What separates the manufacturing leaders from the followers when it comes to successfully leveraging technology to improve the business? It’s not the budget, the size of the team, or even the profitability of the company. It’s the people. Based on a survey of hundreds of manufacturers, Plex and LNS Research will showcase how C-level executives, plant managers, and IT leaders should approach industrial transformation and technology deployment to support the workforce of the future and succeed in today’s increasingly turbulent manufacturing environment.

Operational Excellence Extends to the Value Chain
Thu Mar 12 14:00:00 UTC 2020 - Thu Mar 12 15:00:00 UTC 2020 Webinar
A common manufacturing challenge companies face is finding practical ways to gain true end-to-end visibility across the value chain. Everything from limited visibility, to miscommunications with suppliers, to “gut-feeling” planning, and lack of actionable data from the shop floor all have a major impact on cost, quality, and customer satisfaction. What if there’s a way to extend operational excellence from start-to-finish? Join this webinar to see what becomes possible when you take control and connect the entire value chain for reduced risk, improved on-time delivery and greater customer satisfaction.
Operational Excellence Isn't Limited to the Shop Floor
Tue Mar 17 14:00:00 UTC 2020 - Tue Mar 17 15:00:00 UTC 2020 Webinar
Imagine a business environment where supply chain processes are digital from the onset - with your business system starting as the system of record and continuing to operate as a single source of truth for all of your data. Now, imagine that your shop floor processes are similarly connected. Orders are processed, materials are ordered, and jobs are synchronized with production capacity. Sound too good to be true? Attend this webinar to see how the Plex Smart Manufacturing Platform brings this vision into reality. Digitized processes - from shop floor to top floor - make it easy for you to achieve operational excellence, creating an environment of continuous improvement to drive your success into the future.
