Industry 4.0 is quickly transforming the manufacturing sector. Rapid advances in sensors, connectivity, analytics that enable smart machines, and advanced automation are already creating significant improvements in operational efficiency for companies.
FuzeHub, in partnership with Rochester Institute of Technology’s Center for Advanced and Sustainability Manufacturing (COE-ASM), is kicking off a federally funded project to help small and medium sized manufacturers identify Industry 4.0 technologies that match specific business needs and opportunities, and provide high return on investment by improving their operational efficiency and overall financial performance.
As part of the project launch, we invite you to join a voluntary research study that seeks to identify specific technical challenges that could be addressed by cost effective, digital manufacturing solutions. The ultimate goal of this project is to help manufacturers like you determine what technologies will have the greatest impact on your business.
To participate, please take this short online survey (estimated time to complete: 15-20 minutes): https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YN7MS98
Survey responses are due by April 15. If you are not the correct person to complete the survey, please share with the appropriate person(s) in your organization.
Survey Participation Benefits
- Eligibility to schedule a 60-minute Industry 4.0 consultation with experts at RIT’s COE-ASM, at no-cost.
- Access to survey summary results.
- Priority access to tools and case studies developed within the project.
Risks and Other Potential Benefits: We don’t anticipate any risks. Other benefits may include engagement with COE-ASM to provide assistance with your Industry 4.0 implementation – with some funding support available for NY State companies. Visit the COE-ASM website to learn more about the available resources and support.
