|Boeing's Everett Factory
Attendees of the Smart Manufacturing Summit will receive exclusive access to tour the factory floor of Boeing’s Everett factory. This behind the scenes access will highlight advanced manufacturing techniques, composite material assembly, and lean manufacturing.
Discover innovative processes, procurement strategies and quality control techniques that will elevate your own company’s manufacturing capabilities to achieve higher growth and greater market share.
You will learn how wide-body jets with millions of parts and miles of wiring are sourced from subcontractors and brought together for final assembly in one location. Beyond efficient work practices, Boeing employs more than 30,000 people at their Everett factory, which has its own fire department, security team, day care center and fitness center.
Attendees of the Smart Manufacturing Summit will enjoy a visit to Microsoft’s Redmond Headquarters, where you will hear about their newest technologies for manufacturing. Plan ahead with the tools that will enable your manufacturing company to build the factory of the future and utilize technology to optimize operational efficiency.
Among other technologies, you will learn about:
The Internet of Things (IoT)
IoT is real and it’s here today, but to many manufacturers IoT may seem noisy, confusing and hard to understand how it applies to their business. Learn how to leverage the technology and infrastructure you already have in place, and how Microsoft can help you plan your IoT projects to take advantage of untapped data to transform your manufacturing business.
Cyber Defense Operations Center (CDOC)
As the world continues to change and business requirements evolve, some things are constant: a customer’s demand for security and privacy. Each of your customers deserve a trustworthy cloud experience and Summit attendees will discover the newest Microsoft technology to help protect their valuable data.
With the ability to interact with three-dimensional holograms in your real world, you’ll have a new medium to design and a more effective way to visualize your work and share your ideas with others. Smart Manufacturing Summit attendees will be among the first to demo the new Microsoft HoloLens, which understands your movements, vision, and voice, enabling you to interact with content and information in the most natural way possible, improving product quality and reducing time to market.
Starbucks Reserve Roastery
Two years ago, Starbucks upped its game by introducing the Roastery—a downtown Seattle-based model for future high-end Starbucks outlets, soon to be rolled out selectively across the country—and the world.
Smart Manufacturing Summit attendees will tour the Roastery, gain insight into the impact such manufacturing trends as robotics, automation, and IoT have had on Starbucks's processes, and taste the range of rare coffees offered at this location.
|Seattle Space Needle
Summit attendees will enjoy an opening reception at the Seattle Space Needle.
Built for the 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle provides sweeping views of downtown Seattle, Mount Rainier, Elliot Bay and the surrounding islands.
Attendees will enjoy an opening reception with breathtaking views while they network with other guests and share strategies they have applied to their individual businesses.
|Museum of Flight
Established in 1965, the Museum of Flight is the largest private air and space museum in the world.
Aircraft on permanent displace include the first flight-worthy Boeing 747, the Concorde and an SR-71 Blackbird,
