MESA Smart Manufacturing Community: Smart Connected Factory: Data Management Foundation for a Smart Connected Factory

Wednesday, May 11, 2022 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (CDT)


Come share your experiences, stories, questions, and what you have learned in a safe, non-commercial environment. We seek to understand the state-of-the market, understand what companies have done that has or has not worked, documenting questions that MESA and the community can help answer. Overall, the goal is to accelerate each participant’s learning and progress toward Smart Manufacturing. 

Topic: Data Management Foundation for a Smart Connected Factory

One of the biggest gaps in most companies' technology for the Smart Connected Factory is a coherent way to manage all of the data to gain maximum insight and agility.  It is not easy, with many aspects that need to come together.

  • How do you harmonize data from a huge variety of equipment, IoT, and applications?
  • Where are you on the journey to a smooth way to leverage diverse data on the plant floor?
  • How important is data context, and what means do you use to create it?
  • What are the keys to ensuring you continue to make progress toward usable, comprehensive data?
  • To what extent do you use or expect a coherent platform for manufacturing data management vs. multiple systems, each with their own role?
  • What needs to change in the plant operations to incorporate broader data sets into the factory's day-to-day work?

Join us on May 11 to discuss this crucial foundation for a smart connected factory. Please bring your own questions and be ready to share experiences and views.
