The Rockwell Automation Allen-Bradley Automation Fair will take place October 27-28 in Orlando, FL. Attendees can choose from five industry tracks: automotive, food and beverage, life sciences, packaging and material handling, and water/wastewater. The fair features technical sessions, tutorial sessions, hands-on labs, and more than 100 exhibitors. If that doesn't tempt the engineer's palate, attendees may take advantage of the special events, which include a brewing symposium and Walt Disney World backstage tours.

Each brings challenges that create innovation opportunities. If we briefly look at each one, we can see that one common need will be innovation in simplicity.
The supply chain will change significantly over the next 10 years as industry 4.0 technology enhances supply chain performance, according to the 2015 MHI Annual Industry Report, “Supply Chain Innovation — Making the impossible possible.”
