The Future Is Now: GPS, Drones, and Automated Manufacturing
It's no longer something that may happen in the future. It's happening now. It's happening fast. It's happening right here in the Bay Area.
PINC would like to invite you to an exciting evening. Wednesday, March 15, 2017 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM at GoPro Corporate Headquarters, San Mateo
Big changes are in the wind. For supply chain strategists, location based GPS sensor and drone technology are starting to look like important new tools for getting work done. Competitive pressures coupled with preliminary data on disruptive technologies points towards a need to at least consider where and how these near mainstream tools might fit into your supply chain strategy.
In addition, offshore manufacturing, in many cases, is no longer cost effective due to longer transit times and rising labor, material, and transportation costs. Manufacturing is essential to rebuilding our economy, but it is not simply a matter of reshoring. Today’s manufacturing is sophisticated, automated and involves less labor. So what is the best strategy?
Event Chair, Harry Cameau (Farbe Technik) has put together a very distinguished panel of presenters to discuss these potentially disruptive but exciting areas of innovation and ways to incorporate into your operations.
