Model-Based Engineering, Automation and IoT in Smart Manufacturing
What Are the New Requirements for IT Standards to Enable Smart Manufacturing?
The manufacturing industry is being challenged by digital transformation. The Internet of Things (IoT) and Model-Based Engineering (MBE) will play a crucial role in the design, fabrication and maintenance of complex products. MBE will be critical in understanding the underlying systems' complexity and connecting the required modeling methodologies and tools.
The OMG Information Day on “Model-Based Engineering, Automation and IoT in Smart Manufacturing" will focus on the requirements for standards that Industrie 4.0 and Smart Manufacturing strategies bring to the data infrastructure as manufacturing transforms from building complex products to complete systems.
The concepts of Industrie 4.0 and Smart Manufacturing will enable the development and production of complex systems (sometimes called cyber-physical systems). They will also raise new challenges for interoperability of the IT infrastructure needed to support this evolution. The added complexity will increasingly require the use of Model-Based Engineering (MBE) methods and technologies to design, build and manage the interconnected systems. The specification of IT standards and the development of MBE tools and methodologies is a kind of pre-competitive grease to support manufacturing collaboration and coopetition.
The role of Object Management Group® (OMG®), and specifically the Manufacturing Technology and Industrial Systems Domain Task Force (ManTIS DTF), is to foster the development of technologies and standards in support of interoperability of manufacturing systems. ManTIS closely cooperates in this regard with the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), GfSE (the German chapter of INCOSE), and the Systems Engineering Domain Special Interest Group (SE DSIG) of the OMG.
The objective of this full-day event is to discuss joint interests between formerly disconnected organizations in this area and to initiate activities to solve our common problems. Attendees will learn about developments and strategies in support of complex system manufacturing and will help formulate requirements in conjunction with key industrial players, organizations and programs such as the Industrial Internet Consortium® (IIC™), GfSE, and the Plattform Industrie 4.0 (PI40). In a concluding panel we will discuss the need for action and joint activities.
Throughout this day-long event you will find ample opportunities to meet and network with speakers, panelists, task force chairs and your fellow attendees during refreshment breaks, luncheon and an evening cocktail reception at the hotel, all included in the registration fee.
