Webinar series – Smart Factory Transformation

19 November, 2021

Practical insights into digitising your manufacturing operations

Industry 4.0 is transforming the way companies make products. State-of-the-art technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), cloud computing, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), advanced analytics and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are opening up fantastic potential for businesses to boost efficiency, agility and quality and gain competitive advantages. But what’s the best way of transforming a factory into a smart factory? What’s the right mix of digital tools and applications for your unique manufacturing operations? And how can you cut through the hype and invest in smart factory solutions that really add measurable value?

In a new webinar series on smart factory transformations, experts from PwC are joining forces with representatives from Microsoft and other leading companies to discuss key aspects of Industry 4.0 – and share real-world examples of how to successfully digitise and automate your manufacturing processes end-to-end. The series of six live webinars started on 13 October and will take place on a monthly basis.

Upcoming webinars

Looking ahead, we’re going to cover one key aspect of smart factory transformation each month. Topics will include future trends, case studies for implementation, technical and business-related considerations of architecture and scalability, as well as effective use of AI in manufacturing. We’ll also spend a few moments introducing PwC Factory Intelligence, which combines PwC’s in-depth expertise to enable our clients to successfully digitise their factories including their business and operational processes.
