The Future of Intelligent Automation in Manufacturing Seminar

Thursday, June 20, 2019  |  Topgolf Charlotte


Reducing material or labor costs can be common practice in the Manufacturing space, but does it lead to long term profitability and strategic growth? Not usually. Quick-hit cost cutting measures may yield a short-term result, but they can have negative impact on employee satisfaction, product quality, innovation and strategic growth.


The Future of Intelligent Automation in Manufacturing Seminar will investigate a wide variety of interlocking themes and showcase how new tools and process can transform the future of manufacturing.


The seminar will highlight, K2’s Digital Process Automation (DPA) platform and UiPath’s Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform.  John Abplanalp, President & Principal Consultant, Tight Lines Advisors, will lead a keynote, “Insights For Manufacturing Success”, with the seminar wrapping up with real life examples from Discover Technologies and the positive impacts customers are experiencing with the implementation of TLA’s principals and intelligent automation technology. 


After the work is done, it's time for some fun, networking and the Topgolf challenge. Prizes awarded equally for good and bad golfing! We look forward to seeing you there!
