FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif.--iBASEt, the creators of Solumina, a fully integrated software suite for manufacturing process planning, execution and enterprise quality management, announced today their continued contribution to the manufacturing industry’s Smart Manufacturing initiative.
Working in conjunction with the Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association (MESA) International, iBASEt’s VP of Product Strategy and Alliances, Conrad Leiva, has been instrumental in organizing and leading the development of thought leadership for one of the most influential initiatives affecting change throughout manufacturing. Awarded the “Outstanding Contribution to MESA” award, by MESA International demonstrates the impact Conrad has generated with his work as the chair of the Smart Manufacturing Working Group of MESA.
“Conrad has a unique ability to guide people through complex discussions. Given the size and diversity of the groups he leads within MESA – and the scope of their subject matter – it’s no small feat to set and meet goals. Yet, Conrad does both. He’s a great asset to our community,” said MESA International President Michael Yost. “MESA thanks iBASEt for their foresight in investing time and resources to MESA and the Smart Manufacturing working group.”
iBASEt is investing heavily on the Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 vision, not just within its own R&D department, but also through organizations like MESA International, the UK’s Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), the Smart Manufacturing Leadership Commission (SMLC), and Open Applications Group Integration (OAGi) as well as partnerships with leading PLM and Automation vendors—organizations that are moving the needle forward to make Smart Manufacturing a reality. “Smart Manufacturing’s innovation and connectivity enables a revolution in manufacturing business strategy and we are determined to help traditional factories shift from cost centers into profitable innovation centers,” said iBASEt President Vic Sial.
Upon receiving the award Conrad had the following to say, “I'm fortunate to be working at MESA with leaders from visionary companies with a common goal to realize the Smart Manufacturing vision and move the entire industry to new levels of connectivity, collaboration and orchestration. The mix of contributions from manufacturers and vendors like iBASEt yields the best practical guidance on this evolutionary journey to revolutionary results.”
