OptiSaw is a networking event focused on the optimization and automation of sawmills and attended by those driving the future of sawmill operations, including mill managers and owners, process engineers, continual improvement managers, optimization staff, and researchers. Rory Armes, CEO of Eight Solutions, is a featured speaker and will be discussing how the Cumul8 platform can help sawmill operators move from theory to reality for using big data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) throughout the process of converting logs to finished lumber. Through the real-time and predictive insights enabled by Cumul8, these operators can better understand and optimize the manufacturing process in order to take data-informed action for increasing output, reducing operational downtime, and better utilizing assets.
The Cumul8 platform will also be featured as part of the BID Group's ("BID") exhibit at the Canadian Bioeconomy Conference & Exhibition, which is the largest and longest running event focusing on the emerging bioenergy sector in Canada. BID is the leading integrated supplier to the industry and a valued Cumul8 partner. Cumul8 is embedded in all new equipment sold by BID, which enables data from these machines to be easily collected, visualized, and analyzed through the platform. The relationship between Cumul8 and BID represents the first turnkey and truly integrated IIoT solution available to the Forest Products industry.
Both OptiSaw and the Canadian Bioeconomy Conference & Exhibition provide the opportunity for Cumul8 to highlight the potential of AI for overall business and industry transformation.
