Lunch & Learn – The Future Is Now: Using Artificial Intelligence to Improve Operations

January 16, 2019, 11:30 am - 1:30 pm



Manufacturers in South Carolina are already using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to improve quality, decrease downtime and increase throughput. It may sound intimidating, but getting started with AI is easier and more cost-effective than you might think – and uses data you are already collecting.

Our featured speakers are Rick Oppedisano, CEO of Delta Bravo AI and Ben Warren, Director of North American Plant Operations for Atlas Copco. Their AI experience is the cover story of Smart Manufacturing Magazine’s November 2018 edition. Rick and Ben will share real world stories and lessons learned in deploying AI to improve OEE and reduce COPQ, downtime, material loss and labor costs. Learn how to achieve these benefits quickly and cost-effectively.

Use cases discussed will include Predictive and Condition-based Maintenance, Supply Chain Optimization, Reducing Material Loss and Downtime Planning.


Beyond Dashboards: Making Data Come To Life
Dashboards are great for telling us what already happened.  Learn how to bring your existing data to life with AI, finding the hidden correlations and patterns in your data that tell you what’s happening next.

Getting Started: Practical Applications and Where to Begin
What is the practicality of doing this in your environment? How can you use AI to improve quality and reduce downtime? Identify use cases for your business. Roadmap short and long-term opportunities for deploying AI.

Making It Real: Lessons Learned and Benefits
Hear the story of Atlas Copco’s initial foray into AI; from the Cost and Value to critical Lessons Learned. Learn Best Practices for deployment with a focus on smaller, incremental rollouts. Understand key cost drivers, potential points of failure and how to measure success.
