Organizations for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Industrie 4.0, and smart manufacturing architectures have been working on test beds to help prove benefits. What can you learn? What attributes should you adapt or ignore, and why? What does recent research explain about understanding IIoT-related topics? An RCEP Professional Development Hour (PDH) is available.  

Learning objectives:

  • Recognize project scope and goals of test beds at Smart Manufacturing Leadership Consortium (SMLC)
  • Identify parts of each platform the case study demonstrates
  • Quantify benefits produced, or expected, from the case study, based on integrated technologies used
  • Adapt best practices based on lessons learned to a future implementation
  • Review other industry test beds and research and trends from recently released IIoT and Industrie 4.0 research from Control Engineering and Plant Engineering

Speaker: Thomas F. Edgar, Ph.D., director, The University of Texas at Austin Energy Institute, George T. and Gladys H. Abell Chair in Engineering and Jack S. Josey Professorship in Energy Studies, and co-founder of the Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition (SMLC), which develops software tools for saving energy in industrial plants. Dr. Edgar is professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin and Director of the UT Energy Institute.
