Cloud Computing & Smart Connected Digital Factories: Unleashing the Power of Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet

Mike Papazoglou
Tilburg University
Netherlands
 

Brief Bio
Prof. Michael (Mike) Papazoglou is a highly acclaimed academic with noteworthy experience in areas of education, research and leadership pertaining to computer science, information systems, service-engineering, cloud computing, and digital manufacturing. He holds the Chair of Computer Science and is the executive director of European Research Institute in Service Science (ERISS) at Tilburg University. He is noted as one of the original promulgators of ‘service-oriented computing’ and was the scientific director of the acclaimed EU Network of Excellence in Software Systems and Services (S-CUBE). He is renowned for establishing local ‘pockets of research excellence’ in service science and engineering in several European countries, China, Australia and the Middle East. Papazoglou is an author of the most highly cited papers in the area of service engineering and Web services worldwide with a record of publishing 23 (authored and edited) books, and over 200 prestigious peer-refereed papers along with approx. 17,500 citations (H-index factor 52). He is a distinguished/honorary professor with an exemplary teaching and R&D record at 11 universities around the globe. He has delivered over 35 keynote addresses since 2000 and chaired 12 prestigious international peer refereed conferences. He is the founder and editor-in-charge of the MIT Press book series on Information Systems as well as the founder and editor-in-charge of the Springer-Verlag book series on Service Science. His expertise is in the areas of Distributed Systems, Service Oriented Computing, Cloud Computing, Data Engineering and Federated Databases, IoT, Software Engineering, Model Driven Architectures, and Smart Applications, such as Smart Cities and Smart Manufacturing.


Abstract
Traditional manufacturing has been characterized by limited data exchange between systems, machines and processes throughout the product development life cycle. Recent initiatives such as the Industrial IoT, or Industry 4.0, as it has been dubbed, are fundamentally reshaping the industrial landscape by promoting connected smart manufacturing solutions that realize a “digital thread” which connects all aspects of manufacturing including all data and operations involved in the production of goods and services. These developments enable a “digital-twin” model of the connected ‘smart’ factory of the future where computer-driven systems create a virtual copy of the physical world and help make decentralised decisions with much higher degree of accuracy. The end result is an ecosystem of connected factory sites, plants, and self-regulating machines able to customize output, allocate resources optimally to offer a seamless transition between the physical and digital worlds of design, construction, assembly and production. It is connectivity that provides complete end-to-end data and service visibility throughout the entire product development lifecycle.
This talk will examine new concepts of manufacturing in the factory of the future and its enabling technologies, which include cloud, service-oriented computing, IoT, big data and analytics, and augmented reality. It will explain how these technologies have the ability to efficiently extract meaningful data and insights from manufacturing systems and processes, and transform traditional plants into connected smart collaborative factories. Here, collected data is harnessed to offer as-a-service products: products on the assembly line that have the ability to inform users and shop floor machinery how they are to be processed and how impending issues can be resolved. This new direction is highly-connected and knowledge-enabled factories, where devices, production equipment, production services and processes are connected - offering decision-making support on the basis of real-time production data - are continuously monitored, and optimized.



 

 

CLOUD, Trigger of a Socio-economic Revolution

Tobias Hoellwarth
EuroCloud Europe
Austria
 

Brief Bio
Dr. Höllwarth has worked as a corporate consultant specialized in IT projects for over 20 years. In addition to his work at the Vienna University of Economics and Business he also founded the companies Höllwarth Consulting, ICT Advisory Network and Sourcing International. Dr. Tobias Höllwarth was a founding member of EuroCloud Austria where he is today a member of the Board and is the director for the international StarAudit program and president of EuroCloud Europe. He acts as an expert for questions pertaining to certification at the Austrian Standards Institute and is leader of the Austrian delegation that participates in negotiations with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) where cloud computing is concerned.


Abstract
A presentation that will point out the similarities of the previous socio-economic revolutions that changed human live and explain the positive and the disastrous economic consequences that have become visible already. It will focus as well in the Europe society that is not yet prepared well for this massive change. Why is this and how one can participate actively in this game to help providers and the customer to add some learnings.
