OPS Solutions CEO to Attend, Speak at Integr8™ Conference

Detroit is one of the fastest growing technology and entrepreneurship hubs in the United States. Over the past few years, the city has been transformed by the increasing number of tech startups and entrepreneurial talent that see its potential.

Manufacturing technology, specifically, has put Detroit at the forefront of Industry 4.0–or the fourth industrial revolution of connected, smart factories.

This movement includes innovative advances, such as augmented reality, cloud computing, 3D printing, autonomous robotics, big data, the internet of things, artificial intelligence and more.

With Michigan positioned to lead the nation in the implementation of Industry 4.0 on factory floors, symposiums like Intergr8: Automation Alley’s Global Industry 4.0 Conference are vitally important to improving knowledge and understanding for both business owners and the manufacturing workforce as a whole.

Held at the Marriott Renaissance Center in Detroit, Integr8™ is a unique, cross-discipline global conference bringing together the world’s foremost Industry 4.0 thought leaders to discuss smart technologies shaping the future of manufacturing.

At OPS Solutions, we’re proud to contribute to the growth of the Industry 4.0 sector within Michigan’s economy, and beyond. Light Guide Systems, our patented AR technology, has delivered a series of breakthrough applications that have fundamentally transformed the standard operating procedures of world-class manufacturing facilities and innovation centers around the world.

Think of enterprise augmented reality training tools like a powerful GPS app. A traditional map can get you where you need to go, but the visual and verbal guidance, adaptive real-time navigation and simple utility and convenience of a GPS gets you there faster, safer, and with fewer wrong turns!

As the Founder and CEO of OPS Solutions, and creator of Light Guide Systems, I’m excited to take part in the Integr8™ conference as a panel expert and join other industry leaders in educating attendees about the power and possibilities of Industry 4.0 technologies.

During my session about Modeling, Simulation and Visualization (MSV), I will be talking about the real-world applications of augmented reality in manufacturing, pointing out the differences between AR and VR, and explaining how–contrary to conventional wisdom–AR not only retains manufacturing jobs, but creates new ones.

If you’re attending Integr8™, I hope to see you at my session. You can also learn more about my company at our expo table, where we’ll be showcasing our Light Guide Systems PRO in action.
