GAMS conference: a practical approach to IIoT

By Bob Vavra, CFE Media September 3, 2018

When CFE Media convenes its Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit (GAMS) on Sept, 12, part of the week long IMTS 2018 from Sept. 10-15 in Chicago, the focus for the half-day panel discussions is in identifying practical ways to bring IIoT into the plant floor. Featuring keynotes from Siemens and SAP and with topics focusing of cybersecurity, maintenance and robotics, the event will challenge industry experts to bring IIoT out of the clouds (and the cloud?) to offer immediately action items for the plant management teams to implement. Part of the debut of Hannover Messe USA, GAMS opens on Wednesday, Sept. 12 starting with lunch at 11:30 in Room W-196C at McCormick Place. Registration is now open at this link, and attendees at IMTS and Hannover Messe USA are invited to attend.
