 Forum Co-Chair: 

Terry Tsao, President, SEMI Taiwan 

 Forum Outline: 


Smart Facility is an indispensable part of and prerequisite to Smart Manufacturing. The premise of setting smart facility is to supplement smart manufacturing. Smart Facility applies technologies of sensors, big data, internet of things (IoT), cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), cyber physical system (CPS) and other advanced software and hardware to upgrade "Industrial Automation" onto "Smart Automation." These technologies facilitate real-time monitoring the balance among the processes of supply chain, production and sale. Thus, these improve the quality, productivity and competitiveness of products as well as ensure the personnel and property safety, and eco-environmental protection.

The forum provides Chinese-English simultaneous interpreting that allows you enjoy the splendid and knowledgeable presentations. We highly welcome everyone concerning smart facility and smart automation.
