About the presentation
Meeting your environmental goals can be daunting. Lean manufacturing focuses on creating the best bottom line, but a sustainability strategy can create large overhead costs. While these two seem to be in conflict, they lead to the same goal: eliminating the potential for wasted resources. In fact, a robust sustainability strategy can save a manufacturing plant more money long-term despite early costs. Sustainability programs are now part and parcel of maintaining a strategic advantage over competitors and seizing opportunities for increases in market share. Throughout the last decade, global manufacturers have relied on Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to help them increase efficiency, reduce energy usage, and reduce manufacturing costs via optimized production programs. These programs improve environmental operations and also help companies introduce products to market faster and more efficiently. The move toward a sustainable manufacturing atmosphere is multifaceted, complex, and contains a variety of challenges unique to each manufacturer. Efficient industrial automation processes not only simplify the transition toward a green production environment but also unlock new and innovative opportunities for manufacturers to further modernize and optimize their industrial automation infrastructure. Join us for an enlightening discussion about why preventative maintenance matters, examples of real-life savings from manufacturers just like you have found by focusing on energy efficiency, how to find out if an energy-efficient climate control program could qualify you for a local rebate program, and simple ways to reduce your own energy usage and costs.
