The Future of Manufacturing

InterNano - Upcoming Events - April 5, 2016 - 3:32pm
ConferenceTuesday, April 19, 2016 (All day)Washington, DC http://www.bloomberglive.com/events/the-future-of-manufacturing/ While economists debate over whether the U.S. manufacturing industry has hit a recession or a temporary stall due to low energy prices, one things appears clear – the future of U.S. manufacturing hinges on its ability to evolve and rethink operating models. In a recent study by Morgan Stanley, nearly 75% of U.S. plants are more than 20 years old. With such aging infrastructure, the question must be asked, how will the U.S. regain its place as the leader in manufacturing, and what will future manufacturing plants look like? Bloomberg will convene federal and state policy makers, and leaders of the manufacturing industry to discuss the imperative facing the U.S. manufacturing industry to innovate and evolve their businesses, and to develop an understanding of the benefits and costs of such efforts.
