Driving plant-floor information throughout the enterprise has never been more important. Thanks to an array of new tools and strategies, it's also never been easier. But how do you change not just your technology but also your culture to meet the challenges of collaborative manufacturing? Our experts will look at how to change the way your organization interacts, in person and online.

There has been no more volatile issue for plant managers in the past two years than energy. The discussion continues to evolve past just energy usage into creating a sustainable manufacturing environment that utilizes all energy resources without creating waste. We'll look at how such plants turn energy from a cost center into a profit center.

Plant Engineering readers have identified workforce development as the number one issue facing them - ahead of energy, taxes and foreign competition. The issue is getting more attention, but it's also becoming more critical. The Plant Engineering Future 30 program recognizes young engineers age 40 and under to honor our future leaders, bringing together all the key stakeholders - manufacturers, educators and future leaders- to look at how this issue needs to be addressed.
