The industry events, held in seven locations throughout the US, Latin America, Europe and Asia, will target a variety of industry topics such as innovative production and software strategies.

Wonderware aims to highlight technologies that can be delivered through the use of Wonderware software solutions for manufacturing execution systems (MES), enterprise manufacturing intelligence (EMI), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and human-machine interface (HMI).

Mark Davidson, vice president of global marketing, said: ‘Wonderware is again offering a popular forum for customers, key partners and other industry leaders to share important innovations on how to best approach the continuous drive towards operational excellence.

‘Wonderware recognises that operational excellence is not achieved through a single project or initiative, nor is it made possible by one portion of a customer’s or partner’s organisation. The 2008 WonderWorld global conference series is designed to provide important, relevant content for each team member with information that is specific to their role in achieving real-time operational excellence from industrial and manufacturing executives, to operations managers, IT professionals and plant automation and maintenance engineers.’

The conferences will feature educational sessions led by industry experts from Wonderware, Microsoft, Mitsubishi Electric, SAP and other key business and technology leaders. These sessions will offer insight on how companies can achieve greater speed, efficiency, collaboration and innovation to improve overall operations efficiency.

Featured speakers during the various events will include Sudipta Bhattacharya, president of Wonderware; Charles Johnson, vice president of manufacturing industries at Microsoft; Cindy Jutras, vice president and group director for ERP and manufacturing at Aberdeen Group; and selected Wonderware customers, partners, trade press and industry speakers that represent a wide range of industrial automation and information market segments.

Topics to be presented at the conference series are designed to provide business operations executives and managers, information technology professionals, automation and engineering personnel and Wonderware solution providers with information on how companies can optimise their production operations and overall business operations. Attendees will obtain information on Wonderware software solutions.

This year’s conference will feature the Wonderware Open, an annual contest that recognises noteworthy applications created using Wonderware software.

Wonderware and industry press will be judging entries for the best applications in HMI, SCADA, MES and EMI categories. The best applications, based on business value generated, will be selected during the WonderWorld conference at the North America and Europe events.

Attendees can participate in networking and demonstration activities that will be held at the on-site WonderWorld Innovation Partner Expo, which will feature hands-on demos of innovative solutions from Wonderware and its partners that align real-time operational excellence for manufacturing operations and infrastructure operations. Optional product and technology training also will be offered at selected WonderWorld venues for attendees who would like to maximise the Wonderware education experience.
