Manufacturers face a major issue: the labor shortage. Specifically, the shortage of specialized machinists in the CNC machining industry. While industry levels are back to pre pandemic level, manufacturers have to find solutions to increase production capacity with limited resources. The known solution is automation, but it takes time to implement, it requires important investments, and it is not possible in all production contexts. There is another solution: improve the ratio operator/machine. In his presentation, the speaker presents how to use machine data and AI to help a machinist manage more machines at the same time, while increasing machine uptime.

Through real implementation cases and concrete examples, the presentation aims to guide manufacturers to enhance production capacity with limited resources. The speaker will also present best practices to implement new technologies on the shopfloor in order to reduce the resistance of change by the employees.
