Using Digital Transformation and the Industrial Edge to Reduce Unscheduled Downtime

This session will discuss manufacturers' biggest nemesis - unscheduled downtime - and how digital transformation and the industrial edge can be used to reduce or eliminate it.  The session will focus on how digital transformation drives change, the essential elements for success with digital transformation, how the industrial edge is a key element in your digital transformation implementation, key architectural principles and options, requirements for successful edge implementation, and examples of edge-based digital transformation in action.

Case studies will offer need-to-know guidance on "must haves" for OT or IT leaders looking to maximize the availability of their production systems by eliminating or reducing unscheduled downtime, with a focus on skills and actionable recommendations to drive adoption of the best solutions to improve processes and production. 

Persons wanting to learn about the industrial edge and its role in helping to reduce unscheduled downtime, as well as those involved with control systems and/or production management software should attend to gain insight into real world examples of downtime reduction success stories, what lessons were learned, and what were the actual derived business benefits. ​​
