RIoT will lead an educational workshop focused on how the manufacturing industry can leverage connected sensor devices to improve the bottom line. The workshop is appropriate to experienced companies and firms that are still in the exploratory stage of IoT.
The program will open by explaining what the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is and different approaches to use the IIoT to improve efficiency, save cost, and make money. Case study examples will be presented by speakers to include:
Justin Rothwell – CEO of ProAxion – ProAxion sensors drive predictive analytics that allows equipment maintenance to be conducted just-in-time and reduction of unexpected machine failure.
Jason Massey – CEO of ndustrial – ndustrial monitors facility energy consumption and external sensor data to lower costs through optimized HVAC and other systems approaches
Kevin Scofield – VP, Product Management of Xometry – Xometry helps production facilities to maximize utilization rate on capital equipment by feeding the right jobs to the right companies at the right time.
This interactive session is limited to 100 participants to ensure high engagement and time for Q&A with the presenters.
