By Ken Briodagh August 20, 2018

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), an organization transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), recently announced it will run an Intelligent Manufacturing Solutions Forum, within Hannover Messe USA, co-located with the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS). The forum will be held September 14 from 9am – 12pm, in the Hannover Messe USA Solutions Theater, McCormick Place, Chicago, on Level 2 of the Lakeside Building.

The Intelligent Manufacturing Solutions Forum will feature presentations, use cases and a panel discussion entitled, “Advanced Manufacturing Technologies, Innovations & Testbeds,” followed by a networking reception at the B&R Automation Booth, where the IIC TSN Testbed will also be on display.

Manufacturing industry speakers will discuss IIoT, Cybersecurity, Automation, Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Speakers include:

  • Dr. Said Tabet, Office of the CTO, Chief Architect for IoT Solutions, Dell Technologies & IIC Steering Committee Member
  • Christoph Berlin, Principal Group Program Manager, Azure Industrial IoT, Microsoft Corporation
  • Melissa Ruths, Vice President, Plantweb Solutions and Services, Emerson Automation Solutions

  • Davide Azzolini, Automation Manager, IMA Automation Technology Solutions S.p.A.

“Manufacturing innovations such as predictive maintenance, artificial intelligence and advanced security are only a few of the ways that intelligent manufacturing solutions are changing the IIoT,” said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, IIC. “This forum gives the public an opportunity to hear, first-hand, from industry experts, the insights they have gained by testing and implementing intelligent manufacturing solutions, some through their own practical experiences with IIC testbeds, where they’ve tested the solutions to determine their viability before bringing them to the market.”

The Intelligent Manufacturing Solutions Forum is complimentary and open to all attendees at Hannover Messe USA or IMTS.
