Creating a human-centric industry 4.0: the importance of the worker in the factory

12th May 2021 | 1:00pm - 2:30pm ET
How digital transformation can create efficient, highly skilled front-line workers

A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by PTC

For many, industry 4.0 and digital transformation is about technology and operations. However, at the beginning, middle and end of each of these lines is a real person doing real work to get product into the hands of end users. Digital transformation impacts those shop floor workers often in a profound way by providing tools, data and instructions to be more effective and efficient. Ultimately these front-line workers are the support structure for bottom line business impact.

Join PTC for an executive roundtable discussion about how front-line workers have been the backbone for digital transformation in this unprecedented COVID era. You’ll explore how workers have adapted to new working conditions as a result of digitally enabled transformation initiatives and how companies can use digital transformation to improve efficiency up and down the manufacturing process.

Discussion Topics

What's the “new normal” on the shop floor? What are front-line workers dealing with because of COVID and how are they dealing with them?
What technological solutions have been the most impactful for them?
What's the best way to involve and engage the shop floor in digital transformation?
