The Asset Performance track is focused on a range of state-of-the-art asset performance functionality, including measuring, empowering, improving, engineering and operating industrial assets for optimal performance results. The Human Performance track offers topics focused on the technologies and approaches in which industrial automation helps improve performance over a range of personnel functions (operations, maintenance, engineering, supervision and management) across industrial operations. The Safety and Environmental Performance track offers approaches and technologies that ensure safe, environmentally sound operations and demonstrates how holistic measurement and control of safety (the environment) and profitability can lead to new levels of operational and business performance.
