Bryan Moser will give a talk and be on a panel for IEEE on April 9, 2020. The link is https://iotslam.com/iot-day-slam-2020-agenda/. The sessions are free.
Organizations working with engineered and manufactured systems have decades of pioneering experience in the design, implementation, and operation of instrumented products. Aerospace, automotive, maritime, and building systems are often highly laden with sensors that observe real-time performance of these products as they operate. Remote observers communicate and control these systems from afar. Over the lifetime of these systems – airplanes, cars, buildings, and ships – data on the performance across a large set of diverse, released product systems reveals much about the gap between as-designed, as-built, and as-operated actual systems.
Even though the IoT trend is not new, the scale, reduced latency and cost, heterogeneity, and especially interconnectivity of these systems across economic and social infrastructures have advanced dramatically. For this talk, rather than viewing sensor and data product by product, we consider the combined performance of instrumented products and instrumented people.
Instrumentation of teamwork will be shown as the capability to see and predict in real time the performance of human teams as they work, coordinate, wait, make mistakes, adjust and learn (or not.) In this presentation we will focus on the instrumentation and analysis of engineering teams, and other teams of diverse capability working on complex systems. To take advantage of these opportunities, not only will the design of our engineered systems advance, but also how we engineer will be transformed. The important concurrent trend in model-based or digital engineering along with IoT will be considered.
