Chennai: Economictimes. com and CISCO are organising the India Manufacturing Summit 2008, with the theme: Manufacturing 2.0: People, Processes & Technology at Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai on 15th, 13th and 9th May. The seminar will dwell on managing excellence through IT, usage of various strategic tools, harnessing people power and innovation in world class manufacturing and fostering an environment conducive to innovation.

The seminar will cover a wide range of areas that continue to pose a challenge and constraint to achieving higher degrees of manufacturing excellence. Delegates will learn how to achieve maximum efficiency and increased performance throughout the enterprise with the use of best industry practices.

Agenda

"Manufacturing Intelligence: The Key to Continuous Improvement
Learn how companies can gain better production personnel visibility, reporting, and analytics capabilities – enabling rapid response to manufacturing exceptions on the shop floor in real time and delivering this information to the rest of the enterprise. It will also consider how companies can bring this collaboration strategy to customers to capture product-related information from SCM (work orders, supply network, forecast, risks, and so on), SRM (supplier information, various sourcing scenarios, purchase orders, shipment details, and so on) and PLM (for design definition, including bills of material, order management, drawings, and documents). This presentation will also focus on deployment strategy."

Manufacturing Success with IT - Bringing IT and Automation Teams Together
Challenges of creating a global shop floor

"Manufacturing 2.0 - The Next Wave
The time is ripe for radical rethinking of the application architectures, delivery, and supporting business models that support the backlog and accelerating investments required to support the new realities of demand-driven manufacturing. A force-fitting monolithic application into manufacturing operations is costly, risky, time-consuming, and ultimately creates barriers to manufacturing agility and responsiveness. Leveraging scarce manufacturing skills, new user-centric development tools, mobile and RFID sensor technologies, and collaboration tools with strategic design and manufacturing partners should be a part of a company's recipe for meeting the needs of demand-driven manufacturing."

Manufacturers are under constant pressure to deliver innovative products, respond to customer demand quickly, and eliminate costs. "Manufacturing today requires an unprecedented degree of collaboration, coordination and consistency among people, business processes and technology platforms."

According to an IDC report, the total spend on IT by the Manufacturing sector in 2006 is Rs. 9,544 crores and is expected to touch about Rs. 19,600 crores in 2011.

"The culture of using global packaged software applications is now prevalent even among the bottom of the manufacturing pyramid, which is made up of scores of fabrication and process houses. IT solutions in the form of ERP for handling business transactions and CAD/CAM for product design still make up the chunk of technology deployed by Indian manufacturing organizations."

"Business intelligence too is increasingly becoming popular as a mainstream application and is often used in the business context for performance management, executive dashboards and the likes. For, all the solutions -- CAE, ERP, SCM, PDM and CRM —- which are used in the various stages of the manufacturing value chain, hold a lot of data that warrants further analyses."
