ARC’s Process Management Academy (PMA) is the fifth in a series of highly educational events specifically designed for professionals from the European process industries. PMA participants will learn how to manage and optimize production plants using collaborative manufacturing concepts and technologies. More than 300 decision makers are expected to attend the forum on March 2-4, 2009 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
