Wednesday at 10:30am – The Augmented Worker: Rethinking How We Train and Support the Future Manufacturing Workforce

The manufacturing workforce is changing rapidly – shorter tenure rates, workplace unpredictability, and remote work are forcing manufacturing leaders to re-think traditional training, guidance, and on-the-job support. These changes, combined with a tight labor market and widening skills gap, are creating increased challenges for industrial companies of all sizes. More than 2.6 million baby boomers are going to retire over the next several years and are taking with them decades of experience and skills. Additionally, shifting skill sets and a decreasing number of workers entering the sector could leave hundreds of thousands of jobs unfilled due to a lack of trained workers. Facing this workforce challenge, manufacturers are turning to emerging digital technologies to equip and train their workforces with the tools and knowledge needed to be productive. Technologies such as mobile and wearable devices, augmented and mixed reality (AR/MR), as well as artificial intelligence (AI) are helping to connect a new generation of workers, and are allowing organizations to proactively deliver the right level of training, support, and on-the-job guidance. In this session, learn how AI and connected worker technology are helping connect and augment the future manufacturing workforce and improve productivity and operational agility.
