In this 60-minute webinar, you'll learn why data is a key asset in Smart Manufacturing and how it leads to smarter control and decision making. You'll understand how Smart Manufacturing breaks down compartmentalization throughout manufacturing to provide new opportunities for innovation, competitiveness and sustainability. This webinar goes on to explore the heart of Smart Manufacturing, an open, industry-driven infrastructure called the SM Platform and Marketplace. You'll examine how it addresses integration as a common service and results in a new level of user-driven knowledge not currently available. You'll leave with a new business strategy for tomorrow that you can follow to continuously improve and expand resources, drive best practices, and developed market-driven services.

Take a look at your agenda:

  • Smart Manufacturing in today's process facility
  • How data has become a key asset
  • The SM Platform and Marketplace
  • Addressing systems integration as a common service
  • A new business strategy for the future
