Artificial Intelligence is appearing in more and more Manufacturing establishments. Most Manufacturers know that AI is potentially relevant to some part of their business, and could potentially help solve tough business issues, but the definition of broader specific use cases can be allusive. Many of today’s best success stories focus on solving very “pinpoint” problem situations. This session will discuss best practices and use case examples of where companies are deploying AI and how they are making the most of their investments in what are becoming continuous improvement projects. The session will also focus on new areas of investment that we are seeing manufacturers pursuing, through expanding the impact of AI with better synchronization of planning, logistics and improvements in asset reliability. Finally the session will explore how AI is bringing people, processes, and analytics together by incorporating intelligent technologies at both the hardware and software level to expand the speed or predictability, integration of preemptive action and overall ROI.
