The lack of safety is potentially the greatest financial expense in any plant, and the human cost is incalculable.
The Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit (GAMS) event at IMTS 2018 highlighted the opportunities and pitfalls of the digital age with a focus on maintenance, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), robotics, and cybersecurity in an information-rich age.
One of the panelists in the GAMS session on maintenance and IIoT is Kevin Price from Infor, who has the entertaining title of “technical evangelist”. In the Plant Engineering Mid-Year Report, Price evangelizes about the relationship between safety and enterprise asset management. He notes the relationship between data and operational efficiency.
