ISA 2022 IIoT & Smart Manufacturing Virtual Conference - Program Chair
CTO - Manufacturing and Supply Chain Industry, Microsoft
Manufacturing is seeing significant changes and transformation in the last few years than some industries have seen in decades. From pandemic induced disruptions, labor shortages to geopolitical impact, the industry has had to rapidly adapt to changing market dynamics, customer needs, and ever-present competitive pressures. In this keynote, you’ll hear from Indranil Sircar, Microsoft’s global CTO for Manufacturing and Supply Chain Industry about top industry trends, art of the possible and how manufacturers are driving their transformation agenda.
VP Advanced Manufacturing Technology, Stanley Black & Decker
Installing a traditional MES can be both complex and costly. Stanley Black and Decker is utilizing Tulip, a next-gen MES solution, to digitize the shop floor and transform operations in an easy and scalable way. In addition, we are improving long-term adoption of digitization with site engagement, utilizing the voice of the customer, and bringing AI-powered video-based learning to manufacturing workers with DeepHow.

With the lack of young people entering the manufacturing workforce, the silver tsunami of thousands of Boomers retiring out of manufacturing daily, and large percentages of equipment decades past their service life, manufacturers are scrambling to fill production demands, keep equipment running and digitalize their organizations.
Cultural changes are needed to be successful with much-needed smart manufacturing projects. In this panel we will discuss how manufacturers are building organizational readiness for scaling up their smart factory projects by:
Director of Industrial Engineeing 4.0, STMicroelectronics
Industry 4.0 and the fourth industrial revolution is the digital transformation of manufacturing/production. Value creation of related industries and ecosystem alignment is an advanced approach to multi-enterprise B2B/EDI integration. This transformation also means integrating the “existing ecosystem” with the “new ecosystem” within the company. In this presentation, we will cover and share a unique approach to such ecosystem integration.
Founder/Director, AIVHY Ltd
President & CEO, ThreatGen
Senior Product Marketing Specialist - Cybersecurity, Phoenix Contact
Eric Cosman, Principal Consultant, OIT Concepts, LLC
Recent development in digitalization, IIoT, and Industry 4.0 introduce (I)IoT devices, cloud connections, and connectivity to industrial assets at the factory floor. All these innovations bring great business value, but perhaps at the cost of reduced Cybersecurity? In this panel, we will discuss Cybersecurity in the smart factory ecosystem, where we aim to answer the following questions:
- What is changing as a result of Industrial innovation, and what are the risks for Cybersecurity?
- Could ISA99/62443 help to address these Cyber risks, and what specific area of the standard can help to define such concerns?
- What could enterprises do today to remain cyber secure while applying innovative, IIoT and Industry 4.0 principles?
Our expert panel discussion will address whether there should be action on a strategy or execution level; what cybersecurity aspects should this strategy focus on; and, concrete takeaways for the audience to start cyber- securing!
VP of Artificial Intelligence, Samsung SDS America
This presentation will focus on the analytics - using ML/AI - that are possible using digitization as a basis. These technologies enable production efficiencies like higher uptime and lower scrap but also enable novel business models like personalized production with lot size of one.
Enterprise Account Executive, Litmus
COO, Lambda Labs
Business Development Manager, Telit
This panel will be looking at real world examples of how ML/AI is currently being deployed, where things went right, and where things went wrong. By the end of the panel audience members should have a good idea of what is possible, probable, and preferrable when it comes to this new frontier of analytics.
Chairman, Malta Digital Innovation Authority
Emerging and existing digital technologies are becoming an integral part of our day to day lives - and are often used in critical services that impact our well being. When technologies can have a potential negative impact on humans it is vital to ensure their adequateness. In this talk aspects of emerging technology regulation will be discussed.
