We live in volatile times and manufacturing challenges have never been greater. Will you be ready to run when the next expansion happens? How do you determine the best outcomes to focus on and the associated ROI? Is there a plan for business process alignment, change management bridging gaps in IT & OT? Are your processes and operations scalable, immune to market upsets and future proof?

The industrial world has a long history of modernizing their process controls in order to keep production running efficiently and safely while minimizing downtime. Yet many are locked in established IIoT data historian solutions that are expensive, outdated, don’t interoperate with other systems, and don’t run on a broad range of device and sensor hardware…

Simulation has been used in many years in the process industry, but now the industry is taking this to a higher level. From being used for smaller parts of the plant and operator training, now more and more of the plant can be simulated as a digital twin following the plant life cycle for improved safety and productivity. When the simulator becomes the control system master, the plant can reduce risk for unplanned shutdowns and blackouts. According to Gartner, 75% of organisations implementing IoT technology already use digital twins as part of their system, or are planning to do so within a year…

Cities are under pressure. More than two-thirds of the world’s population will live in urban areas by 2050. This is creating a wide range of challenges, such as the poor quality of air in Los Angeles, inefficient water systems in Buenos Aires, and gridlock on roads from London to Mumbai. Get insights on how to address these issues by intelligently utilizing data. All cities are creating data; they just aren’t yet gathering, analyzing, and using the information effectively. In the context of the World Expo project, you will learn how using IoT technologies to turn data into smart data can make cities better for society and the environment…

The industrial world has a long history of modernizing their process controls in order to keep production running efficiently and safely while minimizing downtime. Yet many are locked in established data historian solutions that are costly and lack the methods needed to provide innovation and interoperability. In contrast, open source software — which is built on the foundation of community — inherently provides diverse design perspectives not available from a single software vendor…

Industrial Control Systems have migrated from stand-alone isolated systems to interconnected systems. In a very standard environment, thousands of devices exist, operated by a more heterogeneous environment in more places than ever before. These interconnected systems leverage existing communication platforms and protocols to increase productivity, reduce operational costs, and further improve an organization’s support model….
