How productive is the plant? SCLE's Make Pavilion sessions focus on metrics & solutions for plant productivity

HOW PRODUCTIVE IS THE PLANT? SupplyChainLinkExpo ''Make pavilion'' sessions focus on metrics & solutions for plant productivity.


The Make portion of the supply chain often fails to get the attention it deserves, but if Make business processes go awry, the entire supply chain suffers. With this in mind, SupplyChainLinkExpo's Make pavilion sessions focus on the metrics, benchmarks, portal solutions, and standards relevant to plant information management. Read this report for an overview of specific metrics and solutions to watch out for.


Control Engineering is working with four participants to do two technology webcasts focused on automation productivity. The two, free online events will be moderated by Mark T. Hoske, Control Engineering's editor-in-chief. Immediately after the initial broadcast of each, viewers can participate in a question and answer session by following the on-screen directions.

The 11 a.m. (EST) Oct. 16 Make Pavilion Roundtable, "Everything you need to know on one screen," features Jamie Bohan, business manager for Honeywell Industry Solutions' Uniformance product line; Chris Colyer, Microsoft's group industry marketing manager for manufacturing; Kevin Roach, global solutions business vp for GE Fanuc, part of GE Industrial Systems. "Everything You Need To Know on One Screen" is sponsored by GE Fanuc.

The 2 p.m. (EST) Oct. 17 Make Pavilion keynote session features Tom Burke, OPC Foundation president and advisory software developer at Rockwell Automation, covering "Standard roadmap to manufacturing productivity."
