Auto Industry X – Process

Friday October 30, 2020  |  10:00 – 11:00 AM

Change is hard. Disruptive change is harder. Successful digital transformation requires more than a good strategy and adequate funding. It takes focus on process. Change Agents and Change Managers often drive successful Industry X implementations. This webinar will identify key characteristics for successful Industry X implantation.

AV Safety: What’s New?

Monday, November 2, 2020  |  1:00 – 2:00 PM

The COVID-19 pandemic and the health concerns around it put some restriction on AV-related activities around the work. But it does not mean that the AV technology development efforts have been stopped. While some companies have been active in using AVs to deliver food and groceries as well as medical supplies to citizens and healthcare centers, others have been working hard to make the future of AVs safer. Join us on November 2nd, 2020, at 1 pm Eastern Time for a conversation around the safety aspect of CAVs.

Auto Industry X – People

Friday, November 13, 2020  |  10:00 – 11:00 AM

Industry X links the operational technology (OT) used in manufacturing with the information technology (IT) systems used to manage the rest of the business. Industry X will require employees working within these systems to expand their job scope, learn new things, and coordinate with new people. Industry X is truly an opportunity to enable and empower the workforce. However, the transition will be as challenging as it is powerful. This webinar will highlight the merging of OT and IT skills in manufacturing

Auto Industry X – Technology and Data

Friday, December 4, 2020  |  10:00 – 11:00 AM

Data drives Industry X, but Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the co-pilot. Manufacturing operations are creating far more data than is ever used. The underlying technologies that create, process, transmit, and store data have continued to advance at seemingly exponential rates while business processes have remained basically the same. Technologies and processes that capture, transmit, store, and analyze data are being implemented now. Making decisions based on that data is the next frontier. This session will explore how manufacturing companies are using data to make a difference.
