Speakers and Presentations:
Alan Guyan, Technical Design Manager-Innovation
Rapid Prototype Manufacturing - Additive Manufacturing technologies, also known as 3D printing, are already impacting the speed and methods that are used to design new products. The technology has immediate implications for prototype development and small batch manufacturing but in the future may have greater impact on our supply chain strategies.
Matt Felton, President
Datastory Consulting, a Mackenzie Company
Making Sense of Big Data - In our globalized integrated world, new sources of data are continuing to emerge, however making sense of the data in order to support decision making can be nearly impossible. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can provide a lens for combining data elements into a logical and understandable view for understanding supply chain activities and trends.
Michael DelBovo, President
Saddle Creek Transportation Inc.
The Future of Sustainability in Transportation - Mike DelBovo spear-headed a $25 million Compressed Natural Gas project and, in 2012, Saddle Creek unveiled its first 100 Freightliner tractor-trailers powered by compressed natural gas (CNG), along with a fueling station. With Mr. DelBovo’s leadership and guidance, Saddle Creek Corporation became the first freight company in Florida to introduce natural gas to its over-the-road trucking fleet.
