Education & Industry Panel: Preparing the Workforce of the Future

Often, the difference between what you need to know to walk across that stage and get your diploma, degree, certificate, or credential is vastly different from what you need to know to be successful in your first entry-level position. Curriculum and program development happen in vastly different ways, from four-year colleges and universities to technical colleges, to community/junior colleges. How we, as an industry, communicate to address what we are seeing in the field is imperative to providing the engineer of tomorrow with the appropriate skill sets to encourage success. That conversation starts with industry and academia coming together to discuss the topics important to the ever-changing landscape of industrial technology. Join David Grussenmeyer, University Engagement Manager at Inductive Automation, for a panel discussion composed of four faculty members from different educational institutions and learn how their efforts to collaborate with Industry are changing the educational landscape for our workforce of tomorrow.

Changes Towards The Digital Transformation - Turn and Face The Strange

While data acquisition systems at the process level have become increasingly universal, the true Digital Transformation vision – the integration of all data across an organization to higher levels within a company - still faces a number of hurdles around bandwidth, multiple data-entry points, and conflicting software platforms. Here, we present how SCADA-driven data via Ignition with Starlink Satellite-Based Broadband can be combined with manual-entry mobile Perspective applications to provide a rich data source at the field and operations level. Once in the cloud, that data, in turn, can then be combined through API-based integrations with third-party platforms to provide higher-level insights to Research, Business Development, Engineering, Financial, and Executive divisions. Thus, from Operator to CEO, Ignition provides a true data integration platform up and down an organization.

Situated in the Klein Karoo region of the Western Cape, Oudtshoorn is a water-scarce region. Visibility, measurement, and effective control of irrigation systems and borehole levels are crucial, both to reduce waste of available water resources and minimize variability in flow regimes and recharge. Using small and cost-effective Edge devices and standard protocols, MQTT and Ignition by Inductive Automation® solved several challenges. There are lower operating costs, enterprise-wide and real-time visibility, and reduced response times, from five minutes to mere seconds.

Embracing the Cloud: How 4IR Solutions' Ignition-Powered Platform Accelerates Life Sciences and Manufacturing

Industrial organizations, particularly in regulated industries like Life Sciences, have historically been hesitant to store GxP data in the cloud. But with COVID-19 pushing many organizations into accelerating their digital transformation roadmaps, the cloud has become a differentiating, and in some cases essential, technology that allows manufacturers to stay competitive through cost savings while enabling new ways to drive value. With deep experience in the Life Sciences industry, 4IR Solutions has developed a new cloud-hosted platform powered by Ignition, designed to meet the unique regulatory and compliance challenges faced by Life Science manufacturers, including Data Integrity and 21 CFR Part 11. This session will provide an inside look at how this platform makes Ignition a Smarter, Faster, Stronger tool by putting security first while enhancing Ignition's core capabilities through integration with cloud-native technologies. Executives from 4IR Solutions will provide an overview and demonstration of the platform and discuss how system integrators and manufacturers alike can leverage their existing Ignition skills to deliver secure, compliant, and cloud-enhanced solutions on top of 4IR's managed platform.

Keeping the Cure, Secure:COVID-19 Vaccine Batch Monitoring

Johnson & Johnson's pharmaceutical arm, Janssen, embarked on a global effort to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and worked with a contract manufacturer to supply one billion doses of vaccine. Large-scale manufacturing of Janssen's vaccine would occur at the contract manufacturing site, specializing in rapidly manufacturing vaccines and other treatments in large quantities during public health emergencies. Janssen required access to near-real-time data to monitor key production and quality metrics and to assure the success of each batch. The contract manufacturer's Operation Technology infrastructure of control systems and data collection is isolated from internal and outside networks — particularly networks with internet access. The contract manufacturer tasked Automation Control Concepts (ACC) with creating a secure data pipeline providing this information to Janssen, which is an evolution in the collaboration between contract manufacturers and vaccine developers, as historical data is usually exchanged via Excel or text files after the batch is completed. In this session, learn how ACC used Ignition to provide the real-time data required to react to deviations immediately and save batches that would otherwise be lost.

How to Develop a Low-Cost, Open Source Machine Learning Solution Using Ignition

The benefits of applying machine learning in complex industrial systems can be immense, and Enuda has found an open-source approach using Ignition that can give the benefits of ML at a low cost. In this session, you'll learn how they did it by exploring their considerations, testing (and failures), as well as why they decided on using a combination of Docker, Flask framework, and Ignition to create their solution. The session will include an example using the chosen environment for a practical case, and advice on how to get started with machine learning and Ignition.

Practical Smart Water Solutions Capitalizing on the Digital Wave

The demand for reliable, secure, and scalable automation technology is growing exponentially in the water/wastewater industry. Municipalities struggle with “data silos” that limit the flow and availability of information to the various stakeholders and systems, limiting insights that can be gleaned from the operation. At Brock, we are using Ignition to break open these silos and aggregate disparate data sources into a connected central point, providing a complete view from tap to treatment of the water operation.

Blockchain-Based Operator Logs and Ignition Auditing

Most automated processes require tracking of system status and performance, including operator responses to process upsets. Typically, this is accomplished using a physical notebook, as it is relatively tamper-proof. Using Ignition’s built-in Audit Log, this process can be done digitally, but it’s possible to alter and tamper with after data has been entered. In order to prevent tampering of the digital operator log, Corso Systems has built a tool using blockchain technology to ensure records are not changed, including distributed validation to ensure data integrity and limit the impact of bad actors trying to interfere with the system. This session will cover the implementation and methodology of this technology, real-world use cases, and show how this tool helps keep Ignition at the forefront of digital operations.
