Advanced Manufacturing and Supply Chains

Listen to the article

Since its launch in 2018, the Global Lighthouse Network and its more than 100 members have shown how Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies can drive performance and innovate supply chains—improving everything from productivity and sustainability to workforce engagement.

The challenge ahead will be scaling both the deployment and adoption of these technologies. Join us this month for 'Lighthouses Live' to hear from Lighthouse Leaders and experts from the World Economic Forum and McKinsey on how frontrunners are already leveraging 4IR tech to transform their operations. Come to celebrate the newest members of the Global Lighthouse Network and get a glimpse of the innovators shaping a more resilient, sustainable and human-centric future of manufacturing.
