Arlington, Va. January 13, 2020 – Eighty-six percent of manufacturers believe smart factory initiatives will be the main driver of manufacturing competitiveness within five years, according to a recent survey from the Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation (MAPI) and Deloitte. Connected technologies, systems, and supply chains power smart manufacturing, but the underlying data and analytics are enabling breakthrough gains in output, utilization, and labor productivity. Manufacturing leaders are convening in Orlando, Florida, February 12-13 to learn how to apply advanced analytics and unlock value from the surge of information technology (IT)/operational technology (OT) data at Power Analytics: The Data in Smart Manufacturing Conference.
