Technical Webinar – Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 and Modeling, Simulation and Visualization

April 20, 2021
12 noon – 1 p.m.

Co-sponsored by the IEOM Society

Continue your professional learning with ESD’s online educational sessions. Covering a broad range of topics, these one-hour webinars offer the flexibility of participating from anywhere via the Zoom platform. Sessions are complimentary to our members and the engineering community.

ESD will provide certificates of attendance for continuing education credit to participants.

According to the World Economic Forum, 65% of children entering primary school today will ultimately end up working in completely new job types that currently do not exist. Industry 4.0 transformation is shaping our talent pipeline in the manufacturing industry. Disruptive technologies are forcing the development of new business models. Uber Technologies has nearly eliminated long-standing taxi industries. Nowadays the biggest question is who will win the game of smart industrialized revolutions? This talk will showcase the challenges and opportunities of disruptive technologies in industrial sectors. Focus will be modeling, simulation and visualization. Industrial case studies on modeling and simulation will be provided.
