Manufacturing faces a historic crisis: innovate or die. With profit margins already squeezed by economic and labor challenges, the COVID-19 pandemic has both exacerbated these barriers while creating a desperate need to continue operating safely and sustainably.

Visibility remains a significant challenge, particularly during the production process.
