Business as usual has changed for us all while manufacturing seems to be evolving faster than we can keep up with. Often times we ignore the latest technology or put it off until we have more time. Well, now is the time! Today, manufacturers are dealing with reduced staff and/or some needing to work from home. Whether you are onsite or working remotely, the ability to have visibility into machine activity is critical. Businesses need to be more lean moving forward, but your ability to manage doesn’t have to be!
North America is a leader in manufacturing, and it’s imperative that we continue to be during and post-COVID19. Operating leaner and getting the most out of your machines is more important than ever before. One way to do this is to optimize your shop’s current machinery by understanding the data it has been offering since the day it was installed. How can you do this? Watch, listen and learn from 3 professionals who offer simple to complex digital data solutions.
In keeping up with the mission of providing education for its member companies, Absolute Machine Tools together with the PMPA is hosting a 3-Part webinar on how digital data will improve your shop’s future success and viability.
This is just one of many ways membership in the PMPA is worthwhile and rewarding. First year membership is only $600 to experience the benefits of being “Better Together”!
