Are you keeping up? Is your manufacturing plant as efficient as it could be? What will happen if you can’t find the necessary workers to accomplish your company’s goals?

For many small and medium-sized Rhode Island manufacturers, the answers could involve Automation.

The Center for Industrial Research and Service (CIRAS) is offering a 30-minute webinar designed to provide a broad overview of what automation can do for manufacturers in terms of improving efficiency, increasing throughput, and helping employees work more ergonomically. CIRAS experts will discuss what automation is, the state of the technology and where it’s heading, as well as the methodology and strategy that should factor into a company’s decision to automate a process.
