Video Chat: Covid-19, Digital Transformation And The Future of Manufacturing, Episode 5

June 3, 2021
Rockwell Automation's Vice President of Digital Transformation Keith Higgins joins the IW Members Only Video Chat series to discuss the future of manufacturing.

Adapting to change and finding ways to remain diligently prepared despite disruption have perhaps been the only constants over the past year. And for many manufacturers the decision to pursue or accelerate digital transformation efforts proved to be strong investments.

In addition, while US manufacturing activity surged to a 37-year high in March, the industry has more than half a million job openings, and could ultimately cost the US economy up to $1 trillion by 2030. Makes for an interesting environment.

Keith Higgins, vice president of digital transformation for Rockwell Automation joined IW Intelligence to discuss how manufacturing has changed a year after the pandemic noticeably rocked the boat.
