Conference On ‘Digital Factory’

M.P. Chandrasekharan, Dean, Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Ettimadai, speaking at an international conference on ‘Digital Factory’ at the Coimbatore Institute of Technology in Coimbatore on Monday. The role and future of the concept of digital factory in various engineering fields is full of potential and possibilities when it is used with quality software. This is the observation made by all the experts who spoke at the international conference on “Digital Factory” held at the Coimbatore Institute of Technology (CIT) here on Monday.

The four-day conference was organised jointly with Business Innovation Research Centre (BIRC), Charlton College of Business, University of Massachusetts, the U.S., in collaboration with five international scientific journals. S.R.K. Prasad, Director of CIT, said the concept of digital factory meant a workplace being fully computerised. “It means factories or industries can be operated on remote. A factory in India can be operated from the U.S. through the Internet or Web, without people.”

“If India has to make a mark in the Information Technology sector, it has to shift its focus towards product development. This is possible only with a digital factory,” Mr. Prasad said.M.P. Chandrasekharan, Dean, Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Ettimadai, too endorsed the opinion of Mr. Prasad and said: “Flexibility, accessibility and opportunity for designing a product is possible only with the concept of a digital factory. It becomes very simple when new quality softwares are made available.”

Delegates from across the world are participating. More than 350 papers are expected to be presented. The five international scientific journals that are collaborating for the conference are tracking the conference. “Best papers presented in this conference will find a place in the journals,” Mr. Prasad said.
