Swimming in Data: Thriving in an Era of Rapid Change - Assess your digital strategy…and maybe catch a wave.


Chicago, Illinois – How efficient are your machines? What are the main sources of downtime and overall equipment efficiency (OEE)? Do you want to know how to successfully implement Industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 technology at your facility? You’re not the only one learning to swim even as the waters rise around you.

Join moderator Russell Waddell from the MTConnect Institute on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 2:00pm CT, in the Student Summit Orientation Theatre, McCormick Place, North Building, Level 1, for the Industry 4.0  and Manufacturing Analytics Panel at IMTS 2018.

Panelists include:

  • Bill Bither, MachineMetrics
  • Natan Linder, Tulip
  • Swen Niebann, Autodesk
  • Rob Keenan, SECO Tools
  • Gary Mankus, Tsugami/Rem Sales

There’s already a dizzying array of new software, networking, and connectivity products to choose from, and the pace of new releases is only increasing. Most are cheap and quick to deploy. All promise massive productivity gains and incredibly short payback times.

How do you figure out the products worth trying? When is the right time to start? And what does starting even look like?

The manufacturing technology industry is changing incredibly rapidly; modern software and networking in the factory is now a question of “when” and not “if.” Attending this panel is a tool to assess your digital strategy…and maybe help you catch a wave.
