ARC offers WebForums on manufacturing, wireless

By Plant Engineering Staff April 14, 2006

As part of its second quarter WebForum series, ARC Advisory Group will highlight recent research findings in the manufacturing and supply chain industries. Each WebForum will be presented by an ARC senior analyst and will be followed by an interactive question and answer session.

“Improving Plant Performance through Design, Operate, Maintain Interoperability” will be aired May 18 at 11 a.m. EST. This WebForum will discuss plant performance improvement, a new model incorporating Design, Operate, and Maintain (DOM) as the three factors of plant performance will be described and the critical interdependencies between these factors will be examined. DOM Interoperability is identified as a vital component of Plant Performance Improvement.

“Emerging Wireless Technologies in Manufacturing” will air on June 12 at 11 a.m. EST. The development of battery-powered wireless products has been very challenging and long in coming. How can manufacturers deploy them successfully for the long term when their underlying technology is changing so rapidly? What should serve as a long-term roadmap and what will be the impact of other technologies or industries? This WebForum will explore these questions and provide a perspective of where wireless is headed in manufacturing. This WebForum will be presented by Senior Analyst Harry Forbes.
