Service Simulation: Taking the Guesswork Out of Service Parts Supply ChainService Parts business demands delicate balance between inventory cost and service level. Faced with unpredictable and changing reality, even the most optimally planned supply chains suffers from expensive excesses, service shortfalls, unforeseen disruptions and hazy forward-looking picture of inventory investment. To top it, service as you measure differs from what the best of breed solutions are optimizing to. In order to accurately predict service levels and get a handle on health of your inventory, you need Service Simulation. It is a unique way to get insight into your service parts supply chain, so you can make your inventory work for you – guesswork out, reality in! In this session, you will learn about the various ways you will benefit from Service Simulation, and how Philips used it in annual budgeting process.

Unscheduled Maintenance. It Can Cost Millions, Harm People And The EnvironmentSystems operating in industrial settings require a high degree of Reliability and Availability. Facilities like power generation plants, manufacturing lines, and oil & gas drilling sites rely on the operational capability of complex equipment.
The consequences of unscheduled maintenance include not just the costs of lost production revenue. Failures impact the bottom line through repair and clean-up costs while critical failures can potentially cause harm to people and the environment. Reducing the likelihood of failure in these environments has long been a goal of Reliability Engineering.
This session will discuss Machine Learning analysis, how it will better identify failures and improve preventative maintenance while providing an example of a real world application of the process.

Using IoT technology to create a 'paperless factory' to improve operational efficiencyThe main challenge we faced was the lack of visibility into the shop floor. The 'big picture' was not fully represented across the factory's manufacturing process.
Audit and compliance reporting was cumbersome requiring manual paper trails and logbooks which were prone to errors and inconsistencies. We wanted to improve operational efficiency and the utilization of resources.
With IoT we succeeded. Details of the IoT implementation include:
- Developing and setting up a 'paperless factory'
- Establishing live dashboards for real-time reporting of key metrics.
- Creating automated alarms and notifications distributed via email and mobile notifications
- Digitizing quality control templates and incorporating in the integrated system
- Making available checklists and guidance documentation to factory personnel via their mobile devices.
- Implementing predictive analytics for machine maintenance and risk avoidance.

USAF – “Increase Readiness, Improve Warfighter Support” through Agile, Integrated Planning Processes with Robust Exception Management and Analytics CapabilitiesThe U.S. Department of Defense operates the most complex global supply chain in the world. To address persisting problems, the U.S. Army established the Transforming Army Supply Chains (TASC) project to investigate the nature, causes, and consequences of demand uncertainty and supply variability.
TASC identified and tested several catalysts for innovation, including mission-based forecasting (MBF), a new concept to support demand planning for military operations. MBF capitalizes on big data, the Internet of Things (IOT), and predictive analytics for condition-based maintenance (CBM).
CBM extends predictive maintenance concepts through the use of sensors, Internet connectivity, and digital analytics to determine the remaining useful life of items and ensure replacement as needed prior to executing a particular mission.
MBF testing has resulted in substantial reductions in forecast error, inventory savings of billions of dollars, and elimination of costly work-arounds.

Using IoT To Turbo-Charge CreoCreo Schematics provides support for system diagrams that can represent IoT infrastructures from device to back-end system. Further, Creo Schematics can be used to represent directly connected devices to form a more complex system.
Coupled with the API provided with Creo Schematics, engineers and diagnosticians can combine real-time feedback from an installed system and display it on the system diagram with Creo Schematics. The live display can then be interrogated further to get down to the lower level wiring diagrams in order to verify designs and diagnose issues.
We will demonstrate how this can be done and walk through how it can be set up, so you can understand the broader use of the IoT and Creo toolsets in novel scenarios.

Delivering Smart City Solutions and an Open City Wide Platform to Accelerate Economic Growth and Promote New Solution InnovationCities have the need to both deliver smart city solutions that provide immediate value, as well as a city wide IoT platform to foster and accelerate future innovations from incubator businesses, universities, and high tech businesses. Cities can accomplish both goals with strategic smart city solution investments cities that together establish the necessary pieces of infrastructure to deliver a city wide platform. A city wide IoT platform in turn will ensure that all investments, such as physical assets, gateways, cloud environments or communication networks, are maximally leveraged and make onboarding new solutions and innovations easier, faster, and more economical.
Attend this session to learn how cities can work with an ecosystem of partners that share a common vision to immediately deliver against numerous smart city goals with new smart IoT solutions and realize new opportunities by enabling the rapid deployment of new smart city sensors and solutions by universities, start-ups, and small, medium, and large businesses. The city wide platform will enable developers and businesses to more fully leverage existing IoT infrastructure in the deployment of new sensors and new solutions, and maximize reuse and avoid the reinvention of capabilities that are common to all solutions.
The session will examine real world case studies and the key criteria for a city wide IoT platform, including as flexibility, agility, and openness. Also, importantly, the session will highlight how a platform can enable developers to add capabilities and accomplish things that would never have been possible otherwise. Ultimately, the true value of the city wide platform will be measured in its ability to accelerate economic growth in cities by promoting the creation of new local business ventures, and new services for existing businesses.
