2016-02-08: 3IF & IoTBE: Predictive Maintenance

IoT enabled intelligent fleet management. Moving from reactive to predictive maintenance, By Kalman Tiboldi - Chief Business Innovation Officer @ TVH

Internet is no longer just a global network for people to communicate with one another using computers, but it is also a platform for devices to communicate electronically with the world around them. The result is a world that is alive with information as data flows from one device to another and is shared and reused for a multitude of purposes. Harnessing the potential of all of this data for economic and social good is one of the primary challenges and opportunities. IoT enabled data driven predictive maintenance is becoming relevant in all the major industries as it can drive efficiency by providing higher levels of safety and quality at a fraction of the current costs. Thanks to Big Data, Analytics and IoT devices, predicting potential failures is going to be a real capability…but what happens after a failure is predicted, the need for maintenance is detected or a part replacement is required? Even if you can predict failures, dynamic technician scheduling associated with equipment maintenance management requires insight into real-time held inventory, technician location and estimated service completion time. Establishing an ecosystem where customers, equipment producers, service companies and all other digital service providers can collaborate is the right answer.

During the session I will explore these aspects and more, including:
How to improve quality and service by predicting malfunctions before they cause unscheduled downtime and higher costs?
• - Which are the key challenges to implement an IoT enabled predictive maintenance?
• - How to build a layered architecture for Sensing, Communication, Service and Infrastructure?
• - How predictive maintenance requires a two-step data analytics?
• - How IoT help us to implement a transformational business models like performance-based or pay-per use billing?

About Kalman Tiboldi: Kalman Tiboldi is the Chief Business Innovation Officer of TVH, worldwide market leader in replacement parts for material handling and in-plant industrial vehicles and has over 35 year experience in using information technology for business process innovation. Kalman merged IT and Business in a new department called Business Innovation through IT (BI²T) and managed to promote the collaboration between IT and Business as driving force behind innovation. With his team he has successfully implemented a flawless IT infrastructure with flexible applications, based on service-oriented architecture, turning TVH into a real-time, extended enterprise.
Providing the leadership and direction towards the development and implementation of information systems, Kalman is taking advantage from Cloud-based Services, Big Data and Internet of Things and strongly support Open Source solutions. Kalman holds a Civil engineer polytechnician degree from Military Technical Academy of Bucharest and a Master of Mathematics and Computer Science degree from University of Bucharest.
He was named IT Manager of the Year’ – Large Organizations in 2004 and 2011 by Leading European Trade Publication, Data News.


Predictive Analytics, By Prof. Dr. Mannens - Research Manager @ iMinds

2015-10-20 START 2 SECURE: KMO's, Beveiliging van Bedrijventerreinen en Cyber Security


Nog te vaak zijn KMO’s het slachtoffer van inbraak, diefstal of vandalisme. Beveiliging van volledige bedrijventerreinen komt meer en meer in beeld als één van de oplossingen. Tegelijkertijd neemt het aantal informatica-incidenten de laatste jaren schrikwekkend toe: cybercriminelen viseren de IT-systemen van KMO’s eerder dan die van sterk beveiligde grote bedrijven. Dit brengt risico’s als diefstal van product- en klantgegevens, betaalfraude, chantage,… met zich mee. Start 2 Secure wil KMO’s en andere geïnteresseerden op 20 oktober 2015 informeren omtrent integrale beveiliging van hun bedrijf/bedrijventerrein en IT-beveiliging. Deze eerste editie van Start 2 Secure gaat door te Veurne en is een gezamenlijke organisatie van POM West-Vlaanderen, INNOS vzw en SBM.

2015-12-10 3IF & EluciDATA International Seminar

Join manufacturing, engineering and business professionals from leading manufacturers, solution providers and industry groups as they share the practical information, strategic insight and real-life expertise you need to plan, execute and optimize your IIoT implementations and data innovation strategies

3IF & EluciDATA: Industrial Internet, Internet of Things and Data Innovation in Industry:

3IF – Industrial Internet Consortium Flanders
– is an initiative by LSEC and Sirris to support the development of Industrial Internet, Industrie 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things in Belgium, especially towards the manufacturing industry. We will bring them closer to understanding the technologies for digital manufacturing, the impact on their business, and how they could make their first steps to improve flexibility, quality and cost reduction in their production process. The project EluciDATA aims to stimulate data innovation (i.e. innovation by focused data exploitation) in industry. On December 10th in Brussels, the 2 projects unite to to share expertise and best practice cases in Flanders, Belgium and beyond; in industrial internet, industrie 4.0 and big data for industry. National and international experts will share their perspectives on both the current state of affairs and also provide an insight the future.

Some of the Speakers:

Industrial Internet of Things - The role of the Operator - Proximus

What is the role of the operator in supporting Industrial Internet, Machine 2 Machine Communication? Proximus provides an interesting perspective, including a short introduction of the LoRa Alliance, an open, non-profit association aimed to to standardize Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) being deployed around the world to enable Internet of Things (IoT), machine-to-machine (M2M), and smart city, and industrial applications.

Discovery analytics for the process industry, Thomas Dhollander - D square
Today's process industry companies collect vast amounts of sensor, actuator and control data in so-called process historians. These data hold great promise for mining and sharing process know-how that is currently only available in the "fingerspitzengefuhl" of aging workers. In practice however, process data cannot be easily mined due to a lack of contextualization and analytics capabilities. As a consequence, decision making in most production facilities still heavily relies on the episodal memory of stakeholders operating the plant. Learning between workers on different shifts, stakeholders with different roles and employees with various levels of experience can be greatly improved. Recent search and big data technologies can play a role to turn data sinks into information sources, capture and share process know-how and make learning from historical data easier. Based on extensive research on plug-and-play data mining solutions for the process industry we recently launched TrendMiner, a discovery analytics engine for process measurement data.

About Thomas Dhollander: Thomas is co-founder at D square, where he is involved in the R&D of innovative data mining tools for the industry. From 2005 to 2008 he was active as a data mining and machine learning research engineer at the KULeuven University in Leuven, Belgium. Thomas holds a Master in Science in Mechanical-Electrotechnical engineering (data mining & automation, KULeuven, Leuven, 2004) and a Master of Arts in Cognitive and Neural Systems (Boston University, Boston MA, 2005).

OPC UA: Key technology in the worldwide strategy for Industial Internet of Things, Wim Tindemans - Control & Protection
Nowadays everybody talks about IoT or IIoT, industry 4.0, Big Data and data analysis. In order to get the system aligned with this level of integration, customers are faced with new challenges. How to get the data? How to structure my data? How to manage security when we talk about industrial data? What is the impact of standards like OPC UA on this? Here you get answers on the fact why OPC UA is key technology in the worldwide strategy for IoT. Wim will share information about the new OPC‐UA Global Discovery Server implementation which is the first implementation in the world. This is a practical example on how you create the foundation, the base structures for future automation.

Are you a manufacturer, industrial automation supplier, integrator or policy maker, interested to learn about market developments, smart networks, how to get the most out of production data, optimize communication between machines, smart sensors, applications and people….? Then this event is for you.
