About the webinar:

Presenter: Mike Rolfes, Analyst

Smart manufacturing is a broad and often ambiguous concept. A variety of business objectives – such as creating new revenue streams, or improving operational efficiency – propel companies into going smart. However, the path to going smart isn’t always very smart, and finding the right mix of technologies to get there isn’t easy. Technologies like 3D printing, warehouse robotics, and IoT have shown considerable promise for things like customization, automation, and predictive maintenance. Yet, these technologies are not perfect for every application. This webinar will discuss:

  • Developing the right technology portfolio to meet business objectives in the manufacturing space
  • Finding the right deployment strategies to aid in technology acceptance and adoption
  • Combining data and technical expertise to optimize the effectiveness of these solutions
A trillion sensors are coming, and as critical gateways to the internet of things (IoT), sensors are sure to have a massive social and economic impact globally within the next decade. Proliferation of sensors as a result, is sure to dramatically expand the possibilities of doing business for some companies, while curbing others. This has fueled the appetite for sensor start-ups to innovate across all applications, while cash-rich companies have spent over $100 billion in M&A since 2014 in sensor companies. With an innovation to address every conceivable need, navigating this complex market requires businesses to have a clear understanding of the role they want to play, capabilities they will need and the types of innovation they should pursue. - See more at: http://www.luxresearchinc.com/news-and-events/events/disruption-growth-navigating-sensor-revolution#sthash.gv8zhGn0.dpuf

The merger and breakup of Dow and DuPont signal a new era of competition in the chemicals and materials industry—one that is already forcing companies to take risks in technologies far from their traditional strengths in order to keep up healthy growth. Rapid changes in markets as diverse as automotive and agriculture, as well as fundamentally new types of materials solutions, are forcing companies to take major high risk bets. As part of its new Chemicals and Materials Corporate Strategic Intelligence service, in this webinar, Lux Research examines which competitors are best positioned to stay nimble in this uncertain environment, what disruptive technologies to watch out for, and what lessons the industry needs to learn from recent events. - See more at: http://www.luxresearchinc.com/news-and-events/events/upheaval-chemicals-and-materials-industry#sthash.hOdvPnoG.dpuf

Food security and food sustainability are becoming exceedingly important in the food and agricultural sectors. With it, life cycle assessments (LCA) are turning critical for identifying risks and opportunities. However, today’s LCA approaches suffer from a number of shortcomings that prevent the implementation of food security and sustainability in strategic and tactical product decisions. Data collection, analytics and interpretation remain a challenge across the board, coupled with high cost.
 
This webinar will review approaches to address these issues as well as detail specific case studies of product selection and improvements.

Driven by advancements in materials, hardware, software, and business model innovations in recent years, it is no longer a matter of “will?”, but rather “how?” and “when?". Leading executives should focus less on whether 3D printing is going to be disruptive (it will!), but rather what are you going to do when it disrupts your industry. Creating an optimal 3D printing strategy requires an understanding of the materials and processes available, current industry interest, and proven applications.
