ISA Announces ARC Executive Management Forum to Be Held at ISA Automation Week 2010
Research Triangle Park, NC (10 June 2010)—ISA announced today that ARC Advisory Group will present the ARC Executive Management Forum, “ARC Inside: The Business Case for Asset Performance Management” at ISA Automation Week 2010 on Tuesday, 5 October 2010, at the Westin Galleria, Houston, Texas.
ARC's Forum at ISA Automation Week 2010 highlights asset performance management in a venue where thought leaders, companies, and organizations involved in managing critical, high-value assets will examine the challenges and solutions to reduce costs, risk, project cycle time, energy use, and carbon footprint. The Forum targets executive-level industrial automation end users and suppliers in departments such as IT, plant operations, program maintenance, enterprise integration, and asset management.
“The ARC Forum adds tremendous value to ISA Automation Week, as it offers an intensive one-day track devoted primarily to executives in the industrial automation field,” said Gerald Cockrell, ISA Automation Week 2010 program co-chair. “With the addition of the ARC Forum, ISA Automation Week is now a comprehensive knowledge-focused event reaching professionals not only actively working in the automation field, but also the strategic decision makers who might not normally attend a technical conference.”
Several ARC Advisory Group analysts will be making presentations and participating in various panel discussions during ARC Inside. The five-hour Forum will begin following the ISA Automation Week 2010 opening keynote address and will include three sessions:
ISA Automation Week 2010 is primarily a knowledge-driven event designed to deliver a stimulating and highly relevant educational experience over two and a half days to automation and control professionals working within continuous process, discrete, and hybrid manufacturing environments. In addition to the ARC Forum, ISA Automation Week is offering seven technical conference tracks: Automation and Control, Energy, Environmental, Human Asset Optimization, Safety, Security, and Wireless and Networking. Each session is developed to cover information critical to five identified career paths: Engineer, Technician, Management, Marketing, and Academia/R&D/Scientists.
