Data-driven sawmilling at OptiSaw West!

April 25, 2016 - As competitive pressure builds, and cost reduction and process optimization pressures take hold, sawmill operators are searching for a sustainable and lasting competitive advantage. At OptiSaw West, automation and robotics guru David McPhail will explore the benefits and concepts surrounding data-driven manufacturing and how these concepts can be applied to the wood processing industry.

This presentation will include how the next gen of technology in David's field can help sawmillers deal with the dual issues of labour constraints and unit cost as well as offer a few examples of these concepts put into place in Canada's manufacturing sector.

As president and CEO of MEMEX (Measuring Manufacturing Excellence), David has worked with manufacturers in a wide variety of sectors to drive performance and efficiency gains. He'll share that unique perspective with the sawmill sector in Richmond on June 14.
