The COVID-19 crisis taught the manufacturing industry many lessons—it demonstrated the power and importance of communication across the business and across the supply chain, it tested the ability of automation and IoT systems to maintain output and stability in unstable times, and it revealed just how essential the industry truly is.
The challenge now is to identify how these lessons will guide manufacturers into 2021 and into the post-COVID future.
To do this, we have assembled a panel of manufacturing leaders from across the industry who will discuss the short- and long-term impacts this pandemic will have on the people, processes, and technologies central to manufacturing recovery and success.
