    • January 26, 2016
      • 8:00 am - 8:55 amRegistration, Coffee and Networking
      • 9:15 am - 9:30 amMaria Archer - EricssonPresentation Title: TBA Presentation Synopsis: TBA
      • 9:30 am - 9:45 amCormac Garvey- Hal- SoftwarePresentation title: Supply Chain prototyping Presentation Synopsis: The Supply Chain ecosystem is incredibly complex, usually requiring significant integration of each suppliers’ standards and processes to the manufacturer’s. Cormac will introduce the concept of supply chain prototyping, where easy-to-use, standards-based technology is used to wireframe out the entire supply chain ecosystem prior to integration, thus significantly reducing cost, time and risk on the project. This wireframe can then be used as a model for future integration projects

      • 10:50 am - 11:05 amDr. Garret O’Donnell- Assistant Professor (Mechanical & Manuf. Eng), Trinity College DublinPresentation Title: “Industrie 4.0 – Process analytics for manufacturing”. Presentation Synopsis: One of the most significant initiatives in the last 2 years has been the concept of the 4th industrial revolution promoted by the National Academy for Science and Engineering in Germany- ACATECH, known as Industrie 4.0. The so called “Industrial Internet of Things and Services” and its potential for the manufacturing environment is disruptive and is viewed as a 4th industrial revolution. It is anticipated that there will be an interconnection between machines, warehousing systems and production facilities at a global scale in the shape of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). These Cyber-Physical Systems will comprise smart machines, storage systems and production facilities capable of autonomously exchanging information, triggering actions and controlling each other independently. The well established field of process monitoring has arguably been the closest field in production technology to the Cyber-Physical Systems principles including intelligence-integration and interconnection. A key differentiator in Industrie 4.0 between an IT perspective and an engineering scientist perspective is the link to the underlying physics of the manufacturing process that is quantifiable with this new data. The sensor data recorded on millisecond intervals is of critical important in understanding the process material and machine interaction. The manufacturing research group led by Dr. O’Donnell has been working in this field for the last 10 years and will demonstrate some of the impact of the research undertake in collaboration with Irish MNC and SMEs.

      • 11:20 am - 11:35 amDr. Hassan Kaghazchi- Chairman, ProfibusPresentation title: “PROFINET and Industrie 4.0” Presentation Synopsis: Industrial communications systems play a major role in today’s manufacturing systems. The ability to provide connectivity, handle large amount of data, uptime, open standards, safety, and security are the major deciding factors. This presentation shows how PROFINET fits into Industrial Internet of Things (Industrie 4.0).
      • 11:35 am - 11:50 amMaurice Buckley- CEO, NSAIPresentation Title: Industry 4.0 and the role of standardization. Presentation Synopsis: TBA
      • 11:50 am - 12:05 pmJaap Piersma - Business Advisory Consultant, SASPresentation title: The impact of low forecast accuracy on the bottom line. Presentation synopsis: The majority of manufacturing organisations nowadays are struggling to achieve forecast accuracies of more than 80%. Using historical data and statistical techniques alone does not offer the significant improvements required in today’s volatile economy. The impact of low forecast accuracies on the business performance is high but with the right tools , the right approach and experienced resources you can achieve very significant result and benefits for your business. If you have any interest in predicting the future demands with greater accuracy and showing a significant improvement to your bottom line, this presentation is relevant for you.
      • 12:05 pm - 12:20 pmDave Clarke- Chief Data Scientist, Asystec LimitedPresentation Title: ‘Leveraging IOT data for real business value – a practical approach for industry 4.0.’ Presentation Synopsis: There are incredible business opportunities possible by harnessing the massive data sets generated in the machine to machine and person to machine hyper connected IoT world. The apparent dampened speed of adoption of IoT technologies could well be due to 1. The difficulty of finding the right collaboration in OT and IT in manufacturing organisations, 2. The difficulty of picking the analytical use case that will show the right Return on Investment for a large technology investment and 3, The difficulty in finding the right collaborative partners that will work together across OT and IT to provide a programmatic approach to IoT advancement in both OT and IT. This presentation will outline the methodology that Asystec has developed to provide customers with a low-cost, low-risk, business led development methodology for IoT initiatives, together with some current projects being worked on and some lessons learned on the success characteristics on these types of projects.
      • 12:20 pm - 1:20 pmLunch and Networking
      • 1:20 pm - 1:35 pm David Goodstein – Connected Living Project Director, GSMAPresentation title: Embedded SIM: Enabling the Internet of Things Presentation synopsis: The GSMA’s Embedded SIM Specification provides a standard mechanism for the remote provisioning and management of machine to machine connections, allowing over-the-air provisioning and change of operator subscriptions. This talk will describe new form factor mobile SIMs which are robust, remotely manageable which are an essential enabler for applications and services in the connected world.

      • 1:50 pm - 2:05 pmDr. Ramesh Raghavendra - SEAM Centre Director, Waterford Institute of TechnologyPresentation title: Metal 3D Printing: How SEAM can assist Manufacturing Industries in Ireland? Presentation synopsis: An industry dedicated materials research and development facility, SEAM (South Eastern Applied Materials) Research Centre located at Waterford Institute of Technology, has been a success story in expanding opportunities in the Medical device, Precision Engineering, Pharma and Energy Sectors in Ireland. SEAM, currently seed funded under Enterprise Ireland’s Technology Gateway programme, has established itself as the first stop for companies seeking assistance on materials related issues that cannot be solved by utilising their on-site resources. SEAM’s metallic, polymer and ceramic experience are proving invaluable to its clients due to offerings of its niche technologies (X-ray CT scan, Metal 3D printing & Finite Element Modelling) and materials research capabilities to resolve their day to day process/product and quality related issues. SEAM has an impeccable track record of delivering for industry, having executed over 900 direct funded industry projects spanning across over 110 companies since its launch in 2009. This talk predominantly focuses on SEAM’s 3D Metal Additive Manufacturing capability and how it can assist industries in design, prototype and validation of component parts.
