Manufacturing: 3-Day Roadmap Workshop

Rand Group, LLC

3-day workshop using the Microsoft Catalyst methodology to build your manufacturing roadmap

Microsoft Catalyst Roadmap

Manufacturing is rapidly changing as technology and business conditions have evolved. Artificial intelligence and mixed reality, connected factory with IoT, predictive maintenance, and real-time production planning have become increasingly important. The Microsoft Catalyst workshop methodology helps organizations create a roadmap to implement high return, high value manufacturing initiatives.

Microsoft Catalyst is a proven and powerful methodology to value identification. As part of a Catalyst engagement, meet with our team of production specialists, integration engineers, and analytics consultants for a roadmap workshop. The scope of the engagement starts with a review of your business objectives, followed by mutual discovery and visualization of solutions, ending with a clear, actionable blueprint of how you can reach your business goals.

This workshop may be eligible for Microsoft funding up to 100% of the value of the offer.
