PEORIA, Ill. -- CEOs and leaders of small and medium-sized manufacturing companies are getting a lesson in innovation.

Caterpillar Inc. is sponsoring a Smart Manufacturing Summit at the Marriott Pere Marquette.

CEO Doug Oberhelman says there are many examples of how innovation is changing industries.

One example is how Amazon is now competing with supermarkets to deliver groceries.

The Caterpillar Smart Manufacturing summit ends Wednesday.
