Implementing Digital Enterprise (DE) Systems

The meeting will open with a panel session covering best known methods from current DE system implementations, how to prepare and execute DE system deployment plans, and how SME anticipate complying with OEM requirements. What are the “ah-hahs” that we will see 2-3 years from now? How will the convergence of different data streams and processes come together to make better organizations?

Using IIoT Technologies to Drive Cost Modeling in the Digital Enterprise

One of the more effective opportunities to deploy IIoT technologies is around the ability to capture materials and production data to determine and control costs. This presentation will provide an overview of predictive cost modeling and the use of IIoT technologies to gather process and materials information, with an eye toward closing the feedback loop to the product design function.

Continuous Digital Value Streams: Challenges and Opportunities

The panelists in this session will provide their views on a variety of topics that will impact the ability of companies to efficiently and effectively implement DE technologies, including: cybersecurity concerns, employee roles and responsibilities (e.g., off-hours obligations), opportunities for SMEs, and sustainment over the product lifecycle.

Impact of Digital Enterprise Systems on User Interfaces and Experiences

The user experience provided by manufacturing sector companies to their workforces is starkly different from, but needs to become more like, the user experience provided by consumer-oriented businesses to those same workers in their roles as consumers. The presentation will provide inputs into the changes that will need to be made to industrial UI/UX applications to maintain and improve operational efficiencies.
