Join Control Engineering, Oil & Gas Engineering and Plant Engineering for part one of the 2016 IIoT Webcast Series: Effective Change Management.

The analyst firm Gartner predicts that the “smart machine era” will be the most disruptive in the history of IT. Intelligent distributed systems will fundamentally transform our world. Early applications are running today in distributed medical imaging and patient care systems, huge industrial SCADA plant control, smart grid designs, advanced transportation systems, and autonomous cars and airplanes. The enabling technology is a common architecture that bridges sensor to cloud, interoperates between vendors, and spans industries. 

This talk will present a glimpse of the IIoT disruption by exploring leading applications. These use cases highlight disruptive changes common across industries. It will review the role of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), the rapidly-growing alliance of over 200 companies that form ground zero of the IIoT ecosystem. Finally, it will overview the IIC architecture, early standards, and testbed programs.  

Learning Objectives:

1. How Industrial Internet of Things applications are changing the way manufacturing plants operate.
2. How those operational changes will affect staffing, training and productivity as more manufacturers adopt an IIoT strategy in their plants.
3. What help can manufacturers get from the Industrial; Internet Consortium as they work to sort through the issues surrounding IIoT adoption.
4. What is the next step for U.S. manufacturing as it moves into the IIoT era.

Presenter: Stan Schneider, Industrial Internet Consortium
