Subject-matter experts from Rockwell Automation, in conjunction with PMMI, the Association for Packaging and Processing Technology, will take to the Innovation Stage for three consecutive days at Pack Expo 2016, offering free educational programming that addresses challenges and trends concerning track-and-trace, remote-monitoring, and smart machines.

Sunday, Nov. 6, featured the presentation “Deliver Valuable Genealogy/Track-and-Trace Information for Improved Production Control, Accountability, Safety and Economic Value.” Craig Winterland , business development manager for Global Solutions at Rockwell, posed how applications that deliver genealogy and track-and-trace information can help boost production control, accountability, safety, and economic value.
