Connected Industry

“As many other areas of our everyday lives, the Internet of Things is also becoming prevalent in industry, where it connects real and virtual worlds of production. The fusion of these two worlds via the Internet enables manufacturers to connect all machines, products and systems involved in the production process.” – Bosch Software Innovations GmbH

The Industrial Internet of Things or Industry 4.0 heralds an era of unlimited potential to change the industrial landscape. Will this become the age of ultimate industrial automation? What efficiencies and new opportunities can be realised as a result? How can the complexities be understood and challenges overcome? In these sessions we explore how the IoT is impacting existing industry value chains, business models and workforces, and what actions business leaders must take to ensure long-term success and real return on investment.

A few years ago, Internet pioneer and investor Marc Andreessen famously stated that “software is eating the world.” Citing the rise of cloud computing and the disruptive effect of software on a diverse range of industries, he outlined how Amazon, Google, Facebook and others had leveraged software and the massively connected Internet to create new and sustainable value, displacing many established companies in the process.

Now as we see the Internet of Things begin to scale up, a new wave of software is emerging. While much of the focus in IoT to date has been on sensors (the hardware of Things) and the cloud, there is also a tremendous amount of software running on Things – smart sensors, gateways, edge devices, etc. These are not fixed function devices – they’re programmable computers! Achieving the truly disruptive gains in Industry promised by massively connected Things will require embedded software platforms dealing in “Thing Services” to leverage these distributed computer networks. We are just starting to see the emergence of this category of device-oriented IoT platform. This talk will explore the topic in more detail through examples of how embedded platforms are being used today across Industry, and analysis of the common real-world use cases in areas such as agriculture that must still be addressed to set the table for software to eat the IoT.

Aerospace Manufacturing Data Management Systems and Controls

This presentation covers a systems approach to manufacturing controls that will rely on real-time data from sensors and devices to drive factory level decisions. Details include data acquisition and analytic methods to evaluate material movements, process and product flows; parts management, tools control, equipment performance, facilities infrastructure, and manpower utilization. Discussions will include typical machine data collection capabilities and analysis tools to calculate overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and condition based maintenance (CBM). Also, sensors data for situational awareness such as automated identification technologies will be explored. The audience will be introduced to industry standards as well solution base approaches that will link low level data to the legacy systems to simplify decisions and reduce/eliminate non-value added tasks. Emphasis will also be placed on advanced portal systems and data visibility from large data sets and a variety of data sources. The audience will be introduced to examples related to aerospace manufacturing by addressing specific problems in fabrication and assembly build cycles. There will also be exposure to roadmaps and trends in IoT within aerospace manufacturing including value propositions and opportunities for further research.
