IAC Supply Solutions, Inc., recently held a one-day Smart Manufacturing event covering the topic “The Connected Enterprise.” The event’s main purpose was to inform IAC’s manufacturing partners and customers on the ideology, means and methods behind Smart Manufacturing. The event featured guest speakers from Rockwell Automation who detailed the impact of Smart Manufacturing and addressed the ways that data obtained from analytics is projected to change the way that manufacturers do business in the future. Rockwell Automation’s Mark McHam kicked off the event by presenting attendees with an overview of the topic. His presentation was followed by a discussion led by Bill Persyn (also from Rockwell Automation), who shared his recent experiences with high-level analytics and data collection.
“The event was a success for both IAC and Rockwell Automation,” says Darrell Smith, President of IAC Supply Solutions, Inc. “This is a period of profound change for our customers and partners in the manufacturing industry. We realized right away that keeping them informed on the benefits of Smart Manufacturing was crucial in regards to their long-term success, and this event was the perfect way to do it.”
