ASQ Austin Section General Meeting- (01/09/19, 6-8PM)

 

Operational Excellence 4.0™: Technology and Beyond

The technology transformation across industries is happening at an exponential pace.  The buzz today is all about the technologies involved with Industry 4.0.  However, there is minimal focus on expected results and excellence in the upcoming digital environment. Operational Excellence (OpEx) requires a system level thinking approach and is a challenging to optimize even today within organizations. Operational Excellence 4.0™ will bring with it unprecedented challenges as digitization and emerging technologies will need to be integrated within the existing operations and culture.

The presentation will discuss how the challenges of OpEx 4.0™ can be overcome using some proactive planning of looking beyond the technologies, to the excellence which can be achieved via the selection of technologies based on business needs and culture fit, and by deploying practical strategies for upskilling the workforce.
