MESA’s North American Conference includes Roundtable Forums on Tuesday, May 8th 1pm -4pm. Come learn and gain actionable ideas during this interactive pre-conference workshop, break into sub-groups, and discuss Smart Manufacturing initiatives, priorities and tactics. 

Attend MESA’s Smart Manufacturing Track on Wednesday and Thursday to understand the spectrum of digital manufacturing transformation, the journey, and lessons learned along the way. Smart Manufacturing track sessions are great for anyone wanting to establish, stabilize, or mature their manufacturing operation’s digital enterprise. Learn Smart lessons from small-sized manufacturers to industry giants including Trelleborg, Virgin Orbit, Vecima, and Quad/Graphics.

The final session of the Smart Manufacturing track on Thursday, May 10th 11am – 12pm.  Analytics that Matter, unpacks research contributed by manufacturing professionals around the world about how they focus their performance metrics to drive decisions. The MESA session is in collaboration with LNS Research and is the product of the 7th biennial survey conducted by MESA.

The survey is for any size manufacturer and is due by April 13th. Your anonymous data will be included in the performance metrics benchmarking during this session. Survey participants will also receive a copy of the public 2018 ‘Analytics that Matter Research’ project report even if they cannot attend Thursday’s session.

The pace of technology evolution is rapid, and the research conducted here can assist manufacturing organizations who want to understand:
  • How to view the role and value of IIoT technologies in harnessing the power of today’s data-rich devices and systems
  • The effects of advanced analytics combined with practices and capabilities on manufacturing operations performance and business financial results

MESA is also offering attendees complimentary consulting without a sales-pitch at their FIX EVENT during expo hours. Tables will be clearly designated on the expo floor. See floorplan for details
