The future of manufacturing - part 2

Hear from KPMG’s Brian Heckler as he continues the discussion on where he sees the future of manufacturing going.



The future manufacturing has all kinds of opportunities.  We just explored a couple things here today in Detroit – How we could use virtual reality to look inside a product and how it comes together and it's working and how its manufactured.  We've talked about how multi-generational workforce are motivated by different things – the factory worker of tomorrow, we're going to have to find new and unique ways to motivate them and some of that might be through advanced automation through close proximity robotics and the next stage of the automated factory or even getting through dark factories. There's a whole horizon of new things coming onboard.  I'm sure data and analytics is going to be deep in that and so manufacturing tomorrow isn’t going to be like it used to be.
