How Manufacturing Breakthroughs Really Happen

Monday 1:50 pm - 2:15 pm, Conference Room (Ballroom A)

Speakers: Tom Wujec

The ability to capture, store and analyze manufacturing data in new and meaningful ways has the power to transform middle market industrial companies. What’s often missing, however, is an organizational mindset of innovation — without which all the new technology and tools may disappoint.

In this session, technologist and design thinker Tom Wujec will chart how digital tools to capture and analyze data are being used in remarkable combinations to dramatically improve products, streamline processes, and forge new business models and growth platforms. He also will share three decades of experience working with design, engineering and leadership teams at manufacturing companies to explain how breakthroughs truly take place and how middle market companies can create a mindset of innovation.
