Webcast on CE survey to explore toughest challenges

Oak Brook, IL—The toughest challenges facing 850 engineers and technical professionals, who responded to a recent Control Engineering survey, will be examined in a Webcast at 11 a.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) on Sept. 22. 


Oak Brook, IL— Analysts, vendors, and publications regularly promote one issue or another as the most important for manufacturers to deal with immediately. But what do you think about these claims? What are your most significant challenges?

In June 2004, more than 850 Control Engineering readers responded to a survey designed to assess what engineers and operations management think of the challenges surrounding:

  • Existing production operation optimization;

  • Production IT system standardization;

  • Manufacturing capability to promise

  • Regulatory requirements;

  • Make-to-demand vs. make-to-stock; and

  • Corporate standardization mandates.

Now, please join us for a Webcast at 11 a.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) on Sept. 22 to hear:

  • David Greenfield, Control Engineering 's editorial director, who will present major findings from the research study, and analyze survey numbers to help you better understand the state of manufacturing today as it addresses its most pressing challenges.

  • Kevin Roach, GE Fanuc Automation's global solutions VP, who will discuss how to approach production operation optimization; the openness and compatibility of available solutions with existing systems; and the time and costs associated with implementing these solutions.
