The supply chain challenges of the past two years have pointed out of the system shortfalls, as well as the way technology is used to smooth out the bumps and fill the gaps. Among the questions this webinar will address are:

  • What’s the current state of the supply chain? How have manufacturers and suppliers addressed the systemic failures of the past two years.
  • How do technologies such as motion control, sensors and vision systems work together to deliver improved efficiency and pick accuracy on plant floors.
  • How do manufacturers better secure their supply chain data to ensure data flows smoothly and swiftly to improve productivity while minimizing the threat of cyberattacks.
  • What strategies should packaging and manufacturing teams employ to ensure greater efficiency—and what strategies most often get overlooked?
