Manufacturing Leadership Forum Focuses On 21st Century Analytics

I had the pleasure of attending the Manufacturing Leadership Forum in Houston, 10/23/2019.  The event was held at the Petroleum Club of Houston.  This special gathering was sponsored by Northwest Analytics and here is a short statement from them regarding the conference’s scope:


Industry 4.0 or Digital Transformation; everyone is trying to figure out how to put together programs and approaches that will scale initially, and are sustainable while being able to accommodate new technologies and approaches in the future.

It’s no wonder people are confused.

The Manufacturing Leadership Forum delivers real-world insight from those who have successfully implemented digital transformation programs using manufacturing analytics within their organizations.


Here is the speaker lineup:

  • Keynote: The Potential of Industry 4.0, Dr. Lloyd Colegrove, Dow
  • Building a Foundation for Sustainability, Operationalizing Analytics, Kevin Slattum, retired –  formerly Honeywell
  • Tying Manufacturing Analytics to Corporate Performance, Jared Witte, Kuraray
  • Keynote: Getting Real-Time Analytics Into Your Control Room, Jonathan Alexander, Albemarle


The meeting wrapped up with a round table on analytics.  Then. we closed with a nice mixer.


Northwest Analytics is a software company that specializes in data analytics and statistical process control.  They do a lot of business in Texas with the oil, gas, petroleum refining, and petrochemical markets.  For more information on the conference, please contact Peter Guilfoyle,
