Operations - Virtual Roundtable

Digitally Transforming Operations

18th November 2021 | 12:30pm - 2:00pm EST
How can we create maximum operational efficiency through digital transformation?

A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by Microdesk, inc.

If 2020 showed us anything, it was that the need for optimal efficiency in operations was crucial, and that reactive maintenance and unexpected downtime should be activities of the past. According to Deloitte, unplanned downtime costs industrial manufacturers an estimated $50 billion annually, and that figure was undoubtedly much higher in 2020.

But to understand how we get to a position of no downtime, we first must take a holistic look at our operations data, and drive performance improvements. Once done successfully, we can then digitally transform our operations to allow for streamlined data capture, informed decisions, predictive analytics and zero unplanned downtime.

So how can operations digitally transform successfully? How do we ensure we reduce unnecessary and unexpected downtime? And how can we utilize, improve, or change our legacy systems?

Join Microdesk Inc. and a select group of industry peers to share your own experiences and discuss best practice in this Meet The Boss roundtable.
