News & Background

2017-04-18 : 3IF Roadshow - Industrie 4.0 & Industrieel Internet - VOKA Vlaams Brabant

3if road shows

Wat is industrie 4.0 ? Hoe verhoudt het zich tegenover Industrieel Internet? Zijn die dingen iets voor mijn bedrijf? Zijn het zware en intensieve investeringen? Op welke manier kunnen ze bijdragen tot mijn eigen organisatie? Moeten we deze evolutie volgen? Wat zijn de risico’s als we de ontwikkelingen niet volgen; wat doen onze concurrenten in binnen- en buitenland….zijn er alternatieven, ...? Deze en verschillende andere vragen worden niet altijd beantwoord.

3IF Roadshow…..Laat je inspireren
Met de 3IF Roadshow doet 3IF in 2017 diverse plaatsen aan in Vlaanderen, om een antwoord te geven op deze - en meer vragen. Laat je inspireren, ontdek en bespreek nieuwe mogelijkheden, nieuwe tendensen, ontdek verschillen en gelijkenissen, informeer je over de mogelijkheden van sensoren, capteren van gegevens op een genormaliseerde manier, data science, koppelingen naar de cloud, gebruiken van tablets en management rapportering op basis van intelligente monitoring; tot aan het ontwikkelen van nieuwe diensten mogelijk gemaakt door technologische ontwikkelingen. Tijdens de seminars geeft 3IF de mogelijkheid om ideeën te bespreken en dieper in te gaan om uitdagingen en mogelijkheden. Het 3IF team begeleidt de deelnemers in hun exploratie en adviseert tot volgende stappen. Tijdens de inspiratieseminars worden verschillende gastsprekers gevraagd om hun ervaringen te delen.

Dit evenement werd georganiseerd in samenwerking met VOKA Vlaams-Brabant.

Doelgroepen: Productiebedrijven, Process Industrie, Technologie-aanbieders

Productiebedrijven (Zaakvoerders, Productieverantwoordelijken)
De ontwikkeling naar de digitale fabriek is niet alleen van toepassing voor grote multinationals. Ook kleinere en middelgrote ondernemingen kunnen gebruik maken van nieuwe technologieën zonder dat ze daarom miljoenen moeten investeren of uitgebreid geschoold moeten zijn. De mogelijkheden lijken onbegrensd, maar daardoor ook vaak moeilijk om te inventariseren of en waarmee te beginnen als organisatie. De beschikbare toepassingen zijn ofwel zeer gespecialiseerd, of wel algemeen toepasbaar, maar daarom niet minder aantrekkelijk.

Toeleveranciers (Zaakvoerders, Productmanagers)
Ook technologiebedrijven en andere toeleveranciers zullen moeten nadenken over de gevolgen voor hun propositie, en welke plaats zij willen innemen in het ecosysteem; willen ze overleven. Er gaan zelfs al stemmen op dat bestaande oplossingen in de toekomst deels of volledig zullen komen te vervallen. Zo zullen bijvoorbeeld software ontwikkelaars steeds meer intelligentie in business software systemen moeten inbouwen; (machine-) bouwers nog meer moeten nadenken over additionele dienstverlening rondom hun product, en industriële automatiseerders over welke competenties ze moeten ontwikkelen om hun klanten goed te kunnen blijven bedienen, nu en in de toekomst.

2016-12-13: Transformatieworkshop 4: MES to I40 - De toekomst van MES,ERP & CRM in de maakindustrie

3IF3

 

MES to i40: Toekomst van MES, ERP & CRM in de Maakindustrie

Met Internet of Things (IoT) zijn alle onderdelen van een fabriek draadloos aangesloten op een netwerk. Oftewel, alles kan met alles communiceren real-time en draadloos over allerlei relevante onderwerpen, zonder rekening te hoeven houden met organisatiegrenzen en zonder tussenkomst van mensen. Producerende machines, machineonderdelen, geproduceerde producten, halffabricaten communiceren met alle andere ‘dingen’ die een rol spelen in het voortbrengingsproces, onderhoudsproces of gebruiksproces. En deze informatie-uitwisseling wordt in een rap tempo intelligenter.

De relatie van IoT en andere innovaties met MES & Business Software Applicaties
Hoe je het ook wendt of keert, IoT wordt een zogenaamde ‘game changer’ en krijgt een grote invloed op business software applicaties. MES, maar ook PLM, ERP, CRM en business intelligence worden beïnvloed door deze ontwikkeling.

Gevolgen voor zaakvoerders en productieverantwoordelijken uit de maakindustrie:
Managers zullen beter moeten nadenken over welke informatie ze echt nodig hebben om processen te optimaliseren, want de data, de techniek en de kosten van informatie zijn niet meer de belemmerende factor. Zij zullen zelf een visie moeten vormen op onderwerpen als Internet of Things en andere serieuze industrie trends. En aangezien business software aangeschaft wordt voor een langere periode, is het verstandig om ook software leveranciers te bevragen wat hun beeld is en wat zij er concreet mee gaan doen. Binnen de maakindustrie werken veel bedrijven bovendien nog met zelf ontwikkelde applicaties; maar ook met standaard applicaties die niet goed / optimaal zijn geïmplementeerd. Ook deze bedrijven zouden een oefening moeten maken voor de toekomst, op basis van de mogelijkheden die er zijn, de ontwikkelingen bij hun concurrenten, en de innovatiedoelstellingen van het bedrijf.

Gevolgen voor ontwikkelaars van MES,ERP en CRM Systemen:
Om als leverancier te overleven, zullen de ontwikkelaars anderzijds dus ook steeds meer intelligentie in de business software systemen moeten inbouwen. We zien bijvoorbeeld al een paar jaar dat ERP vanuit meerdere domeinen wordt beconcurreerd. PLM software doet dit waar het gaat om productinformatie, MES met real time informatievoorziening voor de productievloer, Business Intelligence maakt stuurinformatie beter toegankelijk en inzichtelijk en CRM met functionaliteit en intuïtief gebruik voor marketing, relatiebeheer en commercie. Maar er gaan ook stemmen op in de markt dat bestaande oplossingen in de toekomst zelfs volledig zullen komen te vervallen door de komst van IoT.

Transformatieworkshop MES to i40
Wil u meer vernemen over welke mogelijkheden de digitalisering van de productie te bieden heeft en welke rol huidige business software systemen hierin kunnen spelen? En welke van de leveranciers en bedrijven uit de maakindustrie daar al serieus mee bezig zijn; waar zij tegenaan zijn gelopen in de praktijk? Kom dan zeker naar het 3if.be MES to I40 seminar, de vierde Transformatieworkshop van 3IF.be, het samenwerkingsproject van Sirris en LSEC ter ondersteuning van digitale transformatie van de industrie, 4 oktober in Leuven.

Doelgroepen:
-Zaakvoerders en productie-verantwoordelijken vanuit de maakindustrie
-Ontwikkelaars van MES, ERP en CRM Systemen
-Systeemintegratoren en adviseurs in de industriële automatisering

Overzicht en visie op het verleden, het heden en de toekomst: 

Ulrich Seldeslachts, Managing Director van 3IF:
Relevante ontwikkelingen binnen het Industriele Internet en digitale transformatie

Mark van Pee, Senior Engineer Smart Production & Factory of the Future bij Sirris:
De toekomst van MES, PLM,ERP,CRM - een aantal scenario's, aandachtspunten en aanpak voor klanten en leveranciers

Lieven Decorte, CEO van Brighteye:
De visie en aanpak van Brighteye, waar dient een manufactuur vandaag de dag rekening mee te houden?

Dhr. Kees Lambregts, Business Development en Technical Director bij Novotek

Nico van Veen, directeur van Control-IT (MESBuilder): MES in de context van Industrie 4.0
Systeemintegratie wordt een steeds belangrijker voor productiebedrijven. Waar het om gaat is om mensen, materialen, processen, systemen en machines op de werkvloer data te laten uitwisselen zodat iedereen beschikt over de juiste informatie, in het juiste formaat, op de juiste plaats en tijd met het uiteindelijke doel om processen integraal te managen en te verbeteren (efficiency, kwaliteit en flexibiliteit). De markt vraagt om meer productvarianten geproduceerd in kleinere series, wat automatisch leidt tot een explosie van informatie op de werkvloer. Tegelijkertijd worden de interfaces complexer. Daar waar vroeger je kon volstaan met een koppeling naar een PLC, moet er nu gekoppeld worden met allerhande slimme devices en systemen (ERP,PLM,CRM enz). Een derde ontwikkeling is dat (productie)bedrijven zich willen onderscheiden van hun concurrenten. Ieder productiebedrijf in zijn geheel is dus altijd uniek, met een eigen unieke mix aan machines, workflow en managementregels. Standaard modulariteit is vaak geen afdoende antwoord. Systemen die boven een bestaande fabriek integraal het productiemanagement automatiseren worden Industrie 4.0 systemen genoemd.

In deze presentatie gaan we daar dieper op in:
• Wat zijn Industrie 4.0 systemen?
• Waarom zou je ze (niet) willen?
• Welke use cases zijn er? Praktijkvoorbeelden van diverse connected factories en slimme machines in verschillende bedrijfstakken.
• Wat maakt een Industrie 4.0 systeem succesvol?
• Is Industrie 4.0 haalbaar voor KMO (MKB ) bedrijven?
• Hoe realiseer een Industrie 4.0 systeem op een bestaande productievloer, met een bestaande bedrijfsvoering en gekoppeld op bestaande Industrie 3.0 machinebesturing en –systemen.

Ten slotte toont Nico hoe een Industrie 4.0 systeem gerealiseerd kan wordt door middel van modellering en generatie, zeg maar het 3D printen van Industrie 4.0 systemen

Over Nico van Veen: Nico is sinds 1997 ondernemer en heeft tientallen MES systemen gemaakt met MES pakketten. Nico heeft op basis van zijn ervaringen MESBuilder bedacht, een ontwikkeltool voor MES gebaseerd op modellering en generatie. Zijn motto : “Als je als ICT leverancier de boodschap predikt aan je klanten dat ze efficiënter, kwalitatief beter, flexibel en op maat moeten produceren, moet dat voor je eigen software minimaal ook gelden”

2016-11-08 : Industrial Automation Security - IAS 2016: Toekomst van beveiliging van Digitale Industrie

 

Industrial Automation Security Belgium 2016 


LSEC organiseerde in samenwerking met 3IF.be haar jaarlijkse bijeenkomst rond beveiliging bij industriële automatisatie en industriële controlesystemen. In het Iers College in Leuven werd het belang van cybersecurity aangetoond in het kader van uitdagingen rond cyberbeveiliging, Alle bedrijven in de maakindustrie, maar ook logistiek, pharma, chemie, voeding, transport, ... beschikken over een of meerdere vormen van doorgedreven automatisering. Of ze nu zelf produceren, of productiemachines realiseren, het belang van industriële beveiliging van de systemen en de automatisatie is kritisch geworden. Bijdragen van Wurldtech (GE), ARC Web, HPE en Fox IT duidden op het belang van risicobeheer en beveiliging. De discussie onderschreef het belang van zowel bestaande traditionele "legacy" systemen, die steeds vaker verbonden worden met de buitenwereld, al dan niet met medeweten van de organisatie, als van nieuwe vormen van automatisering voor smart industrie op basis van IoT en internettechnologie. Suggesties werden gemaakt voor het beter beheersen van de uitdaging op basis van Capability Assurance en procesbeheer, alsook het verder uitdiepen van het gebruiken van Security Frameworks zoals dat van het IIC. Het belang van de interne sensibilisering werd bediscussieerd, hoe dat die kan afgedwongen worden bij de interne ontwikkelingen. Suggesties werden gemaakt waarbij de governance van de organisatie mede verantwoordelijk zou worden gemaakt, zodat een interne doorstroming beter zou functioneren. Verschillende cases werden toegelicht, ook in het licht van de recente incidenten in Ukraine en de MIRAI DDOS IoT aanval.

3IF @ Ledenbijeenkomst Brancheorganisatie Industriele Automatisering;
Industrie 4.0 & Cyber Security Discussies



Op donderdag 1 december organiseerde de Nederlandse Brancheorganisatie van Industriële Automatisering een ledenbijeenkomst naar aanleiding van haar Algemene Ledenvergadering in juni 2016. Het 3IF project is uitgenodigd als partner van de vereniging om een tweetal sessies te verzorgen rondom Industry 4.0 / Smart Industry. De bijeenkomst is breed uitgezet bij de branchevereniging. Bezoekers waren vertegenwoordigers over de volledige breedte van de branche (variërend van Veldinstrumentatie, Leveranciers van sensoren, Analyse apparatuur, System Integrators, DCS leveranciers… ).


FHI 2016 1


Beide topics begonnen met een korte toelichting van experten en werd vervolgd door een discussie tussen de leden van de branchevereniging. Voor 3IF was het evenement een mogelijkheid om de activiteiten in Vlaanderen te promoten, en om ontwikkelingen hier mee terug te nemen en delen met de Vlaamse KMO toeleveranciers en maakindustrie. Paul Petersen van FHI opende de vergadering met een korte toelichting van de agenda en opzet van de dag. Vervolgens nam Ulrich Seldeslachts van 3IF het woord voor de eerste sessie rondom Industrie 4.0, gevolgd door een open discussie tussen de leden.

FHI 2016 2

Belangrijkste input voor verdere sturing van het 3IF Project:

Grote hoeveelheden aan standaarden en initiatieven wereldwijd
De bedrijven worden overspoeld met standaarden en initiatieven, vooral vanuit Duitsland en de US; maar ook in Europa naar aanleiding van een overzicht dat US toonde tijdens zijn presentatie. Belangen spelen een significante rol hier. Er wordt geopteerd om de verschillende architecturen meer te zien als een framework, waaruit je zaken kan uitpakken die voor de organisatie relevant zijn.

Legacy & interoperabiliteit
In het perspectief van protectionisme is ook gesproken over protectionisme en problemen rondom interoperabiliteit. Dit werd tegengesproken door voorbeelden uit de industrie, die zich ook steeds meer beseft dat oplossingen open moeten zijn en kunnen communiceren met andere oplossingen (voorbeeld Siemens). Een ander obstakel bij mogelijkheden tot innovatie is het vertrekpunt vanuit legacy, zowel bij de bedrijven als veel van de standaarden die in ontwikkeling zijn.

Denkrichtingen
In dit kader is ook gesproken over quick wins die bedrijven nu al zouden kunnen maken, zowel op het gebied van efficiency als bijvoorbeeld smart products. Predictive en preventive maintenance, en het inzetten van augmented reality werden besproken. Verder gaf Ulrich het voorbeeld van CNH, die hun landbouwmachines uitrusten met sensoren die tot op de m2 kunnen aangeven hoeveel graankorrels nodig zijn voor een specifiek stuk landbouwgrond, en daarmee de machine aansturen. Dit biedt de boer enorme kostenbesparingen op. Kantekening die hierbij werd geplaatst is dat deze ontwikkeling binnen CNH reeds 30 jaar gaande is. CNH is daarentegen wel een goed voorbeeld dat de aanname tegenspreekt dat je eerst een stap moet maken richting operationele excellentie in het productieproces voordat je de stap moet maken naar Smart Products.

Security

FHI 2016 3

Tijdens de inleidende presentatie van Ted Angevaare van Shell en het WIB werd nog eens duidelijk het belang van Cyber Security in industriele omgevingen en binnen het kader van digitale transformatie in het bijzonder. Afgelopen jaren zijn sessies georganiseerd met de eindgebruikersgroepen van WIB, zie http://www.wib.nl/. Cyber Security en IEC normen (62443 reeks) zijn in die sessies benadrukt. De WIB verwacht dat de normenreeks verplicht gesteld gaat worden door eindgebruikers, en dus gaan opgelegd worden aan leveranciers. Ted legde toe hoe Shell geconfronteerd werd met nieuwe cyber security vraagstukken bij het implementeren van innovatieve en kostenbesparende oplossingen binnen de plants; en hoe deze de basis vormden voor de huidige WIB- normen.

Human Skills en acceptatie per sector
De omarming van industrie 4.0 is sterk afhankelijk van de ‘appetite’ per sector en organisatie. Alle aanwezigen waren het eens dat de mens een zeer belangrijke factor speelt. Men zou meer moeten inzetten op praktische training en productonafhankelijke kennisoverdracht. Een soortgelijke terugkoppeling kwam er uit de cyber security discussie, waar het WIB ook van plan is om naast certificering en normhandhaving ook trainingen te geven juist voor engineers van de productleveranciers.

Kansen
Iedereen in de zaal is het eens dat ze mee moeten of toch in ieder geval moeten denken over de impact en kansen voor hun bedrijf. Men merkt ook bij hun klanten dat er wordt gevraagd wat hun visie is op de ontwikkelingen en hoe ze ermee omgaan. Daarnaast merken de aanwezigen dat dit onderwerp op C- level speelt, daar waar men vroeger vooral sprak met techneuten en productiemanagers.

2016-11-15 : ISN - Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference

LOGO JUIST e1424277877163

Sensors and sensor networks are becoming more and more important within our daily lives for our personal use as well as for industrial or business use. Real time information from ‘the real world’ to support decision making and control of vital processes will be an integral part of everyday life.
Wireless, smart networked sensors will soon be part of all our day-to-day activities, collecting and processing large amounts data, from traffic and weather conditions, to air quality and tidal flows.

The development of new technology has great potential for improving many current applications in areas such as:

  • Smart buildings and cities
    Transportation
    Industrial process control
    Medicine – home and assisted living medical care
    Precision agriculture
    Global scale environmental monitoring
    In a fast developing world, we think it is crucial to maintain updated and learn more about the existing technologies and applications, the challenges met by the industry, while taking a glimpse into the future of intelligent sensor networks.

 

Sensor networks for smart industry, smart logistics and smart infrastructure are getting more and more essential. Real time information from ‘the real world’ to support decision making and control of vital processes will be an integral part of business processes. With Industrial internet, Machine to Machine (M2M) or Internet of Things (ioT) traditional boundaries disappear.

The 7th edition of the international Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference will focus on the following areas:

Industrial Internet / Smart industry / Industry 4.0 (Industrial process control)
Smart logistics
Smart infrastructure (Structural Health Monitoring / predictive maintenance for buildings, bridges, windturbines, machines and many more)

Who should attend ?

The conference is mainly addressed to:

  • Companies/organizations who want to deploy sensor networks
  • Hardware and software manufacturers
  • Machine manufacturers
  • Telecom / Cable operators / service providers

Review of the 2016 Conference (Credits to Valentijn de Leeuw from ARC)

The review of the 2016 Conference below was published on Industrial IoT/Industrie 4.0 Viewpoints web log, with credits to Valentijn de Leeuw:

"The first annual conference by AGORIA and 3IF was held in Brussels on May 25 - 2016, with the intent to inspire Flemish industry to innovate through digitalization and industrial IoT (IIoT). The conference was composed of presentations covering a broad range of aspects, from high level to fairly detailed, alternated with very well facilitated panel discussions.

Diamant


Ulrich Seldeslachts of 3IF kicked off the conference introducing the 3IF project; a government – supported initiative that helps manufacturers and their suppliers benefit from Industrial Internet, IIoT and Industrie 4.0 developments; and support the competitiveness of the Industry as a whole. The initiative is led by two non-profit associations: Sirris (representing the manufacturing industry in Belgium) and LSEC(representing technology providers, integrators and the cyber security industry, also required for faster adoption of innovations securely)

Industrie 3.0 is not over

The author presented ARC’s view on Industrial IoT, and broadened the subject to other smart manufacturing aspects that can be combined with IIoT and other IT-based technologies to innovate and grow. Bart Demaeght of Siemens and Wesley Vandewalle of GE Predix provided their visions and explained their product and service portfolio’s. Piet Verhoeven of iMINDS explained how the research projects with participation of (minimum three) Flemish Industrial partners and Flemish universities create substantial revenue growth and jobs as a result of innovation projects. The following discussion covered amongst others how SME’s can go about selecting innovation projects, the fact that industrie 4.0 (and IIoT) has started to be implemented, but that their is still potential to implement « Industrie 3.0 » solutions. Connected products and producing individualized at mass production cost

The second presentation cycle was kicked of by Oliver Krause of Arthur D Little who showed results of a study indicating that digital innovators are likely to double their EBIT while digital laggards are likely to have stagnating EBIT. Dr. Krause shared the concept by Porter and Hempelmann, that connected products change business models, and lead to new supply eco-systems and disruption. Dr. Krause gave a list of success factors for major change initiatives, including the participation of the workforce during change projects, starting in the initial investigation stages, which is worthwhile to review for innovative and transforming companies. Marcel Laes of CimPro gave very insightful overview of creating visibility and creating sustainable improvement in utility management in SME’s and larger corporations in Belgium and The Netherlands. Mark Blekkink of Movilitas indicated how standards based modeling of industrial operations creates MES solutions, that remain agile and adaptable to changes in corporations, while interoperable with ERP systems. He presented a Cloud-based MES solution, an emerging trend. Presentations were concluded by Egbert-Jan Sol of TNO in the Netherlands, who gave an overview of Smart Industry and the associated Field Labs. He explained how BlockChain can help reducing the administrative cost of individualized production, thereby enabling individualized production at mass production cost, if combined with standardized PLM applications linked to production execution. Interestingly he noted that proximity of partners and executives in local Field Labs, creates dynamics that virtual collaboration could not have created. This ties back to the insight that the human factor remains a critical component in collaboration and innovation. In the following discussion, also Chris Decubber of EFFRA, The European Factory of the Future Association, and Wim Van der Borght of Reynaers Aluminium participated. Reynaert confirmed TNO’s thesis that experimentation can lead to new and successful company strategies, and EFFRA supported ARC’s view that broadening IIoT with Advanced Manufacturing creates potentially additional benefits.
