Based on extensive consultation with more than 500 senior executives and associate members of the MLC and Board of Governors, the latest Critical Issues agenda is designed to help manufacturers align their thinking and practices for a successful journey to Manufacturing 4.0.
"The future of manufacturing is not only going to be full of new opportunities for strong growth based on the intelligent use of new cyber/physical technologies, such as the Internet of Things, Big Data and the Cloud, but it is also going to be an exciting place to work for a new generation of employees," said David R. Brousell, co-founder of the MLC. "To enable this vision to become a reality, manufacturing executives need a strategic roadmap to transform their businesses for the digital era. The MLC's Critical Issues agenda brings both focus and clarity to the mission of Manufacturing 4.0."
"Our future cyber/physical environment will be based on connectivity -- connected products, connected supply chains, and connected factories," added John Fleming, a member of the Manufacturing Leadership Council's Board of Governors and former Executive Vice President of Global Manufacturing and Labor Affairs at Ford Motor Co. "The Council's leadership is needed to develop the roadmaps and the skilled people necessary to ensure that we can fully utilize the 'Industrial Internet of Things' and deliver further progress on the key metrics of safety, quality and cost efficiency."
