Digital Inventories: how a next-gen warehouse is reshaping manufacturing

7 December 2023, America 10:00 am - 11:30 am EST

How will digital inventories transform the factory floor and associated supply chains?

Running manufacturing operations has never been more challenging. Increasing workforce and supply chain challenges are only exacerbating the situation.

Leading companies are solving these challenges by modernizing their supply chains. Additive manufacturing (AM) is one opportunity to minimize risk and enable more resilient and flexible supply chains by bringing industrial 3D printing right to the factory floor. Could it be time to digitize your supply chain with digital inventories only created when and where they're needed?

Join thought leaders from Markforged, along with a group of your industry peers, in this digital roundtable as we discuss strategies manufacturers are using to modernize. We’ll share challenges and exchange best practices to improve profitability by eliminating waste from overproduction and reducing storage and transportation costs.
