OEMs are shifting more and more to platform strategies – for engineering, for manufacturing, and increasingly for the software and technology used across plants and the supply chain. With networked factories, shared tooling and data, automotive manufacturers gain not only economies of scale but also visibility on production quality, changes and potential errors – as well as the ability to leverage datasets.

Through 1:1 interviews and an extensive panel discussion, learn about the potential of advanced software to enhance new automation opportunities, as well as ensuring the most optimal layouts, workflow and supply chain planning. And with a look to the near future, learn how 5G connectivity will unlock even more data and AI capability.
