What sessions will be offered at Rockwell Automation TechEd Tuesdays?
TechEd Tuesdays are ½-day sessions that will take place over a 5-week period. The program will cover five separate modules, each of which consists of one theoretical session with Q&A and one optional and flexible follow-up practical session via onCourse, our ground-breaking virtual hands-on lab experience.
These bite-size modules will cover a range of topics including:
- Smart Devices — Smart devices are integral components for smart machines and are a company’s first step in capturing operational data. They enable smarter, more informed decision making and act as foundation for smart systems and machines. These devices allow you to begin your digital transformation journey as everything starts with smart devices, which is why it’s so important to have a thorough understanding them.
- Smart Machines — Smart machines and intelligent equipment use digital technologies to move beyond conventional control, operation and maintenance paradigms. They can both deliver and translate data into insights that support better decision-making while also providing robust security and greater connectivity to your plant and supply chain networks. Learning how to optimise your smart machine performance is a valuable skill to have.
- Smart Systems — Smart systems deliver better business outcomes such as increased efficiency, higher throughputs, and greater product customisation. These industrial control systems are designed for simplicity and scalability and can help you achieve the outcomes you want in a cost-effective, sustainable way. Detailed knowledge of these smart systems can therefore help deliver fast ROI over a longer period.
- Process — Taking real-time data directly from a process is a key benefit of smart operations. However, if the data is not applied properly, these benefits are quickly lost. Understanding how to generate and implement actionable information means your Distributed Control System can provide contextual, actionable insights that improve decision-making and lead to greater efficiencies.
- IIoT Ecosystem — New technologies require new operating models. Smart manufacturing uses cloud-connected machinery to monitor production processes whereby machines can communicate with each other, integrate to reduce errors, improve workflow and share data. By focusing on your information technology, you can identify opportunities to incorporate those new technologies effectively and use data analytics to optimise your entire manufacturing process.
