ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 23, 2022 —Panasonic will share specific steps manufacturers can take when choosing and executing digitalization projects as part of their Industry 4.0 journey at the Automate 2022 show in Detroit on June 6 at 8 a.m.

At Automate 2022, Christina Pierce, Sales Operations Manager for Panasonic PIDSA-IIoTS, will discuss how manufacturers can implement an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution to increase productivity, reduce costs and improve quality in her presentation, "Where Should You Begin Your Industry 4.0 and IIoT Journey?" In her session, which will take place from 8-8:45 a.m. on Monday, June 6, Christina will share how to get started, and several key process steps manufacturers can take to assure a successful implementation.
"Factory inefficiencies can no longer be brushed aside during a time of uncertain supply chain, labor shortages, and the demands of just-in-sequence manufacturing," said Pierce. "In my session, I'll share the short- and long-term benefits of implementing IIoT, from eliminating paper and printing costs to obtaining real-time data to generate insights into operations, and how attendees can present these concepts to management to spur change."
