Web Event: Digital Manufacturing

Learn about “Digital Manufacturing and Its Relation to Drilling Systems Automation” on 3 June with Clay Flannigan.  Digital Manufacturing (“Digital Thread”) encompasses the idea of high-levels of connectivity, data aggregation, and digital models to drive efficiency, safety, and growth in distributed systems. More concretely, there is a trend in manufacturing operations towards having a common data model that guides the creation of products from design engineering, through manufacturing all the way to maintenance, support, and end-of-life reclamation. This web event will provide an overview of current activities in other industries and their relation to drilling system automation.
