Event Details


Discussions about the changing face of manufacturing are growing in volume. New forces are leading to a world that’s smart and connected -- what some refer to as the Internet of Things (IoT).


This webinar is for Economic Development Professionals and Manufacturers

In manufacturing, (Industrial Internet of Things/IIoT) sensors in industrial machines and the products they make are combining with software via the Internet to produce a coming tectonic shift that changes manufacturing and economic development. This is not an Apple watch monitoring your heart rate. This is a world in which the battery in your car reports back to the manufacturer in real-time about its operating health and environment via the Internet to reduce service requirements, improve performance, and provide valuable input into the next generation battery. A world where by tightening the loop between engineering design, production processes on the plant floor, and the service organization, manufacturers can reduce errors, increase flexibility in how they manage late-stage engineering changes, reduce work-in-process, and, ultimately, accelerate new product introductions. And, being able to stay connected to a product after the point of sale gives manufacturers a “digital umbilical cord,” allowing interaction with products whenever and wherever.

The IIoT has the potential for a multitrillion-dollar worldwide economic impact by giving manufacturers an opportunity to engage customers beyond the purchase, using service-based contracts to create a partnership built around product performance. Manufacturing facilities get smaller. They move closer to the end user eliminating distribution constraints. Change is no longer about cost reduction. Change is about optimizing the product to best serve the user.


Our guide – direct from Silicon Valley – is Julian Keith Loren, Director of External Engagement and Solutions at GE Software. For over 20 years, Julian has been building teams to solve big, complex puzzles. At GE, he gets to work on a wide range of puzzles—making factories brilliant, streamlining global logistics, optimizing worldwide airline operations, making cities run like clockwork, helping hospitals hum, and more. Julian is the Co-Founder of the Innovation Management Institute where he designs and facilitates Gameferences—face-to-face games that drive break-through problem solving. Julian also runs collaborative design games at Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley and speaks and writes about teamwork and innovation.
