Technology is ever-changing from the beginning of the wheel to the future of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. Technology has also been a vital role in the maintenance industry and it is also disrupting the way engineers will use engineering technology in the future. This session will discuss the timeline of technology and the evolution over the last century and how it plans to affect engineers in the future through predictive, preventive, and automated maintenance.
1. Review an overview of engineering technology today
2. Specify the timeline of technology- evolution from the wheel to AI
3. Recognize technology in engineering today and the near future
4. Future of Engineering- Reactive, preventive, predictive, automated- how this disrupts the maintenance industry
