There are many great conferences where process manufacturers and producers can share best practices and exchange knowledge with their peers. Our Emerson Exchange conferences—coming April 14-16 in Brussels and October 24-28 here in Austin—are but one example.
Another great example is the ARC Advisory Group’s Industry Forum next week in Orlando. Many big topics will be discussed including the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Smart Manufacturing, Industrie 4.0, Digitization, and the Connected Enterprise.
I had the honor to speak at the ARC Industry Forum several years ago. My message was about the shared interest for process manufacturers and producers and their suppliers to take advantage of the social networks to more closely connect together to solve the problems at hand in making plants safer, more efficient and more reliable.
I appreciate any comments and perspectives on collaboration through the social networks!
