Presentation Title:  From Pilot to  Production


While manufacturers are beginning to see the advantages of digital transformation, many are now confronted with the challenges of transitioning technology from lab- or testbed-scale pilots into production environments. Small- and Medium-Sized Manufacturers (SMMs) face some of the largest gaps in digital adoption due to lack of understanding and limited resources for internal R&D and systems engineering needed for technology deployment. Through the exploration of real use cases, we will discover guiding principles for setting up pilots for successful transition and deployment by industry.


Emily Jerger is a Project Engineer at MxD, the Digital Manufacturing Institute. In this role, Emily has provided technical and programmatic management for MxD’s research and development project teams focusing in digital manufacturing thrust areas of supply chain, cybersecurity, design, and the future factory. Prior to joining MxD in September 2018, Emily was a Project Manager and Engineer at Sciaky, Inc., where she gained expertise on machine design-build and R&D for electron beam welding and additive manufacturing. She previously worked as a STEM educator at the Museum of Science and Industry. Emily has a B.S. in Engineering from Harvey Mudd College.
