The COVID-19 pandemic has been a major disruptive force for robotics companies of all sizes and sectors. With shelter-in-place regulations established first in China, then Europe, and now sweeping across North America, robotics manufacturers and OEMs alike are forced to navigate mandatory closures, material shortages, importation road blocks, and remote work scenarios. These roadblocks can quickly paralyze business-as-usual supply chain operations and leave companies with no clear path forward. 

In this webinar hosted by the Pittsburgh Robotics Network (PRN) and sponsored by Fictiv, you’ll hear from supply chain and robotics manufacturing experts on specific strategies to help you “future-proof” your supply chain to increase resilience against future disruptions. These strategies will help you build a short term plan of action as well as a long term roadmap to adapt systems and processes for future risk mitigation.

This interactive webinar & panel discussion will cover how to:

  1. Reduce reliance on a sole source or geography, especially for critical or hard to source components.
  2. Build and maintain strong partnerships & visibility throughout your supply chain.
  3. Stay prepared for the unexpected through proactive scenario planning.

Following this 25 min presentation, Andy Sherman will facilitate a 30 minute panel discussion with PRN leaders and experts, followed by an interactive Q&A which may last up to 30 minutes.
