Key Note Address:
What is IoT and Why Should You Start this Journey in Manufacturing?

(Max Atria, OPAL Room 102)

Mr CK Vishwakarma
Chief Executive Officer

Most of the business leaders are still figuring out why they should start a digital transformation journey in manufacturing environment, this session will provide key insights to the business leaders on why and how to start the Digital Journey in Manufacturing.

10:15am - 10:40am

What is Digital Transformation? Is it Different from Traditional Process Improvement Methods?

(Max Atria, OPAL Room 102)

Mr Liang Ying Shun
Consultant, DELMIA AP South Solution
Dassault Systemes

The digital revolution is now breaching the walls of manufacturing as it continues to disrupt media, finance, consumer products, healthcare, and other sectors. Indeed, the explosion in data and new computing capabilities—along with advances in other areas such as artificial intelligence, automation and robotics, additive technology, and human-machine interaction—are unleashing innovations that will change the nature of manufacturing itself. Industry and academic leaders agree that digital-manufacturing technologies will transform every link in the manufacturing value chain, from research and development, supply chain, and factory operations to marketing, sales, and service. Digital connectivity among designers, managers, workers, consumers, and physical industrial assets will unlock enormous value and change the manufacturing landscape forever.

10:45am - 11:10am

Collaboration of OT & IT for Digital Transformation

(Max Atria, OPAL Room 102)

Mr Ravi Singh
Vice President, ICT Solutions Business ASEAN
Hitachi Asia

In the past, information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) were seen as two distinct domains of a business. The former focused on all technologies that were necessary to manage the processing of information, whereas the latter supported the devices, sensors and software that were necessary for physical value creation and manufacturing processes. However when organization start their IoT journey, the two functional teams need to collaborate. In this session speaker will provide practical insights, on how to drive the collaboration between IT and OT

11:15am - 11:40am

Digital Factory- Case Studies on A.I. Visual Inspection

(Max Atria, OPAL Room 102)

Mr Hiroaki Kishiro
Head, JOC Division Singapore
NEC Asia Pacific

AI Visual Inspection" utilizes "RAPID Machine Learning Technology", one of NEC's cutting-edge AI technology "NEC the WISE", to obtain the target product image (X-ray image ), We will realize high-speed inspections on the production lines of parts processing industries such as metal and resin and rubber.

By doing this, it is possible to reduce the inspection man-hours required by manual work to about 1/2, and to make the manufacturing quality uniform that utilize IoT and contribute to strengthening the competitiveness of manufacturing industry.

11:45am - 12:10pm

Round Table Discussion:
The Approach to IoT, Business Models for Industry 4.0

(Max Atria, OPAL Room 102)

Mr CK Vishwakarma
Chief Executive Officer

Mr Julien Condamines
Managing Director
Co-Creation Lab

Today, most companies see the value of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) as additional information— data—that can help them do the things they already do, just better and more efficiently. But for some companies, a much greater value is coming in the form of whole new capabilities—new products, services and businesses that could not exist without IIoT technology. This higher value of IIoT is hidden in a lot of people’s minds—they’re not able to see the potential.

From IT to OT to IoT: Are We Protecting Them Right?

(Max Atria, OPAL Room 102)

Mr Ken Soh
Chief Executive Officer
Athena Dynamics

No manufacturing plant is an island today. From its Enterprise Information Technology (IT) infra-structures to its Operational Technology (OT) Industrial Control Systems; and now Internet of Things (IoT) devices, we can no longer function without connectivity and integrations. As connectivity widens from IT to OT and to IoT systems, it’s risk exposure to cyber threats increases in depth and in breadth. While it is right for plants to invest and strengthen its people, process and technology against such threats, are we doing it right in the first place? This sharing session focuses on the common gaps and mindsets in cyber protection from an operational and practitioner’s perspective, with real experiences observed via a live digital and business transformation journey.

AI/Machine Learning & Future of Factory

(Max Atria, OPAL Room 102)

Mr Setu Chokshi
Executive Director

Machine learning’s core technologies align well with the complex problems manufacturers face daily. From striving to keep supply chains operating efficiently to producing customized, built- to-order products on time, machine learning algorithms have the potential to bring greater predictive accuracy to every phase of production. Many of the algorithms being developed are iterative, designed to learn continually and seek optimized outcomes. These algorithms iterate in milliseconds, enabling manufacturers to seek optimized outcomes in minutes versus months.In this session, speaker will share how ML can be applied in various industrial application and be benefited.

4:30pm - 4:55pm
