WASHINGTON, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA) is pleased to announce that the Honorable Carl Levin, U.S. Senator from Michigan, will address attendees of the 2014 MEMA Legislative Summit as the breakfast keynote speaker on April 3, 2014 in Washington, D.C.
Levin, a long-time ally of the motor vehicle parts manufacturing industry, serves as Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee and Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations and is the Co-Chair of the Senate Auto Caucus.
In 2007, he received the Joseph M. Magliochetti Industry Champion Award at the MEMA Legislative Summit. His leadership during the economic crisis of 2008 and 2009 to preserve the domestic auto industry was essential to the U.S. economy and to the survival of the motor vehicle parts manufacturing industry.
In more recent years, Levin has been an active player in several issues impacting the industry, including clean energy legislation, domestic production in the auto industry and increased funding for suppliers. Levin announced last year that he would not seek re-election in the 2014 midterm elections.
"Throughout his tenure, Sen. Levin has been a vital advocate of the motor vehicle parts manufacturing industry in Michigan and across the U.S.," said Ann Wilson, MEMA senior vice president, government affairs. "We are delighted he will return to our Legislative Summit and look forward to hearing his unique perspective on his many decades of public service in his final months in office."
The MEMA Legislative Summit provides its members the opportunity to advocate on behalf of their company while reminding lawmakers that motor vehicle parts manufacturers are one of the most important engines of economic growth in the United States.
MEMA represents its members through four divisions: Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA); Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association (HDMA); Motor & Equipment Remanufacturers Association (MERA); and, Original Equipment Suppliers Association (OESA).

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
