I was thrilled to get an invitation to speak at Top Shops Conference.

Modern Machine Shop Top Shops 2017
September 5-7, 2017 
JW Marriott ---- Indianapolis, IN

I am on the Thursday the 7th at 9:45 - 10:45 AM  on the Data Driven Manufacturing Panel

Below is from the Top Shops homepage describing the conference.

"Top Shops participants will notice an emphasis not just on the products and the processes that are driving manufacturing. But, more importantly, visitors will learn from and interact with their peers.

Top Shops will feature other manufacturing professionals who have shared their tips, tools and technologies in an effort to not just benchmark their own business, but to provide other manufacturing enterprises information that can help them improve their operation. Topics covered will include:

  • Advanced Machining Technology
  • Shopfloor Practices
  • Business Strategy
  • Workforce Development
  • Operational Benchmarking
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Robots & Automation
  • Data-Driven Manufacturing"
