Nathan Pieri, GVP, Product Management and Strategy
Networked. Agility. Speed. Smarter. Reliability. User centric. Sounds like a wish list for any manufacturer, right?
In his first PowerPlex appearance since joining the Plex team, Nathan Pieri will break down how those terms are actually the six tenets of the Plex Product Vision. Each one gets airtime, along with impressive examples and data points that prove why our customers become the best version of themselves.
With Industry 4.0 in its 10th year, is now the right time to digitize? And how can a business get started or configure their own path to smart manufacturing success? These and many other questions are answered as Nathan takes us through the facts. You’ll hear about scaling up, advanced analytics, machine health monitoring, uptime vs. downtime, and so much more.
Nathan isn’t flying solo on this round. He’ll be joined by Wally Wyniemko and Damian Walker from Hatch Stamping, a customer reaping the rewards of smart manufacturing through Plex IIoT and Mach2. They’ll talk through their projects while showing their actual shop screens and footage from inside the walls of their factory. They’ve customized Plex to meet their needs, and the results are exciting to say the least.
Did you know that Plex invests 20% of revenue in product development? That’s how seriously we take continuous innovation that supports our customers, and Nathan will show you the fruits of that labor.
Jerry Foster, Chief Technology Officer
If you could time travel 20 years into the past, how would you describe digital transformation to manufacturers?
This is just one of many questions Jerry asks a panel of experts as they have an honest and refreshing conversation. During the Unbound Vision main stage event, Jerry will lead this discussion and focus it on the unlimited possibilities of Industry 4.0 and digital transformation. The panelists, comprised of Sudhi Bangalore of Stanley Black & Decker, Grace Perry of Rockwell Automation, and Klaus Loeckel of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, bring the proof points for the smart manufacturing movement.
Such a seasoned group will discuss how to make people a part of the revolution and what driving collaboration inside and outside the plant walls looks like. They’ll define the term “connected worker” and talk about why it’s so difficult to implement manufacturing technology without a passionate partner. No topic is off limits as they also touch on resistance to change, localization, and technologies that might be overhyped.
Smart manufacturing unlocks business value (at least one panelist company just had a record quarter), and likewise, this conversation will unlock value for you. Tune in and you’ll learn how digitalization is a lifeline and represents a great opportunity to rethink operations as the market demands change. You also may or may not hear a reference to Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
