The automotive industry and its suppliers face major challenges, as the industry has recently undergone change. Digitization is becoming more and more popular.

The fourth digital revolution will enhance automation, precision, and the efficient, digitized manufacturing of goods and services with cutting-edge technologies. This new era is the transformation of a digitized world within which manufacturers should actively work to learn, adapt, and evolve.

Now is the time for manufacturers to embrace the fourth digital revolution for better, smarter, faster manufacturing.

On the webinar we will delve into the industry’s most significant challenges and the actions that automotive companies — especially suppliers — should take to not only survive but thrive in the years ahead. You will learn:
  • How to reduce cost with better data management
  • How to predict quality issues and improve the detection of failure
  • How machine learning and AI can enable better asset management and service alerts at the right time

Join our webinar to hear the story from SEG Automotive, a world-leading automotive supplier that has already successfully implemented its digitalization strategy.
