Join the Conversation: How real-time manufacturing analytics is changing the game
Join the conversation about real-time manufacturing analytics and intelligence and their place in process manufacturing. Hosted by Northwest Analytics, these invitation-only forums have captured the attention of leading global manufacturers with representatives in attendance from BASF, Shell, AkzoNobel, Air Liquide, Molex, IBM, and many more.
Keynote speaker Dr. Lloyd Colegrove, Data Services Director & Fundamental Problem Solving Director for The Dow Chemical Company, will set the stage for the days' conversations by framing the challenges encountered by Dow and others that can be addressed by the application of real-time analytics on existing process data.
With aging systems, disparate data sources, and a lack of process knowledge, manufacturers are struggling to make sense of their data. At this event, process data analytics visionary Colegrove will share with the attendees Dow's journey to enterprise manufacturing intelligence (EMI) or simply put, "making the data work for us".
"These Forums are an unmatched opportunity for industry leaders to not only join the conversation about how today's analytics tools help realize efficiencies, but gives them the ability to walk away with an understanding of what questions to ask next to incorporate the information they learned into their own environments," noted Dr. Colegrove.
This invitation-only event highlights the innovative use of analytics by leading chemical manufacturers to unlock the potential and value of existing process data. The Manufacturing Leadership Forum’s unique format combines real-world case studies in the chemical industry and an interactive exchange of ideas among peers to advance the use of data and analytics to drive improvements in manufacturing processes and the supply chain.
