What is the meaning of "visualization" in the manufacturing industry - What and for what purpose will the town factories show to whom and for what purpose?

A panel discussion, "What is the Meaning of 'Visualization' in the Manufacturing Industry - What and for Whom and for What Purposes Should Machi-Factories Show to the Public?

In the Kansai region, the manufacturing industry is becoming more active in opening up to the community and society (open factories), and horizontal collaboration is emerging. Such collaboration is expected to break away from the conventional subcontracting structure and even create economic value through collaboration and sharing. In order to create economic value, what kind of data should manufacturers acquire internally and how should they present it to whom so that it can be utilized? In this session, we will discuss a society in which the manufacturing industry works together under the theme of two types of "visualization": open and smart. The speakers will include a telecommunications carrier promoting smart factories, a private company working on urban development that includes the manufacturing industry as a stakeholder, and the mayor of Osaka City's Minato Ward, who is promoting industrial development in the Bay Area, a manufacturing-intensive area in Osaka City, to discuss the growth potential of manufacturing collaboration.

We will have a program of discussions among researchers, start-ups, and large companies from a variety of perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
