Open Process Automation – Technology Unlocking Business Value
8:00 AM - 8:40 AM

The term “Industrial Internet of Things” (IIOT) means many things to many people - the marketplace generally agrees that IIOT will bring pervasive measurement from network connected sensors providing a lake of data to be turned into actionable information by applying advanced tools like data analytics, AI, and machine learning.  How does Industrial get added to “IOT”?  With standards based, open interfaces.  With the abstraction of hardware and software.  With enhanced security built in by design.  With interoperability, interchangeability, and portability as key quality attributes.  

ExxonMobil started their Open Process Automation Program to address the need to unlock business value. Through a Proof of Concept, a Prototype on a Pilot Unit, and now a Test Bed with Collaboration Partners, ExxonMobil has been demonstrating that the quality attributes of Open Process Automation can deliver benefit and value.  A competitive marketplace inspires and unlocks innovation.  Conformance to industrial standards ensures interoperability.  The ExxonMobil vision for Open Process Automation is: a standards-based, open, secure, and interoperable process control architecture that promotes innovation and value creation.  ExxonMobil will share the vision of Open Process Automation and how it can provide an architecture for IIOT technology and unlocking business value.

Digital Twins and Digital Threads
12:00 PM - 12:40 PM

Intelligent data collection and use, adapting processes and training people. The capital projects industry has a very mixed record of delivering complex projects on time and on budget. The use of digital technologies and the creation of a digital twin as the single version of the truth, coupled with a digital thread running from project inception to (eventually) decommissioning is a means by which the energy, AEC and capital projects can be transformed, and this transformation relies on intelligent collection and use of data, adapting processes and training people.

Enabling Next Generation Connected Workers
1:00 PM - 1:40 PM

Industrial IoT in oil and gas applications touches both operations and maintenance.  With connectivity to process, mechanical, electrical, and structural data; insights drive field action to improve production performance and equipment reliability.

Field action places workers in dangerous environments with complicated tasks to perform.   Connecting the worker to standard procedures, to remote experts, and to current equipment data facilitates execution of work.  The plant enjoys “first time fix”,  work documentation, and real-time training and support.  The connected worker further benefits from a hands-free interface,  deploying the connectivity in the safest format possible.   Lastly, the same connected worker infrastructure offers on the job training, including the ability for experienced operations and maintenance personnel to share their experience and knowledge as captured visual and step by step instructions.   This presentation describes the context of the connected worker, and shares details of its work execution benefits with demonstrations
