Automation Alley’s 2021 Technology in Industry Report Reveal Set for June 22

May 21, 2021

Automation Alley, Michigan’s Industry 4.0 knowledge center and a World Economic Forum Advanced Manufacturing Hub (AMHUB) for North America, will launch its 2021 Technology in Industry Report digitally on June 22, alongside a virtual panel discussion at 11 am EDT, featuring leaders from industry, academia and government who will discuss the urgent need for solutions that spur further manufacturing resilience and innovation.

The Technology in Industry Report provides a deep dive into Industry 4.0 adoption challenges, opportunities, use cases and action items for industry leaders. Cases studies in the 2021 report look at technology companies such as Omron, PTC, Verizon and Comcast, and showcase how each company helps manufacturers at different levels of Industry 4.0 sophistication implement digital solutions. Considering the impact COVID-19 has had on the manufacturing world, this report, and the discussions around it, are critical.

“The rapid pace of technological advancement, unprecedented supply-chain disruptions and increased resource constraints place added pressure on the global manufacturing ecosystem to create resilient and innovative production systems to remain competitive and achieve sustainable growth,” says Tom Kelly, Automation Alley executive director. “The 2021 Tech in Industry Report and the virtual reveal present a platform around which we can hold a solutions-oriented discussion with advocates in the trenches of Industry 4.0.”

The panel discussion, moderated by Kelly, includes Haley Stevens, U.S. Congresswoman; Sherif Marakby, executive vice president of research and development at Magna International; and Jeff Hall, senior director of technology and strategic sales at Omron.

Also, Pavan Muzumdar, Automation Alley chief operating officer, will be presenting at MetalForming magazine’s IoT Experience for Manufacturers, October 27-28 in Chicago, IL. In his presentation, Muzumdar will share information from the 2021 Technology in Industry Report and also explain how small and manufacturers can prepare to manage Industry 4.0 disruption.
