    ISA Belgium FPID Symposium


    Two visionary and highly honored innovators- Peter Martin, Ph.D., (VicePresident of Business Value Solutions at Schneider Electric) and Paul McKenzie, Ph.D., (Vice President of Manufacturing and Technical Operations at Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson) will deliver keynote presentations at ISA's 2015 Food & Pharmaceutical Division (FPID) Symposium.


    Dr. Martin's presentation, titled "Applying Control Theory to the Real-Time Value Chain," will center on the need to more effectively apply automation strategies and solutions in order to achieve optimum results. Accomplishing this, he says, requires a better understanding of: the potential value from automation solutions; the barriers to attaining and demonstrating this value; and, the traditional business processes that require adjustment.


    Dr. Martin is a world-renowned expert in the field of automation, having held executive and technical positions in engineering, product and strategic planning, marketing, and training throughout his career. He is a recipient of the ISA Life Achievement Award and has been named as one of InTech magazine's 50 most influential innovators of all time in instrumentation and controls.


    Dr. McKenzie's presentation, titled "Using Data to Optimize Product Life Cycle," will focus on how organizations are recalibrating their knowledge management strategies through better use of information technologies. The result, he says, optimizes the product life cycle.


    In his current position, Dr. McKenzie leads the Janssen Supply Chain (JSC) internal manufacturing and External Supply Integration (ESI) functions, leveraging resources to ensure a balanced emphasis on quality, service, and cost control. Among the companies he worked for before joining J&J are Bristol-Myers Squibb and Merck.
