The 2016 IW Manufacturing & Technology Conference & Expo concluded May 5 with a half-day flurry of activity. That flurry included a morning keynote panel discussion from Toyota Motor North America. Three executives from the car manufacturer answered questions from the audience on everything from the Toyota Production System to robots and autonomous driving vehicles.
Mike Walton of Google delivered the final keynote address of the day, and his message was one of innovation.
And finally, save the date for the 2017 IW Manufacturing & Technology Conference & Expo. It will be held April 25-27, 2017, in Cleveland!
