The “fourth era of industrial revolution” promises to offer significant advantages to manufacturing and operations. It also provides the opportunity to repeat the same systemic errors that plagued the previous three. Join us for a complimentary webinar:
April 12, 2017
12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. EDT
Speaker: MIT Sloan Senior Lecturer John Carrier
Followed by a live Q&A on Facebook
Dr. Carrier will discuss the seven most common systemic errors your company is likely to make when attempting to integrate the Industrial Internet of Things into your existing system, including:
- The multiple input, single output problem in decision making
- The "hidden factory" that inevitably results from a counterproductive and unpredictable mix of old and new technologies
- Designing feedback mechanisms in your system to gain IQ, make profits, and satisfy customers
- Solving problems and implementing change by engaging the company culture
Drawing on real examples, he will demonstrate how you can recognize and respond quickly to these shortfalls, leveraging IIoT to transform your current operations into a sustainable learning organization.
Does your company have the right systems culture to survive, thrive, and lead in the fourth era? Attend this webinar to find out.
We also invite you to learn more about Dr. Carrier’s new program, Implementing Industry 4.0: Leading Change in Manufacturing and Operations, offered April 4–5 and July 11–12, at MIT Sloan Executive Education.
