One thing is clear from the past 6 months: Manufacturing as we know it must change. In the wake of severe supply chain disruption caused by COVID-19, on the heels of a trade war with China, OEMs are seeking alternatives to the old way of doing things for a more resilient future. 

In fact, 87% of manufacturing leaders surveyed in Fictiv’s 2020 State of Manufacturing Report confirmed a high-priority digital transformation initiative and 99% declared that increasing supply chain resilience is a top focus. In contrast, however, only 14% reported a well-funded digital initiative and 81% are faced with difficulties finding digitization expertise.

What is the path forward?

Join us for an executive panel discussion with digital manufacturing experts and industrial robotics innovator, HEBI Robotics, to explore the quantifiable economic impact of Digital Manufacturing Ecosystems as a cost-efficient, low-risk bridge to digital transformation. Topics of discussion will include:

  • The importance of geographic diversity in a supply chain to avoid disruption -- and how to achieve this without ballooning supply chain management overhead
  • Hidden costs incurred by par-for-the-course quality issues and manufacturing delays and how to solve for this challenge
  • How to increase procurement manager capacity to reduce overall supply chain management costs
