LEVERAGING NEW TECHNOLOGIES TO MITIGATE WORKFORCE CHALLENGES
Using Automation Solutions to Solve Labor Shortages and Increase Productivity
Presenter: Daedalus Industrial
Most manufacturers will have read or heard about how modern technologies can help address the current labor and workforce challenges. But what are those technologies and, specifically, in which areas of the plant can they be rolled out? Which jobs or functions can they quickly, effectively, and economically be deployed?
Join SCMEP, Daedalus Industrial and partners for a deep dive into how workforce challenges can be mitigated through the adoption of a range of modern technologies. During this fun, informative, and interactive session, presenters will explore several technology-based solutions readily available to ease the strain on scarce labor resource in areas such as inspection, material handling, and machine loading/unloading.
We will also explore programs and sources of funding that are readily available to South Carolina manufacturers to determine the feasibility and potential return on investment of implementing technology.
Participants will be able to view the technologies in action and also have their questions answered by on-hand subject matter experts.
