Rockwell Automation will participate in the Plant-to-Enterprise Conference: Delivering on Strategies, in Prague on 3/4 November 2008. During the two-day event, speakers from a variety of industries will offer insight into best practices in leveraging plant-floor resources and systems to deliver strategic initiatives such as Lean, Quality and Regulatory Compliance, the Real-Time Enterprise, Product Lifecycle Management and Asset Performance Management.
Rockwell Automation is a key sponsor of the event and the booth will be staffed by its software business consultants. Visitors will be able to discuss their manufacturing issues and learn more about Rockwell Automation's MES (Manufacturing Execution System), based on FactoryTalk integrated production and performance suite. Rockwell Automation MES, in both process and discrete manufacturing, offers customers a host of benefits such as:
- Turning real-time data into valuable business knowledge
- Improving visibility and control of the production environment and supply chain
- Adapting to change with the agility and speed required in today's marketplace
- Supporting Six Sigma and Lean initiatives
Rockwell Automation will also present its EMI (Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence) products, based on Incuity software. Incuity is a recent acquisition by Rockwell Software. This software easily integrates many disparate information sources from production operations, ERP and IT applications, providing real-time intelligence for business decision support to improve operations and reduce production waste.
