AI for the manufacturing industry

A logical continuation of the automation and the robotization of the sector, artificial intelligence is spreading more and more in the manufacturing industry. To name but a few things, it can allow to optimise the production chain (adaptation of the flow according to data, detection of defective products…), to improve the maintenance process (detection of wear, failures…), to improve the relations with the suppliers (measure of risks). But also to contribute to a better customer knowledge (use of products…).

This two-day program is for industrial business managers who want to understand how to make of AI a lever for their business.

The first day, you will discover the AI through presentation and practical exercises. The second day focuses on the industry business. This day will prepare the implementation of AI in your company with a practical case followed throughout the day.
