UiPath, a leading robotic process automation (RPA) software company, has announced it has become a Builder sponsor of The Smart Factory @ Wichita, a new Industry 4.0 immersive experience center by Deloitte.
As a sponsor of The Smart Factory @ Wichita, UiPath will showcase the role of RPA in the future of smart factories while engaging a broad spectrum of companies in sophisticated manufacturing innovations and the technologies behind them.
As a Builder sponsor, UiPath will work with Deloitte to advance the execution of smart factories and enable manufacturers to quickly adopt state-of-the-art, Industry 4.0 technologies to drive new business models and boost quality, productivity, and sustainability.
As part of the sponsorship, UiPath will leverage the powerful ecosystem of The Smart Factory @ Wichita to help customers across numerous industries innovate their supply chain and access next-generation technologies such as the UiPath platform to automate processes like order intake management, ERP alignment, factory asset intelligence and performance management, plant consumption, factory synchronization and scheduling, and energy management.
“There are endless possibilities to evolve the way in which solutions and products are developed within smart factories to make an impact on the world. When automation, artificial intelligence, and the IoT are seamlessly connected, smart factories can dramatically reduce throughput time and increase factory output, while enabling reduced lot sizes, ensuring sustainable operations, and lower operating costs,” said Sebastian Seutter, global manufacturing lead at UiPath. “UiPath is a partner-first company, and to date we’ve done more than 400 joint engagements with Deloitte with large organizations. We are embarking as a team on this initiative to illustrate to companies around the world how humans working alongside robotic software assistants will rapidly introduce new capacity for value and innovation.”
The Smart Factory includes a fully operational production line and experiential labs for developing and exploring smart factory innovative capabilities.
It is a highly digitized, connected production facility that uses technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), and robotics to help companies manufacture products, create new business value, unlock data-driven insights, and automate or eliminate business processes.
The Smart Factory @ Wichita will bring digital transformations to life by demonstrating how to merge existing technologies with new innovations, sparking a dialogue about how companies can accelerate their journeys toward scalable and sustainable capabilities, according to the vendor.
