UiPath, a company that develops robotic process automation (RPA) solutions, has signed on as a sponsor for The Smart Factory @ Wichita, a new immersive experience center for Industry 4.0 powered by Deloitte. UiPath will demonstrate the role of RPA in smart factories as a sponsor of The Smart Factory @ Wichita, engaging a wide range of manufacturers in sophisticated manufacturing technologies.

Sebastian Seutter, global manufacturing lead at UiPath, said, “There are endless possibilities to evolve the way in which solutions and products are developed within smart factories to make an impact on the world. When automation, artificial intelligence, and the IoT are seamlessly connected, smart factories can dramatically reduce throughput time and increase factory output, while enabling reduced lot sizes, ensuring sustainable operations, and lower operating costs. UiPath is a partner-first company, and to date, we’ve done more than 400 joint engagements with Deloitte with large organizations. We are embarking as a team on this initiative to illustrate to companies around the world how humans working alongside robotic software assistants will rapidly introduce new capacity for value and innovation.”

UiPath, a Builder sponsor, will partner with Deloitte to accelerate the implementation of smart factories and make it easier for manufacturers to adopt Industry 4.0 technologies to accelerate the creation of new business models and increase productivity, quality, and sustainability.

By sponsoring The Smart Factory @ Wichita, UiPath will leverage the ecosystem’s powerful capabilities to help customers across multiple industries improve their supply chains and access next-generation technology such as its UiPath platform to automate processes such as order intake management, alignment with ERP systems, factory asset intelligence and performance management, plans for plant consumption, synchronizing factory schedules, and managing energy.

It consists of a fully operating production line as well as a set of experiential labs for developing and experimenting with smart factory innovations.

With this facility, companies manufacture products, create new business value, achieve data-driven insights, and automate or eliminate business processes using technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), and robotics.
