Andonix to Present on the Future of Lean Technology in Manufacturing at the 2nd E-Mas International Conference
Andonix CEO David Salazar will present on the next generation of Lean technology and its impact on Industry 4.0 initiatives
DETROIT, February 17, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Andonix, the developer of Smart Work Station™, will be a keynote speaker at the second E-Mas International Conference at Tecnológico de Monterrey Guadalajara in Jalisco on Thursday, February 20. Andonix CEO and Founder David Salazar will be presenting on the impact that Lean processes can have on the journey to Industry 4.0 for manufacturing organizations.
Founded in Detroit in 2017, Andonix is a cloud-based technology company built on extensive experience working with Fortune 50 companies in locations around the world. Smart Work Station™ was developed in response to the growing need of organizations to leverage new technologies to facilitate continued growth and compete in an ever-changing competitive landscape. The cost reductions, improvements to productivity and quality, and overall improvements such changes enable for frontline workers can have a transformational effect on all sized organizations.
"Lean 4.0 represents an opportunity to invest in digital transformation from the bottom up - seeing results in just a few days or weeks instead of years," says Andonix CEO David Salazar. "Smart Work Station™ provides that initial step by streamlining a significant amount of effort in connecting and training frontline workers. Forget the typical 18-month implementation timeline for enterprise software. We can be online and impacting the bottom line in less than a week."
Smart Work Station™ was developed to work with existing technology and onboard rapidly to help realize benefits more immediately. By addressing one of the most significant gaps in front line workforce technology (the continued use of paper), Smart Work Station™ helps address a number of continuing problems, including a 6-12 week average training period that can cost millions of dollars a year in wage inefficiency.
In his presentation, Salazar will touch on key elements of Lean 4.0 and its impact on a growing Industry 4.0 ecosystem, including best practices for digital transformation success and how it can generate ROI, how to manage major changes in an IT ecosystem, and the immediate productivity and cost-saving benefits of these technology tools.
