Manufacturing Analytics Leaders Talk Digital Innovation and Industry 4.0 Success in New Webinar Series

PORTLAND, Ore., April 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A new webinar series, "The Foundation of Industry 4.0", launches on May 8th, 2019 and highlights subject matter experts including manufacturers outlining what it takes to deliver sustainable and scalable digital transformation, and include common challenges, proven best practices, and real-world outcomes.

The first of these bi-monthly webinars – Building the Foundation of Industry 4.0 – is scheduled for May 8, 2019 and features the globally-recognized leader in the application of manufacturing analytics, Dr. Lloyd Colegrove from The Dow Chemical Company. Dr. Colegrove will outline how Dow has successfully built out the foundation of their Industry 4.0 program with manufacturing analytics.

"Industry 4.0 puts the manufacturing industry at a cross roads," Dr. Colegrove affirms. "Whether driven by customer requirements, regulatory demands, or internal needs to lower costs, companies must use manufacturing analytics to operationalize the process data they have as well as the data that will be added through new technologies like remote sensors and drones. Analytics are the foundation of Industry 4.0 and enable better decisions across the enterprise."

As the Director of Data Services and Fundamental Problem Solving, Dr. Colegrove began driving the digital transformation of Dow in the early 2000s helping shape their Industry 4.0 strategy that has generated over a $.5 billion dollars in savings to date.
