Production System Upgrade Leverages Wi-Fi Network

Tuesday, May 22
10:20 - 10:55 am

An ongoing production system upgrade at AW North Carolina (AWNC)—a principal supplier of transmissions to Toyota/Lexus in North America—includes a new MES, inventory management, predictive maintenance and quality systems that transmit most data for collection and analysis over a Wi-Fi network.

John Peterson and Josh Humphrey from AWNC will explain this upgrade in terms of where the company was – from an IT perspective – at the start of the upgrade and where things stand now for both IT and operations. Learn what the company’s near-term plans are with this new system in place.

Joining Peterson and Humphrey will be Cisco’s Dan Wiggins to highlight key aspects of the Wi-Fi network technology in place at AWNC.
