Since the Industrial Revolution, manufacturing has played a fundamental role in the development and enablement of modern society: from buildings and transportation to devices, medicines, clothing, and more. Literally, everything we use and touch is the result of manufacturing processes that are designed to produce reliable, safe products, at optimal costs. Machines have always played a role in manufacturing, but recent/new technologies such as robotics and 3D printing are poised to truly transform manufacturing. These technologies have the potential to greatly reduce cost and risk to workers, increase consistency and reliability (and thus safety) of products, and enable production to be not just quicker, but closer to customers and consumers. However, such transformative changes also have implications for workforce development, and thus society overall. Please join us as experts in manufacturing discuss the present and future of manufacturing, the challenges and the opportunities for Austin, and what it means for all of us.
