Welcome & Introduction
Shane will provide an overview of the day's agenda with tips for getting the most out of your day and jump starting your own Digital Transformation.
9:10 AM - 9:40 AM
Digital Agility in the Evolving World of Industry 4.0 and IIoT
Automation, IIoT, machine learning, artificial intelligence and augmented reality – the next decade promises to be the digital revolution of the industrial world. Our challenge is integrating legacy systems and assets with new technologies to harness the explosion of data to drive new opportunities without risking existing operations. This keynote will cover the challenges of the digital revolution and best practices for establishing an enterprise data infrastructure to support your digital transformation as you invest in edge, enterprise and cloud technologies.
9:45 AM - 10:15 AM
Game Changing Technology for Bioengineered Human Acellular Vessels:
Humacyte grows stable, lifesaving vascular access or replacement segments of patient blood vessels. Growing smooth vascular muscle cells requires accurate real time data to ensure quality, compliance, and speed to market for a broad range of disease conditions. Explore the science of how the PI System helps empower Humacyte’s transformation from trials to safe commercialization of Humacyl  a biologic vessel alternative to synthetic vessels.
10:20 AM - 10:50 AM
CBM: Just Right, Just-in-Time Maintenance
We are being asked to run equipment longer, faster, and harder with less resources while minimizing failures. Condition based maintenance (CBM) takes a data driven approach to maximizing the performance of your assets and maintenance schedules.  Discover how the PI System can be used for CBM through simple drag and drop configuration. Configure digital representations of your assets, calculate key performance indicators (KPIs), and even send notifications or kick off maintenance work flows based on the real condition of your assets.  Jump-starting your CBM project has never been easier with the modern PI System.
10:50 AM - 11:10 AM
11:10 AM - 11:40 AM
Real Time PI Chromatography Transition Analysis
A Pharma application of the PI System
11:45 AM - 12:15 PM
Analytics: Whether Big Data or Little Data, it's What You Do that Counts
Big data, data lakes, machine learning and artificial intelligence are offering the allure of new insights and answers to efficiencies.  But sometimes the first big win comes from a little improvement using the data your already own.  Learn how you can break down seemingly complex big data problems into a manageable sequence of steps with the PI System.  Even without waiting for completion of a full-blown statistical model, your operational experts can often spot anomalous patterns with little more than a few events captured as PI System event frames and displayed in a report.  And when you are ready to push data to advanced machine learning (ML) tools, the PI Integrator line is available to jump-start your data science initiative with clean, ready-to-consume, reliable data. 
12:15 PM - 1:45 PM

The Digitalization of Manufacturing
Digitalization is the path most of the manufacturing companies are following in order to improve efficiencies and remain competitive. The Process Industries are adopting trends like Industry 4.0, Big Data, and IIoT to make it happen. These are concepts that are easily understandable when framed as a means to a goal and embraced as a journey. This presentation will show the use cases in the Pulp and Paper industry for the adoption of digitalization and analytics, its challenges and the way to overcome them.
2:35 PM - 3:05 PM
Beat the Sheet: Escape the Spreadsheet with Automated Reports for Energy Optimization

A picture is worth a thousand words.  That's why executives and managers around the world rely on visual reports and dashboards to stay in touch with the health of their businesses.  Generating these reports is often a tedious, time-consuming task that repeats every month, quarter, or year.  In this session, you’ll see how you can quickly access disparate data coming from both legacy and new IoT sources to deliver smart, real-time dashboards that drive visibility across the enterprise.  And that monthly compliance report?  The PI System allows you to easily refresh reports and be alerted to compliance deviations before they become an issue.
