MINNEAPOLIS, MN, UNITED STATES, July 28, 2020 / -- Columbus U.S. will host a virtual summit for the Manufacturing Industry on July 30, 2020. The no-cost event is geared towards professionals in the discrete manufacturing industry who work with business applications that drive supply chain success and data-driven organizational insights.

“We want people to understand the possibilities available to them when they have the right tools and know how to leverage those tools in order to achieve better business outcomes,” says Columbus Director of Marketing Patric Timmermans.

The event will feature four main sessions, including two customer case studies and demo-oriented materials that focus on Microsoft Technology Solutions.

In the Customer Spotlight Session, Carol Wills, Controller at defense manufacturing company CymSTAR will present alongside Columbus Data & Analytics Practice Director Michael Simms. The session will go in-depth about what it takes for manufacturers to have a smooth ERP migration and how manufacturing companies can maximize on their technology investment.

Michael Simms will be back on in the afternoon, telling the story of the Data Journey through the lens of a customer case study. He will tell the story of how a Columbus manufacturing customer managed to shorten its quality control response time from 6-8 weeks to 2-4 days and explain how your manufacturing company can improve operations with data & analytics too.

The virtual summit will also include a Data and Analytics in Manufacturing demo led by Columbus’ Digital Advisory team. The session includes a demonstration on how data can be extracted from Microsoft Dynamics 365 and input into an Azure Machine Learning model and published as an Azure service. The presenters will also discuss the Data Journey and explain how data and analytics insights can be invaluable from the basic stages to the more advanced capabilities.

Another demo-session, Tracking and Tracing in Manufacturing, focuses on Supply Chain success and will discuss and demonstrate how technology can drive a proactive business model with actionable steps.
