Press release from the issuing company

Atlanta, GA - PaperCon, April 28-May 1, 2013 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA will include an IT track explaining the latest tools for high speed network and data integration.  Organized by PIMA and chaired by Paul Stecher, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, RockTenn, the session’s speakers include several mill IT experts and systems providers. The annual PaperCon conference features the industry’s largest technical program covering the latest in pulp and paper manufacturing technology. 

“Our PIMA Management Division has brought important IT topics back to PaperCon,” said Larry N. Montague, president and CEO of TAPPI. “The two sessions will help mills better merge their process control and business systems to work smarter and improve efficiency”  

The first session, “Traditional DCS and IT Converge: How to Position Yourself to Take Full Advantage of the Opportunities,” is a panel discussion geared towards DCS control engineers, superintendents and IT support.  The panel will focus on high speed network and traffic isolation approaches, security considerations, and the latest data integration techniques.   

A second session entitled “Using Industry Proven Software Tools to Drive Mill Efficiencies” will include three presentations: "Integrating Forecasting to Costing in Dollars and Sense” presented by David Pawelke, MAJIQ; "Thoughts on Paper: Connecting the Supply Chain," Jim Black, OSI Soft; and "Vertically Integrated Real-time Costing for Pulp and Paper Mills”, Fredric Karlsson, Enterprise Performance Solutions. Key topics include how real-time costing for supporting processes can be used to calculate actual costs on primary production lines including cooking, bleaching and paper making. In addition, the discussions will provide insight into how companies can develop the capacity to collect and analyze data tied to asset performance.

Designed by industry professionals, PaperCon brings together CEOs, mill managers, superintendents, scientists, process engineers and suppliers for the largest pulp and paper technical program in the world. No other event provides such a comprehensive program, networking opportunities and trade fair among such a distinguished group of industry leaders.
