The event can be followed on Twitter, hashtag #SFWS2017 and will be supported by the CrowdCompass Attendee Hub app (available at your preferred App Store). Look for the name: 3rd Smart Factory World Symposium, for premier networking and insight for all registered attendees.
“If we give our manufacturing personnel everything they need to analyze, assess, repair, and replace equipment, we must also give them the power to make these decisions and the confidence their decisions will be supported,” said Mohamed Abuali, PhD., Managing Director Americas, FORCAM, Inc., who will open the Smart Factory Symposium with a welcome alongside the Master of Ceremony. “We must also train them thoroughly in how to make these choices and how those choices affect not just operations, but also the entire enterprise.
Focusing on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and the impact of IIoT and digital transformation on manufacturing, the day’s events will feature panel discussions from some of the top industry experts from companies like FORD, Lockheed Martin, Maxion Wheels, The Dow Chemical Company, Richards Industries, Pratt & Whitney, Metalsa, and many more.
The panels will look at issues such as:
· Opportunities and Challenges of Manufacturing 4.0 and IIoT
· Is American manufacturing still competitive?
· Lean Mindset – Digital Continuum of automotive and aerospace
· How can manufacturing unlock the value of data quickly and effectively?
· Strategies for a successful digital transformation journey
There also will be tours of DMDII’s 20,000 sq. ft. innovative shop floor, which has brought together manufacturing leaders in industry, academia and the federal government to create unique learning lab featuring a true smart factory environment in Chicago’s Goose Island manufacturing hub.
Tom McDermott, Executive Director, DMDII Chief Program Officer at UI LABS, the location host of the event, will discuss the role of DMDII in North American manufacturing. One of the keynotes will be delivered by David Brousell, co-founder of the Manufacturing Leadership Council at global consultancy Frost & Sullivan. Brousell will talk about the opportunities and challenges in the Manufacturing 4.0 and the IIoT environment.
The Master of Ceremony and moderator for the many sessions focusing on best practice and strategies is Bob Vavra, editor and content manager for Plant Engineering, part of CFE Media.
The day will include dialogue-driven sessions and discussions, how-to insight for novices and experts for any level of transformation, live production and demonstrations, and problem finding and solution discussion.
Lunch will be served and will include a workshop discussion on the rules for Manufacturing 4.0 from the perspective of manufacturers navigating the manufacturing environment today that will lead in a spontaneous solution showcase by the conference organizer, FORCAM.
The afternoon will teach manufacturers on how to plan their future with scalable technology and data-driven insights.
FORCAM invited 5 Premium Partners, including Infor, Hannover Fairs USA, Predictronics, WAGO Corporation and JobsOhio to showcase their impactful involvement in the manufacturing industry with a special 60-second pitch to jumpstart the discussion and showcase their exhibition.
The event will conclude with a networking session and cocktail event that will introduce attendees to FORCAM’s partners at the Smart Factory World Symposium.
