The Manufacturing Advantage Conference provides a forum for manufacturers from across the region to learn best practices and participate in practical learning through interactive, hands-on breakout sessions, industry-expert keynote speakers and ample networking opportunities. We strive to carry on a solid tradition of providing impactful experiences to help manufacturers succeed in the areas of strategic direction, top-line growth, process improvement and people and culture.
The UW-Stout Manufacturing Outreach Center (MOC) in collaboration with WMEP has worked to infuse a technology showcase into the annual Manufacturing Advantage Conference. The centers, both affiliated with the national NIST / MEP system, are committed to uncovering pathways to greater profitability and growth for small to mid-sized manufacturers in Wisconsin. In an effort to support proactive initiatives of our manufacturers in a fast-paced and ever-changing world, we are seeking to expand upon the past participation of NASA Glenn Research centers, cutting-edge technology companies with highly regarded engineering academics. The 2017 Manufacturing Advantage Conference & Technology Showcase is being designed to showcase even more emerging technologies from a variety of companies and agencies. We are seeking the input of manufacturers across the state to determine their needs as relative to technology and the greatest areas of interest for innovation and research in an effort to provide exposure and interaction with these leading technology solutions in the most meaningful way.
