Peer–to–Peer Network Forums
Advancing Industry 4.0 Solutions
Our Peer-to-Peer Network is an invite-only forum for Indiana manufacturing and logistics companies to share knowledge and best practices about the advanced technology they have utilized or are considering.
Conexus Indiana assembles a vetted peer network (i.e., no sales or business development interests) and hosts a 60-90 minute session. One or more companies present on an Industry 4.0 technology topic, followed by a group discussion, where peers can share their experience and ask questions.

Digital Thread in Manufacturing
April 26, 2022
Conexus Indiana hosted a Peer-to-Peer Network Forum on Digital Thread in Manufacturing. The concept of Digital Thread is increasing in importance as complexity grows in product design, manufacturing, and life-cycle management. The U.S. Department of Defense is particularly interested to see digital thread concepts implemented across supply chain interactions; however, standards and frameworks are still in the process of developing. Event summary coming soon.
AR/VR/MR In Manufacturing
Conexus Indiana hosted a Peer-to-Peer Network Forum to explore emerging use cases in manufacturing and logistics for augmented-, mixed-, and virtual reality. Samtec and Rolls-Royce provided insights into their journeys with these technologies, sharing specific examples in electrical connector manufacturing and aerospace and defense.
Emerging Technology Due Diligence
Conexus Indiana and Heartland Ventures held a Peer-to-Peer Network Forum to explore and collect feedback on a collaborative approach to providing Indiana advanced manufacturing and logistics (AML) firms with enhanced knowledge, influence and access to emerging technologies in Industry 4.0.
Cummins and Praxair Surface Technologies led a discussion on March 30, 2021, during Conexus Indiana’s Peer-to-Peer Network forum on the topic of additive manufacturing. Peer participants representing six organizations contributed to the dialogue, which resulted in a number of key learnings and insights on the complexity, costs and human resources needed for success.
A group of attendees representing five organizations participated in a conversation hosted by manufacturer Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies. The conversation opened with Freudenberg’s recent purchase of a 3D printer for prototyping purposes and their interest in exploring 3D printing as a resource for tool making. The discussion covered a broad scope and scale of additive related topics.
