Industrial IoT/m2m Strategy Dialog Connects CTOs, Heads of Production, R&D, IT Managers, Scientists and Solution Providers to Discuss Ideas and Projects on the Road to Industrial IoT. n a smart factory all kind of people, machines and products communicate with each other. It is intelligentely connected with suppliers delivernig tagged components or carriers offering smart supply chains. The smart factory communicates with customers who bought its smart products with embedded sensors delivering data for product maintenance and improvement.

 

This communication requires a common IT language. Industrial IoT merges manufacturing, automation, IT and Internet in the smartest ways to make production more efficient and customers more satisfied at the same time. The smart factory is agile, green and ergonomic. The connection between customers and production as well as among one and another machine organises development and value chains of products in a brand new way.
A completely smart factory and holitstic industrial internet of things should be a reality 10 years from now. But already today many projects mark the starting point on the way from semi-automated and automated to the fully digitalised factories. It’s not the big bang but a journey with many small steps. The Industrial IoT/m2m Strategy Dialog wants to accompany this journey and connects CTOs, Heads of production, R&D, IT managers, scientists and solution providers to discuss ideas and upcoming projects on the road to Industrial IoT.

In some industries like passenger cars or kitchen furniture customers ask for indvidualised products which puts manufacturers under cost pressure. Small batch sizes shouldn’t be more expensive than mass production. In cases like these we can already witness the beginnings of Industrial IoT and advanced m2m communication with tagged workpieces communicating with conveying systems and machines which set up autonomously.

A smart factory is based on a complete vertical integration of business processes, manufaturing processes and manufacturing data. Already today manufatcuring execution systems (MES) link machines with ERP. Usual interfaces like OPC, UA, OPC DA or OLE DB connect manufacturing devices to the MES. This is a very good base to plan the next steps.

Remote predictive maintancene in the machinery industry is also a good example for Industrial IoT and m2m communication already in place. Senors deliver data to predict when parts need to be replaced. In a smart factory the spare part will also be produced and shipped autonomously.

Industrial IoT changes how companies collaborate. It changes their products and services. It changes their customer relationships. As always with big changes there will be successful and failing startups and not all established players might still be on top tomorrow. Especially when combined with a disruptive technologies like 3D Printing or Big Data it is true game changer. In any case these technologies will lead to an even tougher competition and future business models for manufacturing companies will need to be even more focused on the specific wishes of individual customers.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Intelligent connection of customer, development, product and supply chain
  • Digital business models and future competition
  • Industry 4.0 as a strategic mega opportunity for Europe
  • Investment and management strategies for the digital transformation
  • Relevance and integration of existing IT systems (like ERP, Automation Systems, MES , CRM, BI/DWH etc.)
  • Disruptive forces in the platform economy
  • Startups: Compete? Cooperate? Found yourself?
  • Paradigm shift from product to service
  • Better hunt than being hunted – how to quickly anticipate and adapt digital trends
  • Big Data, Smart Analytics and Machine Learning
  • Data Integration as a crucial challenge
  • The smart factory in a connected world
  • New manufacturing technologies and the decentralisation trend
  • Intelligent supply chains
  • Connected products (business models, advantages)
  • Customer centricity and batch size 1
  • Efficiency gains along the value chain enabled by IoT and Industry 4.0
  • New financing models in the connected IoT world (also outlook)
  • HR challenge: How to find the right talents?
  • New management approaches (Design Thinking, Agile, Scrum, Holacracy etc.)
  • Blockchain
  • Digital twins
  • Cyber-physical systems / autonomous systems / robotics
  • Intelligent assistants

    Business Matching

    How it works

    Cintelligence was founded by leading experts for networking and business development events.

    • Our invitation and admissions strategy creates qualified high level experts groups to assure meaningful networking.
    • As attendee you’ll receive an online questionnaire for your interests and competencies you’d like to share.
    • Your profile based on the questionnaire will be matched with the profiles of peers and solution partners.
    • The results of this matchmaking will be documented prior to the event in our online platform, i.e. you’ll see how other members can help you with your challenges or how you can help them.
    • Results are being sorted by relevance.
    • Based on these results you can ask for and prioritize meetings or be asked by others within the online platform.
    • Based on these wishes we’ll propose meeting schedules with individual agendas for you to make the most out of limited time.
    According to our experiences self service systems do not work properly for high level business networking since decision makers simply don’t have the time and focus outside their core business. This is why we proactively help our customers to find their meeting partners. Our system guarantees maximum networking results in the most efficient way for decision makers.
