You could’ve chosen to be a doctor, lawyer, truck driver or any number of things. Somehow, you ended up in industrial automation (truck driving sounds more peaceful, doesn’t it?). It’s a crazy industry that’s constantly changing. Our goal at EECO is to make a positive impact on the future of industrial automation – not just for us, but generations to come. This is what we hope to do at Rockwell Automation on the Move next month.
Everything is changing so fast. We’re constantly hearing about “smart this, globalization of that, IIOT, factory of the future,” and on and on it goes. It’s all here; it’s now and access to faster and smarter information will help you make the best and quickest decisions for your business.
“Connected Enterprise” is a hot topic that we will spend a lot of time on at RAOTM. Sounds good, right? But what is it? Think about all the insane, actionable data you could access if your machines were talking to each other and relaying everything into the upper level ERP or MES. This data could help you avoid downtime, decrease the total cost of ownership, plan scheduled downtime and increase profitability overall. It doesn’t even matter your type of business or end product.
Thomas Edison said it best when he said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. There’s a way to do it better – find it.”
Here are some technical sessions that will be available to help you “find it” at ROATM.
|T01 – Data Management and Reporting Made Simple: The integration of control data (live and historical) with business systems is critical in today’s manufacturing environment. The seamless integration and access of this data in a form that provides decision-making capabilities is crucial. Rockwell Automation helps deliver that seamless integration with the latest releases of FactoryTalk® Historian and VantagePoint® – featuring synchronized methodology for collecting, maintaining, and analyzing process data at each level of manufacturing operations.
T10 – Smart Devices – Helping Design, Operate and Maintain The Connected Enterprise: Smart devices (sensors, starters, drives, overload relays, power and condition monitors, safety components and scanners etc.) deliver real time control and information that feeds up through your smart connected plant. This session will take a look under the hood and give an overview and demonstration of some of our smart “edge” devices and show how they can help during the design, operation and maintenance of The Connected Enterprise.
T121 – Enabling The Connected Enterprise from a Maintenance Perspective: Enabling the Internet of Things through a simpler, less complex maintenance supportable network is critical in the overall adoption of The Connected Enterprise. We will explore OT based alternatives that engage engineering, process, I&C and maintenance techs to drive increased acceptance at the device level.
CT407 – Connected Enterprise and the IIOT with Rockwell Automation and CISCO: Today’s modern manufacturing environments and companies are taking advantage of advance networking, data collection and analytics. Come learn how your company can take full advantage of new technologies and approaches to the Industrial Internet of Things in a Connected Enterprise.
CT409 – Improve Visibility into The Connected Enterprise and IT Infrastructure: The Connected Enterprise builds on the integrated set of IT components including controllers, servers, network infrastructure and applications. Learn how setup and monitoring can be simplifi ed while building in alerts and monitoring throughout your HMI systems. Solution Provider RoviSys presents
Rockwell Automation on the Move will be held August 30-31 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. Register today for this event.
