Von Kee Chong (CEO of InnoArk Pte. Ltd.)

Von Kee Chong

CEO of InnoArk Pte. Ltd.

Topic: Industry 4.0. The ideal world, but where do I start?

Started as an Engineer in a Japanese multinational back in 1996, I spent most of my time on the factory floor and working with operators. The learning experience is fantastic, not only did I learn about manufacturing process, I also realise the importance of information, in an aggregated way.
Back then, all production information was only available in the MIS room for managers. As a junior, it was hard for me to make a decision without asking my manager for information. That makes me believe information is as important as the machine itself.
Fast forward by 10 years to 2006, I started to work on system solutioning and consultancy for manufacturing from quality control to data extraction from machines for process monitoring (also for autonomous and preventive maintenance), I have gone through the struggle and I understand the common pain points in manufacturing processes.
Fast forward another 10 years, 2016, the idea of Industry 4.0 pretty much sums up what I consider as the “dream world”. It is an ideal world. It is a journey. Going there is a trend with lots of challenges which I will gladly be sharing during my session in Asia Manufacturing Summit.
