The director of the Mars Rover project for NASA will keynote the annual ARC World Industry Forum, Feb. 11-14, 2013, in Orlando. The four-day conference and event features manufacturing and engineering-related speakers highlighting new processes and technologies, including Doug McCuiston, director of the Mars Exploration Program at NASA.

McCuiston will discuss the engineering and logistics needed to bring the rover, named Curiosity, to the surface of Mars. In his presentation, McCuiston will discuss this eight-year journey with a behind-the-scenes story of building Curiosity, getting it to the surface of Mars, its early discoveries, and what lies ahead for the Mars exploration program.

ARC analysts and a roster of some of the world's top manufacturers also will share knowledge at the annual event. Included in the event are four days of educational sessions, displays from some of the top manufacturers, and a series of networking events that encourage top manufacturing executives from around the world to exchange ideas.

The theme of the 2013 ARC Advisory Group event is, "Achieving Breakthrough Performance With New Processes and Technologies." ARC officials will discuss how to meet the goal of improved performance by identifying key improvement targets, implementing the correct process improvement tools, and generating fresh and unique offerings to meet evolving customer needs.
