The Role of Technology in the Transition from ICE to EV Manufacturing Virtual Roundtable

18 July 2023 | Online

11am-12pm ET / 8am-9am PST/ 4pm-5pm BST

Global sustainability initiatives and shifts in consumer demand are driving the need for automotive manufacturers to transition from existing ICE models to EVs. While EV manufacturing is less geometrically complex than ICE manufacturing, the scale, immensity, and speed of this transition is driving complexity across automotive manufacturing, impacting existing digital infrastructure, interoperability with smart factory systems, manufacturing operations, and workforce capabilities.

To successfully transition, automotive manufacturers must remain agile, and determine how to better utilize smart manufacturing technology and refine their industry 4.0 strategy to assist them with this evolution.
