Selecting the right IIoT, OEE and machine monitoring system goes deeper than just looking at features and promises of ROI. Josh Davids, President and CEO of Scytec Consulting Inc. will be our featured speaker and will discuss both positive and negative fundamental components to look for when selecting a machine monitoring system. He will also review best practices to gain acceptance on the shop floor, change the culture, and redefine ‘normal’ as using data as part of the day-to-day processes rather than as an additional task. The Scytec DataXchange software will be used as an example, along with reviewing data from the machines at Abbott. The discussion is intended to be interactive, so all questions are welcome.
4:00 p.m. - Networking
4:30 p.m. - Presentation
5:30 p.m. - Dinner
6:30 p.m. - Tour of Abbott with machine monitoring in use
