Jason Spera is the CEO and Co-founder of Aegis Software, a leader in MES/MOM software platforms for discrete manufacturers with particular expertise in electronics manufacturing. Founded in 1997, today more than 2,200 factory sites worldwide use some form of Aegis software to improve productivity and quality while meeting regulatory, compliance and traceability challenges. Spera's background as a manufacturing engineer in an electronics manufacturing company and the needs he saw in that role led to the creation of the original software products, and continue to inform the vision that drives Aegis solutions today. He regularly speaks on topics surrounding factory digitization, IIoT, and Industry 4.0.
During this presentation, Jason Spera will discuss what it actually takes to achieve Industry 4.0 benefits via IIoT---and the inconvenient truth is that it’s not as simple as some would like you to believe. He will go over key questions you need to ask your solution provider, today, regarding IIoT, MES, and Industry 4.0 technologies. Jason will also address why a native edge approach, that standardizes and contextualizes data, across products, processes, and machines, without customization, is the optimal path forward. Finally, he will share how to break the cycle of failed IIoT/Industry 4.0 initiatives and begin to achieve a return on your investment(s).
