Synchrono®, a leader in demand-driven manufacturing software, today announced its sponsorship of the Manufacturing Technology Strategies track at the IndustryWeek Manufacturing & Technology Conference & Expo, to be held May 3-5 in Rosemont, Illinois.
With a focus on lean manufacturing and continuous improvement, the conference is dedicated to helping manufacturers improve their operations. The event features plant tours, keynote presentations, numerous breakout sessions, networking events and an exhibit hall, all aimed at providing manufacturing professionals with ideas they can take back to their facilities and implement to improve their operations.
“Manufacturing and technology are merging like never before,” notes Pam Bednar, Synchrono Vice President of Marketing. “Manufacturers looking for technologies that will help them compete and innovate will not only find them at the Industry Week Conference & Expo, but will hear directly from manufacturers who have put them into play.” In sponsoring the Manufacturing Technology Strategies track, Synchrono is supporting like-minded solutions providers bringing agile and affordable technologies to manufacturers that will provide impact today — and well into the future.
As sponsor of the Best Plants Manufacturing Technology Strategies track, Synchrono will co-present a case study with client, Orbital ATK Aerospace Structures Division (ASD), a leading supplier of critical composite structures for the aerospace and defense industries. During the session, How Orbital ATK is Leveraging the IIoT and Visual Factory Technology to Drive Continuous Performance Improvements, attendees will learn how ASD is collecting, analyzing and visualizing vast amounts of data using a visual factory information system. Through this system, they are able to connect to multiple software systems, machines and tools to monitor individual, work cell and plant activities and metrics indicating status, performance, quality, and more. Orbital ATK will also reveal how this unprecedented access to real-time data is informing their continuous improvement efforts — and their results.
