Agenda Day 1 :

• Brussels, Quartier Papier - Tuesday September 11th
• Build your business case in two hours
• Ticket Fee: EUR 195 per attendee

The 3IF conference starts with a series of parallel workshops on September 11th. Participants will have the opportunity to take a deep dive into specific topics to maximize the learning experience. In each workshop, participants will be presented with background materials, bringing them up to speed on concepts, fundamentals, objectives, experiences and state of the art. Following this, some cases will be elaborated during joint Q&A. Finally 2 cases will be worked upon in a structured approach in 4 smaller groups. Joint results will be debated in the group and moderated by the experts with some final advice. There will be 7 workshops ran in parallel. Please note that we’ll only allow 18 participants per workshop and that all reservations made are based on a first come, first serve basis. There will be 3 chances to participate in each of the workshops. Every 2 hour workshop will be followed by a 30 min break.


9.00 : welcome & registration

9.15 : pdf introduction and objectives of the day by Ulrich Seldeslachts, 3IF.be

09.20 : 1. pdf Business, Application and People before Technology (658 KB) : facilitated by 3IF, Valentijn De Leeuw: Participants will be guided through some modelling exercises on the basis of some real life cases, in order to guide the development of potential business cases internally. Some examples include Condition Based Maintenance, Process Optimization concepts, Energy optimization, Digital Servitization.

  • Generalizing business modeling across industries
  • Choosing an application and setting up a business case
  • Mobilizing teams and preparing POC
  • Key concepts of : energy efficiency, process optimization, condition based maintenance, product digitization, integrating operator assistance

10.30 :   pdf 2. Analytics 4.0 workshop : facilitated by Yazzoom, Jan Verhasselt (2.43 MB) : Crucial step in the digitization process is the ability to extract actionable insights from the data. Especially when the insight is extracted by combining data from different sensors and data sources using some mathematical model, that model can be complex. It is therefore important that the creation and maintenance of such mathematical model is made as easy as possible. Both in case that mathematical model is built using expert knowledge, and in case that model is learnt from data using machine learning (AI) techniques. In this workshop we will explain the different data modelling techniques with their pro’s and con’s, and will demonstrate recent software that makes the creation and maintenance of such models feasible for non data-scientists.

  • Different approaches for predictive and prescriptive analytics projects in industry
  • How to build your own mathematical models in Excel and deploy and maintain them on live data in an industrial context
  • How AI is used to learn the normal behavior of your machine or production line from data and detect anomalies automatically

About : Jan Verhasselt holds a Master in Industrial Sciences in Automation, a Master of Science in Physics and a PhD in Applied Sciences with speciality Automatic Speech Recognition. He held several research and management positions before founding Yazzoom. See his LinkedIn page for more details.

12.30 : lunch break – demonstration of IoT devices

  pdf Selecting the right sensor for the right application (1.79 MB) facilitated by 3IF.be, Daniel Bora  When available use the data from the production machines in the first place. But in many cases there won’t be any machine interface, the fieldbus is too rudimentary, the OPC (UA) connection doesn’t learn anything new. Some experiences from the field utilizing specific flowsensors, energy measurements, vibration, inspection camera’s … and other types of sensing devices. Next step is to parametrize the sensors and utilizer multiple measurement tools. Various types of sensors, Fit for purpose, Measure locally, aggregate and calculate on site, aggregate and visualize in the cloud, Sensor technologies under development

About :  Technical Engineer with a strong experience in the Industrial Maintenance, he started in 1988 in the Metallurgical heavy industry environment, mainly in the preventive and curative maintenance direction. Later in 2002, he starts to use the Predictive Maintenance tools and procedures, and from then, he advances in this direction, adopting in his daily activity the PdM applications and tools, now by the Industry 4.0 and IIoT standards and methods. 

13.15 :   pdf 4. Cybersecurity for Digital Transformation : facilitated by Secudea (1.79 MB) Security by Design has to be a part of the Digital Transformation. But how to practically implement such a strategy on operational platforms, where most field engineers are not familiar with any cybersecurity expertise. From network segmentation, isolation through secure use of API’s, interacting with cloud systems and use of authenticated access. Insights in ways to monitor and to setup a governance.

  • Risk based approach
  • Setting priorities
  • Policies, processes and procedures
