Vice President

Global
Strategic
Technology Marketing Center
Director of Data
Services
and Fundamental
Problem Solving,
Dow Chemical Company.
Global
Process
Safety
Consultant,
Rockwell Automation
Maurice Wilkins is the vice
president of Yokogawa’s
Strategic Marketing Center,
based in Dallas, Texas. His
keynote presentation will
examine recent workforce
trends, the differences
between the Boomer and
Millennial generations and
their expectations; and how
standards and technology
can help Millenials gain the
experience needed to close the
so-called “skills gap.”
Dr. Wilkins possesses more
than 37 years of experience in
human factors, batch solutions,
procedural operations, HMI
design, advanced process
control and benchmarking
analysis in the chemicals and
refining industries. He is a
Chartered Engineer in the UK, a
Fellow of the UK IChemE, and
represents them in the US as a
Senior Ambassador. He is also
an ISA Fellow and a Fellow of
the Institute of Measurement
and Control. Dr. Wilkins was
inducted into the Process
Automation Hall of Fame
in 2011.
Lloyd Colegrove is the director of
Data Services and Fundamental
Problem Solving at the Analytical
Technology Center within
The Dow Chemical Company.
His keynote presentation will
highlight how Dow Chemical is
leveraging Big Data to transform
chemical manufacturing data to
information, then knowledge,
then wisdom.
Over the past 15 years, Dr.
Colegrove has been driving
the implementation of novel
applications of multi-variate
analysis into real-time batch and
continuous process data analysis.
His desire for novel approaches
to data interpretation and
integration in manufacturing
assets has coalesced into an
effort within Dow manufacturing
to re-think how data is viewed
and used.
Recently, he has focused
his energy and his teams on
developing and piloting an
enterprise data analysis and
collaboration space that would
tie multiple plants together with
Dow’s Technology Center and
R&D resources to troubleshoot
in real time and preemptively
detect and alert plant trouble well
before a crisis emerges.
Dr. Colegrove’s background
is in chemical physics. He spent
seven years in polymer research
at Dow before moving into
the company’s manufacturing
area. He served in analytical
improvement and quality leader
roles for five Dow businesses
before moving into the then newly
formed Analytical Technology
Center in 2009.
Paul Gruhn is a Global Process
Safety Consultant at Rockwell
Automation, a position he has
held since June 2005.
Gruhn is a highly acclaimed and
awarded safety expert in the
automation and control field. He
is an ISA Fellow, a member of
the ISA84 standard committee
(on safety instrumented
systems), a member of the
ISA101 standard committee (on
human machine interfaces), and
a developer and author of ISA
courses on safety systems.
An accomplished author, he
has written two ISA textbooks
(Safety Instrumented Systems:
Design, Analysis & Justification
and Sell More through Effective
Technical Presentations), other
book chapters and more than
two dozen published articles.
Gruhn developed the first
commercial safety system
modeling company. He is a
Licensed Professional Engineer
(PE) in Texas, a member of
Control System Engineer (CSE)
exam team and an ISA84
expert. He received a bachelor
of science degree in mechanical
engineering from Illinois Institute
of Technology.

About MESA
Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association (MESA) International
is a worldwide not-for-profit community of manufacturing
companies, information technology hardware and software suppliers,
system integrators, consulting service providers, analysts, editors,
academics and students. The combined purpose is to improve
business results and production operations through optimized
application and implementation of information technology and best
management practices.
MESA member companies and individuals and our knowledgebase
span the full range of manufacturing environments from discrete
to batch to mixed model to process. The association’s efforts are
focused on helping the manufacturing community to use information
technology to provide real-time visibility into the production process.
Further, MESA is committed to connecting that visibility to create
business results, achieving such real value chain objectives such as
lean manufacturing, collaborative supply chain management, quality
and regulatory compliance, asset performance management, and
product lifecycle management.
MESA provides a variety of programs and events that work together to help manufacturers:
• Better understand what is possible in terms of information technology to improve profitability, business value, agility, and customer satisfaction
• Engage “best practices” to see what other manufacturers have done to achieve measurable success
• Approach investment decisions in technology with more confidence
• Learn to improve the deployment of new technology
MESA’s Global Education Program and events present to manufacturing businesses those best practices used to solve critical problems
within their corporation and those that extend to their suppliers,
customers, and partners. As members, both manufacturers and information system providers benefit from working together on solving
critical business issues and furthering the state of the industry in the
use of integrated information systems.

•
concerned about the costs and time required for calibration
apprehensive about new calibration system implementation
afraid of the impact of poor calibration processes on safety
fearful of compliance & regulatory issues due to poor documentation
For 40 years, Beamex’s mission, as a leading technology company that provides integrated
calibration solutions including hardware, software and professional services to process plants
worldwide, is to help solve these challenges.
Visit our experts, Roy Tomalino and Eric Webb at booth #25, for a brief conversation with to
determine if we can address your specific concerns.
Attend the “How to update your plant’s calibration program” presentation hosted by calibration
engineer, Roy Tomalino, on Wednesday, October 11th at 1:30 PM to learn the proper steps for
new calibration system implementation from an expert.
