OMAC Launches Technical Symposium

The first annual event will focus on bridging the gap between discrete and process industries.

Attempting to move the OMAC Users Group toward further collaboration and broader representation, its leadership team has created its first annual Technical Symposium, titled, “Bridging the Gap between the Discrete and Process Industries.” The event, sponsored by OMAC (for Open Modular Architecture Control), will be held at the Future of Flight Aviation Center at Boeing, and the Hilton Garden, in Everett, Wash., on Nov. 28-29. 

This two-day special event will focus on integrating the discrete and process industries using standards like those for computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and numeric control, inspection, computer-aided design (CAD) definition, data packaging, process planning and automotive manufacturing. 

Some highlights of the symposium include:

•OMAC Working Group meetings
•A tour of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner Manufacturing Facility and Future of Flight Aviation Center
•Case studies focusing on the discrete and process industries focused on leveraging best practices
•How to better leverage OMAC guidelines
•Break-out sessions
•Networking and learning opportunities. 

Seating capacity for the event is limited to 150 attendees and registration is first-come-first-served. Registration prices are $295 for OMAC members and $350 for non-members.
