In this Section
Ashley Furniture Mobile Skills Lab

Industry 4.0 is the automated collection and analysis of digitized industrial data and automated resulting action. It is the name referred to as the fourth industrial revolution. It is a confluence of trends and technologies that will leverage efficiencies and quality and change the nature of the workforce. It is a manufacturing reinvention happening across the globe.

Teaching Industry 4.0 concepts has become important for workforce development, reshoring efforts, current curriculum needs and engineering classes in high school. Smart manufacturing is transforming the way we work. 

The Ashley Furniture Mobile Skills Lab will be visiting UW-Stout this summer.... "The future for students in Industry 4.0 is bright, and it’s being made possible by Ashley Furniture’s commitment to education. Jim Dotta, Vice President of Casegoods/Engineering with Ashley Furniture Industries, who is also part of Ashley’s Education Foundation, says the company supports the development of tools and curriculum for industry."

In addition to the Ashley Furniture Mobile Skills Lab, UW-Stout is supporting this event.

Space is limited.
