Special Sessions

Special sessions are organised to raise visibility on topics of focused interest in a particular scientific or applications area. Comprising a number of papers focussed on a specific theme, which has been proposed by the Special Sessions chair/s, it's a great opportunity to address a topic with the right depth, giving it the proper visibility, and allowing also time for discussion and networking.

Industry Panel 

Panel on Enabling Smart Manufacturing

There have been a number of different terms used to describe exploiting the explosion in manufacturing and enterprise data by applying computing power and newer information technologies[1] to do things more efficiently (or "smarter") in manufacturing operations and supply chain management.  In the Gartner brief entitled "The Manufacturing Performance Dilemma, Part 2: From Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence to Operations Intelligence" this is called Operations Intelligence + Operations Process Management (OI+OPM).  The ARC Advisory Group has a notion termed Information Driven Manufacturing that is very similar.  Others refer to Collaborative Manufacturing.  The Smart Manufacturing Research Coalition (SMLC) has been using the term Smart Manufacturing for this (though they apply the approach to a number of different areas, not just operations), and this term has gotten some uptake and appeared in various publications.  Smart Manufacturing is the term that we have adopted for this panel.

This panel is meant to determine what is happening in this space. What are the visions for it? Is there an emerging consensus on what it is, what to call it, and how to use it?  Where is it being used?  What products are available to support it? Are there standards, platforms (open source or otherwise), architectures, virtual communities or other pre-competitive elements that could accelerate its deployment in industry and make it easily available to small and medium sized manufacturers?



[1] Information technologies often associated with Smart Manufacturing include cloud computing; high performance computing; data integration; analytics; modeling, simulation and analysis; mobile computing; and workflow automation.
