8:55 am - 9:15 am Introduction to Object Management Group, the Industrial Internet and Current IIoT Standards
Andrew Watson, Vice President and Technical Director Object Management Group® (OMG®)                         VIEW PDF
Abstract:  Products implementing OMG standards are at the heart of many Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems, from controlling hydro-electric power generation to integrated logistics fleet management systems. Relevant OMG standards include:
  • Data-Distribution Service for Real-Time Systems (DDS), the premier open middleware standard directly addressing publish-subscribe communications for real-time and embedded systems
  • Interaction Flow Modeling Language (IFML), a relatively new standard, used to design viable user interfaces with the IIoT
  • System Assurance (SysA) and Software Quality specifications which are critical to building secure and dependable multi-platform systems
  • Systems Modeling Language (SysML), which provides the tools and notations for designing complex interdisciplinary systems and systems-of-systems that incorporate multiple components at large scale.
  • Information modelling and interoperability standards like the Ontology Definition MetaModel (ODM) and Model Driven Message Interoperability (MDMI) specifications, which designers can use to ensure that they are ascribing consistent semantics to the information flowing across IIoT applications.

This overview puts DDS, IFML, SysA, SysML, ODM, MDMI and OMG's other IIoT work in context, describing the areas where OMG standards provide a foundation for IIoT deployments around the globe.

Bio:  Andrew has overall responsibility for OMG's technology adoption process, and also chairs the Architecture Board, the group of distinguished technical contributors from OMG member organizations which oversees the technical consistency of OMG's specifications.

9:35 am - 10:05 am Social Value Creation via IoT: Smart City, Enterprise and Service Solutions
Kurt Jacobs, Director, IoT Solutions, NEC Enterprise Communication Technologies                 VIEW PDF
Abstract: IoT’s value goes beyond an exchange of sensor information and analysis. It is a revolution in information and communication that creates an enhanced social infrastructure in which the cyber world is uniquely integrated with the real world. An integration that rearranges and increases the role of cyber based devices and information with when, where and how humans interact or react. Even with increases in device connectivity, humans remain the most important aspect of the system. It is the value they extract in terms of safety, efficiency, security, environmental protection and equality that is the benchmark of success. In this session, we will share examples and best practices of how to deploy IoT sensors, structure tiered information analysis and more importantly bring the “human in the loop” for smart city and enterprise IoT solutions. Referencing IIC frameworks and case studies, we will explore items to consider to avoid common issues, concerns and pitfalls when deploying an IoT system.

Bio: A 20 year veteran of emerging communication technologies and system deployments, Kurt leads product and solution development enabling the new enterprise value chain with Internet of Things (IoT), including Unified Communications and Visual ICT technologies.

10:05 am - 10:20 am Refreshment Break
10:20 am  - 10:50 am Systems Engineering and the Internet of Things
Matthew Hause,GTM Technical Specialist, Engineering Fellow, PTC, OMG UPDM Co-Chair                           VIEW PDF
Graham Bleakley, Ph.D., Solution Architect, IBM's IOT Watson Group, OMG UPDM Co-Chair                                         
Abstract:  The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of systems (SoS) in every sense of the definition. The future of IoT success, including technology advancements and revenue generating potential across the business spectrum, is dependent on the application of solid Systems Engineering and Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) principals. Without MBSE, the complexity involved in the design, development, and deployment of IoT systems would consume both system and operational providers. Absent of any industry standards, IoT systems cannot be built in a vacuum and their success will only be realized through application of modern day systems engineering processes, methods, and tools. Technology advancements in consumer products will continue to evolve to facilitate connection to larger and larger IoT networks. This will be the catalyst that will drive entire infrastructures changes to: Federal, State, City, and local governments; product development companies; utility and service providers; and even to consumers and their homes in order to support the growing demand for connected products. The infrastructure and management will need to be established prior to, or in conjunction with, the smart systems that support them.
