(InfinityQS: Chantilly, VA) -- InfinityQS International Inc., a global provider of manufacturing intelligence and enterprise quality, announced Simon Ellis, the practice director of supply-chain strategies at IDC Manufacturing Insights, as the keynote speaker for its sixth annual user conference, Infusion 2012. Ellis will offer his insight on the role of real-time manufacturing intelligence in improving product quality, reducing costs, and making better business decisions. While sharing results from the recent supply chain survey, “Business Strategy: 2012 Supply Chain Survey Results and Insights, July 2012,” Ellis will lend his expertise to assist manufacturer attendees—at all levels, from engineers to executives—in understanding the importance of finding, analyzing, and utilizing data to improve operations both on the plant floor and throughout the supply chain.
“When considering supply chain management, there is an extensive amount of valuable information that companies are not taking advantage of,” says Ellis. “With the transition to the new intelligent economy, it is imperative for manufacturers to begin implementing technology that will better collect and leverage manufacturing intelligence to support business processes and assist in making smarter, more strategic business decisions.”
Held in Denver, Sept. 23–28, Infusion 2012 will define the impact of quality on the future of manufacturing and showcase the need for a global quality system across the supply chain through customer case studies and expert best-practice sessions.
