SJVMA Technology Roundtable – Automation in Manufacturing

November 2, 2023 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Please join us for the SJVMA Technology Roundtable! This is an ongoing series in which we discuss the challenges and opportunities facing Central Valley’s technology executives.


The word ‘automation’ can and does have so many definitions. Regardless of what your definition is or how they pertain to you, it’s highly likely you believe automation is an opportunity for you. In this session, we’ll have G Brooks-Zak, Co-founder of Outlier Automation, share their thoughts and observations. G will provide some real-life examples and share with us:

  • Terminology, so while you may know what a PLC is, what about SCADA? How about HMI or MES?
  • What might be opportunities for you and your enterprise? Is IIoT on the table and should it be?
  • Innovations to come, what’s on the horizon and what concepts should you know about?

Following G’s overview, we’ll open up the floor and talk about automation opportunities and challenges facing each of us.
