Founded in 1990, $7 billion AGCO Corp. makes enormous agricultural machines that you have to see to believe. Their "connected farm" solutions are even bigger.
Join the Manufacturing Leadership Council at the AGCO factory and Intivity Center in Jackson, MN, for an exclusive opportunity for a behind-the-scenes look at how some of the most advanced agricultural equipment is made by a company with a long-standing commitment to farmer-focused innovation.
The MN facility is one of the most modern vehicle manufacturing assembly factories in the US and a site where some of the key technologies underpinning Manufacturing 4.0, the next wave of industrial progress, are being used. The tour will include an exploration of how AGCO is employing Google Glass, Virtual Reality, Robotics, RFID, and Automated Guided Vehicle technologies.
Attend this plant tour, which will be followed by an executive roundtable discussion on Transformative Technologies, and walk away with actionable insights, including:
Director, Business Process Improvement,

AGCO's Jackson, Minnesota manufacturing team has incorporated Google Glass to audit finished product before it is shipped to dealers for consumer purchase. Wearable technology allows the Quality team to thoroughly inspect tractors while improving standards in safety, checklist documentation, issue trending and throughput. Although Glass still feels as futuristic of a technology as flying cars, AGCO has embraced the elaborate electronic devices, making use of voice activated commands and eye winks as daily tools. In addition to the efficiency that voice and eye motion bring to the process, the simple fact that the quality technicians are no longer carrying devices, allowing for hands free inspection and focus on safety has increased throughput, safety records and checkpoint reliability.
Join this exclusive plant tour for an in-person look at this innovative technology and more.
The P&G tour and roundtable was priceless- a chance to see world-class manufacturing principles and practices up close and personal. I have a dozen ideas to take back to my company to share
The organization of the day was well orchestrated to maximize the huge amount of content with the limited time constraint. Bravo!
It was an extraordinary experience, very useful to my continuous improvement
