Smart Manufacturing Model: "The Structure and Value of the New Smart Manufacturing Model"
Khris Kammer, AVEVA, MESA International Board of Directors Chairman
This session will explore the new MESA Smart Manufacturing Model. It starts with a brief history of previous MESA models, then explains the high-level structures in the model – Lifecycles, Cross-Lifecycle Threads, and Enabling Technologies. We will also discuss the artifacts that are being released based on the model, including written works, use-cases, and presentations.
Sustainability: "The Journey to the Green Factory"
Alejandro Araque, Application Consultant Rockwell Automation Bogota, Colombia
In this case study we explore the journey from traditional manufacturing to the Green Factory. We will look specifically at the IT and OT technology required to support the Green Factory from network design to instrumentation and from data collection to dashboards and KPI’s. It’s all about giving the people a real-time window into the operations of the factory so they can proactively manage all aspects of the operations with the goal of achieving a Green Factory. Come hear this amazing journey to the Green Factory.
Smart Manufacturing Model: "Is It Really Needed?"
Jimmy Asher, Deloitte
Panel Discussion: "Taking Advantage of Manufacturing Data"
Sarah Morgan, Kellogg , Tony Huffman, Molex, Ariel Shasko, Kennametal
In a world where data is fast becoming the lifeblood of manufacturing, knowing how to harness it effectively is paramount. Our expert panelists, including smart manufacturing and technology thought leaders, will share their personal experience and advice on the fundamental role of data in shaping the future of manufacturing. From outlining key data strategies to sharing success stories and lessons learned, we will provide insights into how businesses can turn data into a strategic asset, fostering resilience, competitiveness, and innovation in the Industry 4.0 era.
Smart Manufacturing Community: "Smart Manufacturing, Robotics, and Internal Logistics"
