Presenter #1: Adam McMurtrey, CMRP, ExxonMobil Field Engineer

Artificial intelligence, big data and the IIoT all have the potential to radically improve operational performance; but technology alone won’t solve these challenges. Insights into human behavior are necessary to effectively leverage data to drive operations and maintenance improvements. For example, technology won’t tell you which data amongst a dataset is most important to improving reliability of a gearbox nor how that effort impacts your overarching program. This presentation will outline a human-centered, technology blueprint to build a best-in-class operation that provides the operational intelligence necessary to properly interpret actionable data and improve overall equipment efficiency and productivity.

THREE TAKEAWAYS:  Join Adam to learn new techniques for using your data to boost your efficiency.

  1. The emergence of Industry 4.0 and the connected plant offers the promise of an exciting future, but technological advancements on their own are not enough to reap the maximum benefits.
  2. Unlocking the full power of Industry 4.0 requires a human-led approach in order for operators to better understand the dependences of the specific operation.
  3. When implemented properly, Industry 4.0 will allow operators access to far more actionable insights based on the specific operation's goals.

Presenters 2 & 3: Jason Hamlin, Chief Operations Officer, Instrulogic & Benson Hougland, VP of Marketing & Product Strategy, Opto 22

As our industry transitions into the next wave of productivity under the banner of Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet of Things, or the more broadly defined digital transformation, we reach into our trusty toolbox of technology to build or augment systems to address the opportunity. However, our traditional tools weren’t designed for the challenges that lie ahead, and they can limit the opportunity for real change or, worse, hold back projects from reaching their potential.

In this webinar, we’ll introduce new tools and technologies that leverage your existing systems—adding scalability, security and performance—and springboard your digital transformation projects forward.

You’ll learn more about:

  • The differences between poll-response and publish-subscribe data communications
  • Ways to use edge computing to create a secure foundation for connected systems
  • How to break free from aging automation paradigms to solve problems and democratize data
