If you've ever programmed a robot, CNC, or pick-and-place machine, you've experienced them doing exactly what you told them to, but not what you wanted them to do. The current state of automating these machines is similar to programming in assembly language. While it's better than bare metal machine code, the improvement is minimal.

Join us to walk away with:

  • How to avoid common missteps when automating at small scale
  • How to reduce the fixed costs of automating processes
  • How to use tools of mass-production at any scale
  • Factor hardware into the overall automation process

David Mayer
Senior Technical Project Manager | Fictiv

David Mayer has been on the Operations Team here at Fictiv for the past 2 years. As a Senior Technical Project Manager, he focuses on managing our production of CNC machined parts in the US. He holds a Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University. As an engineer, he loves to take things apart to see what makes them tick, and then use the pieces to make something that ticks faster, longer, and louder.
