Webinar: Advanced manufacturing technologies for improving textile product environmental and social sustainability. Towards the smart Industry: digital transformation not only through technologies
About the session:
Digital transformation is not an end but a process and waiting for the final result is a bad move. Embracing digital technologies starts from designing the processes, understanding the important information and the data useful to generate them. Indeed, the Data Driven Company is the final goal and in a data driven environment different optimization possibilities (cost, energy consumption, reduction of losses or reuse of waste materials) can be better studied, understood and achieved.
