CIMdata’s President, Peter Bilello, to make Presentation at Automation Alley’s TECH Takeover Event

Educational session will look at how to create smarter products with seamless collaboration between electrical and mechanical engineers and design teams.

ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 14 June 2017—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces that its President, Peter Bilello, will make a presentation at an upcoming Automation Alley TECH Takeover event. The theme for the event is, “Designing Smart Products for the Internet of Things.” The event, which is organized by Automation Alley and sponsored by Fisher Unitech, will take place at the Automation Alley campus in Troy, Michigan on July 19 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing how manufacturers design and develop products. From industrial and medical equipment to consumer goods, the products we use today are becoming increasingly connected and smart. While the IoT brings new revenue opportunities for manufacturers, there are also new product development challenges that can eat into profitability.

Attendees will learn about:

  • The business opportunity for manufacturers to compete with smart products in new and evolving markets and how this changes traditional product development processes.
  • Product development strategies that enable cross-functional teams to design smart products more efficiently with better quality and faster time-to-market.
  • The technology that companies use to reduce the complexity and the cost of developing mechanical, electrical, and electronic components that comprise smart products.

Peter Bilello has more than 28 years of experience in the development of business-enabling IT solutions for research, engineering, and manufacturing organizations worldwide. He has participated in PLM analysis, selection, implementation, and training; CAD/CAM/CAE/CIM implementation and management; synchronous and lean manufacturing consulting; software engineering; and general data management strategy development and support. He has authored numerous papers and research reports on PLM and related topics, and his articles, commentaries, and perspectives have appeared in publications throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia.

The session will also include representatives from Automation Alley and Fisher Unitech's, Electrical Technical Specialist, David Hofer.
