Who: Neil Desrosiers, Mazak Corporation
When: Wednesday, October 6, 12:30 CST
Topic: Seminar “IOT Foundations”
Neil has been with Mazak for 34 years as an Application Engineer and software developer. Neil is Mazak’s representative at the MTConnect Institute, where he chairs the Machine Tool Working Group as well as sits on the Executive Committee. He was directly involved with the creation of the Mazak SmartBox, a project co-developed with Cisco for managed machine connectivity. He regularly helps customers begin their journey into the connected factory.
Everyone starting the journey of the connected factory wants to make sure they don’t start down the wrong path. They are getting so many buzz words thrown at them that they are scared to take that first step. Many customers have implemented pilot projects only to find they are incompatible and not scalable. Neil breaks down the steps, lists standards, and simplifies it for you.
