8:30 am - 9:00 am Continental Breakfast
9:00 am - 9:30 am Overview of OMG, 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.

9:30 am - 10:30 am Panel Discussion - OMG Standards at Work in the IIoT
Moderator:  Nick Stavros, President & CEO, Jackrabbit Consulting

Djenana Campara, CEO KDM Analytics and Co-Chair OMG System Assurance Task Force
Matthew Hause, GTM Technical Specialist, Engineering Fellow, PTC, OMG UPDM Co-Chair 
Nina Tucker, Vice President, Twin Oaks Computing
Andrew Foster, Product Marketing Manager, PrismTech
Dr. Stan Schneider, CEO, Real-Time Innovations, Inc. 
This panel will take an in-depth look at some of the OMG standards that are proving integral to IIoT efforts around the globe. Industry experts and OMG task force chairs will discuss OMG Standards including Data Distribution Service (DDS), System Assurance (SysA), Systems Modeling Language (SysML) as well as other OMG standards and the role they play in security, dependability and efficiency in the IIoT. 

BIO: Nick Stavros has almost 50 years of experience covering a wide range of interests from modeling of large scale systems to developing real-time device drivers. He has an interest in Cloud Computing and especially as it relates to the Internet of Things (IoT). He has a PhD from Virginia Tech and has worked-on and consulted with the military for over 25 years.
10:30 am - 10:45 am Morning Refreshment Break
10:45 am - 11:15 am From Testbed to International Standard - The Track & Trace Example
Kai Hackbarth, Evangelist & Co-Chair OSGi Residential Expert Group                VIEW PDF      
Abstract:  Track & Trace is the first IIC Testbed that is on course to create an international standard based on the concrete results from the testbed. The focus is on open interfaces for the integration of industrial power tools, including drilling, tightening, riveting, welding and measurement. This session provides an overview of the use cases and the need for open standards, as well as an outlook for the planned standardization process.

Bio: Kai Hackbarth joined ProSyst in 2001. Since then, he has been deeply involved in the technical standardization activities of the OSGi Alliance. Kai is a member of the OSGi Alliance Board of Directors and since 2008 co-chair of the OSGi Residential Expert Group. Kai is coordinating the research project activities of ProSyst in various IoT domains. His key areas are smart homes, automotive, and the Internet of Things in general, where he actively supports the current developments and strategic positioning of ProSyst's product portfolio.
11:15 am - 11:45 am  Software Security Issues in the Industrial Internet
Dr. Bill Curtis, Director, Consortium for IT Software Quality (CISQ)                 VIEW PDF
Abstract:  The daily reports of system outages and breaches show no signs of abating, and embedded software has seen its share of product problems. Since IoT will be integrating systems built by different vendors and manufacturers, incorrect assumptions about how different systems work and integrate will be a major challenge. Product manufacturers in particular will have to move beyond practices such as lean and six sigma that worked for physical products, to embrace practices more relevant to intellectual artifacts such as software. Software components will have to be robust and dependable enough to work in an environment characterized by supply chains with other components undergoing frequent change, a dark universe of potential interactions with software the developer was unaware of, and sly attack patterns by those with nefarious intent. Strengths and weaknesses of current practices and quality technologies will be discussed.

Bio: Dr. Curtis is currently a Senior Vice President and Chief Scientist of CAST Software, Inc. He is also the Director of the Consortium for IT Software Quality, a Special Interest Group of OMG. He is best known for leading the development of the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) while at the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. He co-founded TeraQuest Metrics in 1993, which was acquired by Borland Software Corporation in 2005. During 1983-1990 he founded the Human Interface Laboratory and later led Design Process Research at MCC, the American Fifth Generation Computer Research Consortium in Austin, Texas. Previously he developed a global software productivity and quality measurement system at ITT's Programming Technology Center and led research on software development practices in General Electric Space Division (now a division of Lockheed Martin). He started his career as a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Washington where he also taught behavioral statistics. He was elected a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers for his contributions to software process improvement and measurement.
