The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has brought increasing emphasis on interconnecting sensors and devices in manufacturing facilities. Learn how applications utilizing cloud computing and AI are helping organizations leverage their IIoT infrastructure. Identify what has help to move IIoT beyond the confines of IT to the shop floor, all to optimize efficiencies and productivity.

While IIoT enables faster and better reactions to operating conditions, even better trained staff are needed to understand and control these systems and to adapt them to changes more rapidly. Learn how a 'people-focused' IIoT can enable industrial enterprises to harness true workforce know-how to maximize plant operations, increase production efficiency and ensure employee safety.

Discover how Plant Process Management (PPM) systems can help manage, monitor and optimize plants in addition to work activities, operations and production assets. We'll illustrate how PPM delivers on the requirements for all plant operations, regardless of the use of automation, IoT instrumentation, machine learning (ML) or predictive maintenance.

Even though COVID-19 has put a strain on conducting safe operations, hear how PPM can safeguard manufacturers from risk and further optimize operations. We'll cover:

  • Capturing and sharing best practices for employee safety
  • Implementing real-time incident tracking to conduct corrective action
  • More cohesive collaboration and integration among IT/OT teams and systems
  • Advantages of interactive production loss accounting and cross-departmental improvement of asset utilization

We'll answer key questions including:

  • Is it possible to digitally transform 24/7 operations with PPM, without a full IIoT roll-out?
  • Why is PPM a low-risk and high-impact investment in the process industry?
  • Why to reconcile IIoT data with human knowledge?
  • How does one safeguard the loss of vital knowledge as older workers retire and are not replaced as quickly as they leave?
  • What are the digital tools that could help teams communicate, coordinate, and co-operate - wherever they happen to be?

For the second year, the event is being conducted on an online platform.
