Made Smarter - Innovation Network: Flexible Manufacturing

Deploying technologies and processes can make manufacturing more flexible. By adopting flexible manufacturing processes, manufacturers can adapt to changes in the type and quantity of the product being manufactured. Machines and systems can be changed to manufacture a variety of parts and deal with changing levels of production.  

This webinar will look into the deployment of technologies and processes that can make manufacturing more flexible to improve efficiencies and reduce costs.
