We’re putting the final touches on the 2019 GE Digital User Conference agenda and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you. It’s packed with industry-leading speakers ready to collaborate with you.
The conference will include product information, a vision for the future of IIoT, and loads of in-depth case studies presented by your peers. There truly is something for every manufacturer to learn, but we also know it can feel a bit overwhelming. Attendees are welcome to attend any session, but we’ve broken down the agenda by industry to highlight some topics you might find particularly valuable.
Our Automotive agenda is designed to improve inefficiencies, optimize production, and quality and reduce unplanned downtime.
With uncertain growth expected across the automotive industry, you need to focus on efficiency and automation. By breaking down information and data silos, automotive manufacturers can tap into previously unused or underutilized data, speed operations, and produce vehicles and parts faster and with greater precision.
You may also find our panel discussion “Getting the Most out of your HMI/SCADA Investment” and “The IoT SCADA: Communication, Security, Data Collection, Advanced Analysis & Alarm Rationalization” particularly relevant as you seek greater access to real-time information across your business.
More than 70% of experienced workforce and leadership will retire in the next 15 years. That’s an incredible burden on organizations, but one we must prepare to address. Low visibility into asset or operations performance on both the plant and enterprise level make this even more pressing. But don’t fear, act. This year’s user conference has several sessions designed to help get you ready for the inevitable change, by eliminating data silos and improving asset utilization.
We are even hosting a panel discussion “Getting the Most out of your APM Investment” which will delve into the practical realities of maximizing a return on asset performance management (APM).
For many food and beverage (F&B) manufacturing/CPG companies, the majority of the workforce is on the plant floor, working at individual pieces of equipment or on production lines. Establishing near real-time visibility into equipment health can empower operators to quickly identify problems and decrease unplanned downtime. But it takes a transformation in how we collect, share, and use data. Our session, “Future of Digital Transformation in Manufacturing” will inspire you to reach for the future.
We aim not only to inspire you, but to show you how to alleviate knowledge gaps by integrating and analyzing the data being generated on production lines, and across the operation. We recommend these five how-to sessions to get you started.
More than 90% of steel manufacturers operate with excessive maintenance costs due to reactive and firefighting maintenance cultures. With increasing pressure on margins and a flood of steel in the market – market leaders are differentiating with lighter stronger materials, minimizing production losses and finding new efficiencies.
Gerdau, the largest Brazilian steel manufacturer and one of the leading suppliers of long steel in the Americas and specialty steel in the world, will share their path to becoming more competitive in “Leveraging Predictive Maintenance to Optimize Assets´ Performance Across Multiple Plants” at this year’s conference.
We’ll also be hosting several sessions that will show you how to create your own path to Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
We’ll even have a panel discussion “Getting the Most out of your APM Investment” and a product session on digital twin technology.
Aging infrastructure and growing water supply demand make increasing equipment availability and reliability crucial. HMI/SCADA helps facilitate the corrective action to remediate a potential equipment problem. Using SES Water’s experience as a backdrop, we’ll explore digital practices that can reduce costs and minimize risk in “Embracing Predictive Maintenance and Data Analytics for Advanced Leak Prevention”.
But that’s not all. We’ll be digging deep into HMI/SCADA investment optimization in these sessions:
