Industrial Internet Consortium - Risk management in the age of digital manufacturing - practical consideration
Presented by Dr. Detlev Richter
As safety regulations struggle to keep up with technology developments of smart manufacturing, a safety architecture which observes and considers the complete safety (and security) chain in a life -cycle perspective becomes of vital importance to manage risk. Based on technology and regulatory trends, as well as learnings from a German pilot line for modular machinery, this presentation highlights crucial requirements for “Risk Assessment 4.0” and introduces pragmatic solutions for a safe transition to smart manufacturing.
The IIOT Connected!
Presented by Joe Lomako
The world is rapidly becoming more connected and almost all (if not all!) industries are connected in some way. And the Industrial Machinery world is one that is taking the bull by the horns. They are seeing the benefits of connectivity in driving and improving business in many different aspects, such as safety, process efficiency, security and so on.
However, connectivity does come at a cost; particularly when using radio. Most companies around the globe have some kind of compliance process which must be observed before the product can be imported and utilised.
This presentation looks at the history of connectivity; explores and demonstrates the benefits, but also provides an insight into the regulatory requirements on a global scale and more importantly how to prepare!
Functional Safety in an IoT world
Presented by Stewart Robinson
This presentation addresses the challenges and opportunities for the realisation of Functional Safety in the IoT world. The use of devices connected to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a fundamental part of Smart Manufacturing to help realise the benefits of digitalisation as part of the 4th Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0). In this presentation traditional approaches to achieve Functional Safety are compared with the emerging technologies that make use of IIoT, for example by the use of digital twins.
Cloud based solutions - the future of machinery safety assessments
Presented by Chris Norris
Managing machinery safety is a challenging task, particularly when the organisation concerned has multiple sites worldwide. Through the use of several case studies, Chris Norris, Product manager for the mCom ONE software, will show the benefits of a cloud based management tool and also look to the future of machinery safety assessments.
ATEX - practical consideration and implementation
Presented by Rhodri Morgan
As safety regulations continue to progress within the world of explosive atmospheres how can we maintain compliance and improve safety to its highest level? Non-electrical equipment (Mechanical) placed within potentially explosive atmosphere has been required to be Ex certified since 2003, but a lot of companies either choose to ignore, don’t understand or are simply un-aware of the risks. “It’s been fine for the last 30 years, why worry now?” is a general response. This is fine until it goes wrong, and when things go wrong from an ATEX perspective it is on a large scale!
Competency is mandatory within explosive atomospheres and this presentation highlights the crucial requirements to maintain and improve safety. It introduces pragmatic solutions applicable to current and future customers who have concerns within the existing industry, or supply to the hazardous area industry, which are of vital importance to managing risk.
