Purdue University plans to hold a two-day forum entitled “Catching the Digital Wave” from Oct. 17 to 18 in West Lafayette, IN on issues facing manufacturers as digital technologies come into use in production environments.
Aimed at industry representatives, academics, and government officials, the university’s event will examine approaches to developing Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) competitiveness plans, educating the workforce on Internet 4.0 concepts, methods of utilizing digital technologies in manufacturing settings, and more.
“The Purdue Manufacturing Forum will provide a venue by which these challenges can be articulated as well as illumination of a path forward around the adoption of digitial manufacturing technologies and the preparation and support of a 21st-century workforce,” said Nathan W. Hartman, Dauch Family Professor of Advanced Manufacturing at Purdue, in a university press release announcing the forum.
Presented in a “town hall” format, presenters will discuss issues with panelists and then field audience questions.
The event will be held at the Shiveley Club in Ross-Ade Pavilion. Registration is open until Oct. 10. For more information visit Purdue’s event page for the forum.
