In this session you will learn about:
- The case for a 200Bn+ opportunity, how the supply chain software market is booming
- Overarching market trends in the digital supply chain market
- Success stories of digitization in manufacturing & supply chain industries
A solid framework for the Industrial Internet of Things is at the heart of a long-term, robust environment for IoT project development in industrial settings. The process implies much more than having multiple industrial IoT devices connected to the internet. A robust infrastructure is a decisive constituent of that process.
Some of the topics covered during this session:
• Connecting Cloud applications to field devices
• Edge devices
This session explores common connectivity patterns for industrial solutions.
Industrial organizations are generating more data than ever before and looking to institute AI and Analytic applications to transform their organizations and give them a competitive advantage, to control costs and optimize operations. Because DataOps is a new concept to industrial, there is a chasm in understanding between IT and OT teams that must be bridged to fully realize sustainable digital transformation for an industrial business.
As an Operations Leader, you understand the value of automation and operations management systems, but may struggle in the IT concepts and terminology that are more well known in commercial businesses such as banking, ad-tech, and insurance. You do, however, appreciate how a factory works and how well-designed production processes execute. Industrial DataOps is a lot like a factory production line in the way it automates, upgrades, improves, and assembles another valuable raw material which is, of course, data. In this session, we will explain Industrial DataOps in the context of the way a manufacturing plant is optimized. This will help to bridge the divide between the plant manager and the central IT manager, allowing the understanding these techniques of professional data management to drive sustainable digital transformation.
Topics to be covered:
• How predictive analytics is used to predict failures in manufacturing
• The benefits of predictive maintenance over traditional maintenance
• How to collect and analyze IIoT data in manufacturing
Most industrial control systems lack security by design. OT environments are especially difficult to defend against cyberattacks due to the vulnerability and fragility of systems in place, and the common use of implicit trust models. Mix in the increased connectivity between industrial and corporate networks and the remote access requirements for employees and third-party suppliers, and you have changed risk equation. Listen in as our panel addresses the cybersecurity essentials for the people, process and technology behind the movement toward Industry 5.0.
With a new year around the corner, we reflect on where data aggregation, normalization and analysis have been and where we think they’re headed based on what we’re seeing and hearing working with manufacturers around the world. We’ll examine trends in and comfort with edge and cloud solutions as IT increasingly works hand in hand to support OT to make Industry 4.0 gains both easier and possible. Existing systems, existing machines, how to best leverage in-house resources, success stories and the evolution of AI and ML with data modeling. We’ll touch on it all as part of this lively roundtable discussion. Join us with your questions, thoughts and predictions.
• Why software supply chain security is everyone’s problem
• Overcoming software trustworthiness challenges
• Regulations that are forcing organizations to address software supply chain security
• How to address ICS, IIoT, and IoT needs
Enhanced data collection, more robust resource management, Data-driven customer insights, a better customer experience, increased profits, increased agility, and improved productivity - these are just a few opportunities that digital transformation has to offer for Manufacturing & Supply Chain. Find out how industrial companies leverage digital transformation to their benefit and where you could start.
According to a BCG report, the manufacturing industry's most important AI use cases focus on Intelligent, self-optimizing machines that automate production processes. AI helps manufacturers to forecast efficiency losses for better planning or detect quality defects to facilitate predictive maintenance & much more. Join this panel to hear directly from end-users about how AI works for their manufacturing companies.
The smart factory of tomorrow is about building upon the advancements of Industrial IoT by automating data collection from machines, devices, and applications, then transforming that data into insights. The smart factory of tomorrow will continuously collect data through connected machines, devices, and systems rooted in interconnectivity, automation, artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, and real-time data. These will enable many different things, depending on each manufacturer's goals. Join this panel to find out where to start and what's important to consider when starting a digital transformation process in your factory.
Manufacturers are compelled to be more productive and profitable as industrial sites and software grow increasingly complex. As a result, operators must respond to operational demands to reduce costs while increasing productivity. Also, managing the equipment to run more efficiently and incorporating best practices and monitoring requirements are not less essential. In short, everyone is being asked to do more with fewer resources. Join this panel to find out how to get more from your software investment.
Critical national infrastructures are under pressure from government, regulators and themselves to enhance their defences, improve cyber monitoring and to re-work the gargantuan quantities of legacy systems. This is not an easy task with Industrial IT. Join this session to find out how BCS is building Cybersecurity for the Nation.
