The 52nd CHEM Show Educational Conference, taking place with North America's largest process equipment and technology exposition, will concentrate on broad-scope to industry-specific topics important to the chemical process industries (CPI) professional, including Smooth, Safe, and Secure Processes. The Smooth, Safe, and Secure Processes sessions will focus largely on ways to effectively maximize batch process manufacturing productivity and profitability.

In this track, Deacom President Jay Deakins will discuss the use of an enterprise software system to simplify and securely manage all aspects of a batch process, including formulation and lab management, regulatory reporting, lot tracking, quality control/quality assurance, inventory control, sales order entry, purchasing, accounting and financials, retail point-of-sale (POS), and labor tracking.

Deakins' paper, entitled "Complexity Made Simple: Using a Single Software System for Your Chemical Manufacturing Business," will be presented at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 30, at the Javits Convention Center in New York, NY.
