Participation only on the first day or on the second day are acceptable.

IVI , together with DMG MORI SEIKI Co., Ltd., Hitachi, Ltd., FANUC Co., Ltd., and Mitsubishi Electric Co., Ltd., has developed a framework that enables manufacturing data to be distributed mutually beyond the platforms of participating companies that manage manufacturing data. This project got subsidy from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, which is funded by industrial data sharing promotion project (based on the supplementary budget of 2017), and has been developed. The project is “Open and cooperative business for making a platform of manufacturing “, which is planned to realize “Society 5.0” and “Connected Industries”, which the Japanese government has been proposing.
For more information, see “IVI has developed and published manufacturing data distribution framework”
Annual IVI Open Symposium -Spring- has been introduced. The content of the symposium has varied and enriched year by year. It is a place where we think about “Connected manufacturing” together. The symposium would be full. Be sure to apply it soon.
« What is this year for IVI ? ≫
The year of 2019 has entered into the second month. I would like to ask the director Nishioka about the concept of this year before the symposium. (This article is the same with as the new year mail sent to the members.)
Nishioka: The Fourth Industrial Revolution (or The era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution) seems to have begun finally after the initial boom period. Startup companies and civil activists are expanding the horizon of the digital as much as possible, whereas many bureaucrats who do not know technology and engineers who do not like bureaucrats are not doing so. I do not hear about involvements of Japanese companies and Japanese people in the field. On the other hand, nationality has no meaning in this borderless world.
