Attendance is free and space is limited.
The clock is ticking and hotel rooms are almost sold out, but you still have time to register to attend the Digital Manufacturing Symposium. If you've ever wondered how you can use digital manufacturing to its fullest potential, then this is the event for you. We have an outstanding agenda and speaker line-up this year.
Here are just a few of the speakers you can expect to hear from in our morning sessions:
Keynote: Jon Riley, VP of Digital Manufacturing at the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS). Learn why digital manufacturing is so important to the future of manufacturing in America.
Customer: Alan Baumgartner, Technical Specialist at Ford Motor Company. See how Ford's transformation in globalization, flexibility, complexity management and cultural changes are driving new ways to create, view and manage manufacturing process design data.
Customer: Dave Anderson, Chief Dimensional Analyst for Spirit AeroSystems. Get an overview of the Spirit AeroSystems dimensional management process and the influences and benefits that it provides to product development and manufacturing processes.
You will not find a better opportunity to learn more about digital manufacturing than the Siemens PLM Software Digital Manufacturing Symposium. Register today!
Hotel information will be provided in your registration confirmation. A promotional link is included so that you will receive a special rate at the hotel. Hotel costs are the responsibility of the attendee.
Our event venue is located right downtown – near the Canal Walk and Monument Circle – so we are sure that you will enjoy your visit to Indianapolis while attending this event.

Jon Riley's Keynote
Here' a preview of what Jon Riley, a dynamic, highly knowledgable speaker, will have to say:
With unemployment still trending north of 8 percent, it is clear that our nation must do everything it can to address those barriers to job growth, such as tax policies and regulations, and develop affordable access to competitive enabling technologies for our number one source of jobs – manufacturers. Digital manufacturing is at the top of everyone’s list of enabling technologies.
For the past three years NCMS has been diligently working to lay the foundation for a secure and widely accessible environment for academic, public and private laboratories, consortia, manufacturers and suppliers to collaborate, share and enhance operations. The cornerstone for this environment will be a series of regional Predictive Innovation Centers (PIC) that will reach out to manufacturers in a plug and play format. The long-term impact of this effort will halve the cost of deploying digital manufacturing technologies in our nation’s manufacturers, broaden the base of innovation, and promote the application of these technologies across small, medium and large enterprises.
The applications for our manufactures are as broad as the horizon and as deep as our imagination. They include such tools as CAD, CAM, CAE, PLM, ERP and many others. They focus on energy, automotive, aerospace, defense, consumer products, electronics, health and any other sector you can name. Finally they apply to all aspects of the organization. These are technologies that are not limited to supporting the long historical applications within product develop and validation, but are expanding both out on the manufacturing floor and to the business offices. Leveraging data in real-time will revolutionize the assembly lines of yesterday into the smart facilities of tomorrow.
We are moving forward to make manufacturing tomorrow today!
