Giving Super Powers to the People on the Shop Floor
Natan Linder, Tulip
Just like we all use tools like computers and mobile phones to augment our everyday lives, we need technology that gives power to the people on shop floors. Manufacturing technologies like automation, robotics, injection molding, machining, and 3D printing may produce parts, but it’s people who ensure efficient operations and put those parts together to form cohesive, useful products. This session explores the implications of the Internet of Things for digital manufacturing by introducing an intelligent operating system for the digital shop floor, enabling real-time collaboration, integration, and analytics that bring people and machines together to ensure products move on time and on budget.
