Information Technology In Manufacturing & DistributionSponsor: Cambridge Technology Partners & Peoplesoft Corporation
Automation, robotics and the application of computer technology to manufacturing has made changes that were not even dreamed of twenty five years ago, except in the minds of the most avant-garde science fiction writers. In the last quarter of the 20th Century almost every aspect of manufacturing and distribution processes have changed, much of what we now consider normal, from just-in-time manufacturing to global positioning control of delivery schedules, was once considered impossible. So how much will it change in the next 25 years? Which trends will take hold? Which technologies will change, or new ones be invented?
This discussion will examine the latest technologies and computer assisted processes, and consider which of the newer technologies will most affect us. Fully automated factories? Software which can predict every possible change every small specification change might make from a productivity or legal compliance point of view. New technologies being introduced right now, (which we shall cover) allows you far greater control of all manpower, purchasing and scheduling procedures. Technology will increase everything from productivity to the efficient use of capital and expertise. This luncheon will bring together manufacturing, distribution and operations executives with technology experts to discuss the opportunities and potential pitfalls of increased technology in manufacturing and distribution process from R&D; to delivery.
