4.0 is the worker, needing a new set of support, skills, and tools in the rapidly changing environment. In this session, we discussed how forging cohesive partnerships across public, private, community and educational entities can reshape the landscape, benefiting both the manufacturing sector and our broader communities.
