Industrial IoT & Smart Manufacturing
The impact of IoT and Industrial IoT is driving Smart Manufacturing and the adoption of IoT frameworks and technologies are rapidly gaining traction as industries are adopting automation and improving manufacturing processes. IIoT will drive manufacturing efficiency and the return on investment. High impact and productivity gains provided by IIoT through IoT connectivity protocols, Integration of IT/OT business and TSN, sensor systems and integration of edge computing and analytics will continue to accelerate and drive IIoT transformation in the coming years. At the core of this transformation are critical issues such as data security, privacy, identity and trust that will be a critical focus of this program.
The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) Industry Connections (IC) program helps incubate new standards and related products and services by facilitating collaboration among organizations and individuals as they hone and refine their thinking on rapidly changing technologies. See below for some of the activities related to Industrial IoT and Smart Manufacturing.
PLC IoT Interoperability and Compliance Testing
This IC activity will focus on selection of the labs for the testing, analysis and publication of the results, identification of the ambiguities and gaps in the standard and related test procedures, generation of additional use cases, and broader industry engagement with the goal of the acceleration of the adoption of the IEEE 1901.1 standard during its development and after the publication.
