Automation Alley is a World Economic Forum Advanced Manufacturing Hub (AMHUB) for North America and a nonprofit Industry 4.0 knowledge center with a global outlook and a regional focus. We facilitate public-private partnerships by connecting industry, education and government to fuel Michigan's economy.
While the focus historically has been on the “what” of Industry 4.0, Automation Alley member Baker Tilly is proactively helping manufacturers determine the “where” of their Industry 4.0 journey. Manufacturers across the supply chain will need to make smart location decisions to remain relevant in the next generation of manufacturing. In case you missed it, check out Baker Tilly’s presentation from our 2022 Integr8 conference where they discussed how manufacturers can use analytics to guide their large capital-spend projects to ensure facilities are established in the most optimal location for labor availability, utility costs, tax incentives and more.
