Conference aims to sharpen the tools of manufacturing
Registration is now for the WBF 2011 North American Conference, which will focus on the manufacturing processes of the industry.
WBF, the Organization for Production Technology, has announced that registration is open for the 2011 North American Conference, “Sharpening the Tools of Manufacturing,” to be held May 23-25 at the University of Delaware Clayton Hall Conference Center in Newark, Delaware.
Conference Objectives include educating attendees through presentations, tutorials, networking and one-on-one discussions about the latest trends, successes, lessons learned and tools that can be used to improve the manufacturing processes of the attendees’ companies, clients and customers; provide an atmosphere for the leaders in the manufacturing automation industry to freely discuss emerging technologies, to share ideas, and to discuss methods for improving manufacturing; present a program to educate and stimulate interest in applying the industry standards, including S88, S95, S99, S84, S101 and S106 to manufacturing processes and systems, highlighting the benefits of applying these standards and giving the attendee the know-how to do so.
The agenda has been finalized and can be found on the WBF conference registration website.
About last year’s conference, ARC noted:
"The WBF Conference provides a valuable and unique service to automation professionals and senior management in that it is the only conference where practitioners of ISA-88 and ISA-95 can come to learn how others apply these standards to improve the performance of both their processes and their companies. It also is the only place for new automation professionals to receive practical training on these and other standards, learning from the true experts in the field of automation and control."
Sponsorship opportunities and tabletop exhibit spaces are also available for companies wanting to showcase their products to an elite group of professionals in the manufacturing and automation industry.
