MESA European Conference goes to Prague

Manufacturing Plant-to-Enterprise group focuses on strategic issues


MESA International, the Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association, is announcing its 2008 European Plant-to-Enterprise Conference, 3-4

Building on the success of last year's conference, the second European Plant-to-Enterprise Conference will focus on "Delivering on Strategies" and the new MESA strategic initiatives. The association’s efforts are focused on information technology use to support the real-time events occurring during the production process and how this same information can be used to support broader company and value chain objectives such as lean manufacturing, collaborative supply chain management, regulatory compliance, etc.

“Especially in these uncertain‘financial’ times, manufacturers have to be very cautious and very focused in order to successfully achieve their strategic and operational objectives. The MESA Strategic Initiatives guidebooks will be launched after the conference and will offer many very valuable best practices!” says Jan Snoeij, Chair of MESA European Board and Principal Consultant at Logica.

Prominent manufacturers and industry experts will share their experience with strategic initiatives, application of standards, and practical cases in various sessions.s and experience across the industries.
This year’s conference is supported by Atos Origin and ATS as conference sponsors, as well as by GE Fanuc, SAP, Rockwell Automation, Invensys Wonderware, Siemens, Cordys, IBM, Microsoft, MPDV, Ligththouse Systems, Logica, Apriso, Citect, Camstar, Tata Consulting and Fraunhofer Institute.More detailed information about the conference and on-line registration is available at
