Don’t miss Augmentir discuss building a modern connected manufacturing workforce with AI
Among this year’s presenters will be Augmentir’s VP of Strategic Operations, Chris Kuntz, as he discusses building a modern connected manufacturing workforce with AI. In his session, Chris will discuss how AI is being used to shape today’s new workforce and address some of manufacturing’s biggest challenges:
- Workforce variability is making it increasingly difficult to meet safety, quality, and productivity goals
- Existing onboarding and training processes don’t work with today’s shorter tenures
- Simply “digitizing work” and offering remote support will not solve these workforce problems
- The entire “Hire to Retire” process needs to be reimagined
The session will discuss how today’s dynamic and changing manufacturing workforce needs personalized guidance and support, as well as continuous learning opportunities in order to effectively sustain and deliver effective on-the-job performance.
- Learn about new software tools that can support a more efficient “hire to retire” process enabling companies to operate in a more flexible and resilient manner
- Hear how data-driven Performance Support intelligently closes skills gaps at the moment of need and enables autonomous work
- Learn how Real-time Workforce Intelligence can provide insights into training, guidance, and support needs
