The future of car manufacturing is innovative, digital, and green. New technologies combined with innovative business models offer manufacturers various opportunities to enhance their commercial value and catalyze growth. Technology and its utilization are the key drivers of manufacturing innovation and productivity enhancement thus the Innovative Car Manufacturing Summit 2021 will look into the most sophisticated technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Automation & Robotics, IoT, 3D printing, and others. These innovations will create highly intelligent, information-driven factories and distributed business models that can respond rapidly to change and deliver entirely new customized smart products and services. Manufacturing innovation will impact every aspect of the manufacturing businesses, from production and supply chain to workers. We aim to contemplate how the industry will solve the upcoming challenges – how innovations will affect humans and climate change, how the industry will exit COVID-19, adapt to new technologies, processes and up-skill their workforce, and enable high-value product development, improve their operations and unlock new opportunities.
