Siemens Industry Sector has launched its "Manufacturing in America: Making Things Right" tour, a series of thought leadership events designed to explore the trends shaping America's next industrial evolution, and the challenges that still exist.
More than 2,000 online users joined last week's Siemens-sponsored "America's New Manufacturing" forum, presented by Washington Post Live. The forum brought together government officials and leading industry experts to discuss topics such as the new era in manufacturing, expanding manufacturing hubs, trends in manufacturing, workforce training, and innovations and advanced technology.
"Across the globe, and particularly in the U.S., the manufacturing sector is undergoing an evolution where innovation and manufacturing are merging, driving both product and process innovation. This is making industry more competitive and taking productivity and efficiency to levels never experienced before," says Helmuth Ludwig, CEO of Siemens Industry Sector, North America.
"This industrial evolution is highly based on software and companies that have embraced this concept are experiencing a shorter time-to-market through efficient innovation cycles and enhanced flexibility using more data to individualize mass production. Advanced manufacturing is an important part of Siemens growth, and will provide the U.S. an edge in the future of our manufacturing sector."
On May 17th, Siemens will participate in the MAPI (Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation), Executive Summit, featuring panel discussions on "The Future of Manufacturing Innovation" and "The Future of U.S. Manufacturing: A New Executive Perspective," in Chicago. Other Siemens thought leadership events will be held in Los Angeles, June 11th, New Orleans, June 24th-27th and New York, July 16th.
