Digitalization of Automation Systems 2020

25.11.20 - 26.11.20

Digitalization of Automation Systems er en konferanse som tar for seg hvordan automasjonsfaget og -systemene forventes å utvikle seg.

Kontrollsystemer i industrien blir nå mer og mer påvirket av hva som skjer i IT-verdenen. Skillet mellom OT og IT blir stadig mer utydelig. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) er en teknologi som påvirker produksjonsindustrien i større og større grad.

For å regulere denne utviklingen er det noen viktige støttespillere som jobber med standarder, regler og regulativer. IEC (International Electrotechnical Commision), IIC (Industrial Internet Consortium), Open Group and the Open Process Automation Forum (OPAF) og NAMUR Open Architecture er aktører på denne arenaen.

I framtiden må du forstå forkortelser som OPC UA, AML, AAS, MTP, DDS, PA-DIM og Ontologi. Du må kunne vite hva disse faktisk betyr for ditt anlegg. Dette vil du få svar på under Digitalization of Automation Systems 2020.

På konferansen vil eksperter innenfor disse temaene snakke om utviklingen innen automasjonsfaget og automasjonssystemene.

Vi vil starte Digitalization of Automation Systems 2020 med å gi deg et godt overblikk over de ulike initiativene. Deretter vil vi gå videre med mer detaljerte presentasjoner. Samlet vil dette gi deg en grundig og verdifull forståelse av hva disse akronymene faktisk betyr i praksis.

Her finner du en oversikt over våre øvrige kurs og konferanser.
