    ≪ IVI attended Japan-China Smart Manufacturing Seminar ≫

      In response to a request of attendance by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Prof. Nishioka, IVI president, attended the 3rd Japan-China Smart Manufacturing Seminar held in Beijing, China on December 20. He introduced an overview of IVI and Business model development project for data transaction using “Connected Industries Open Framework (CIOF)” in a panel discussion, “Application of new technologies in smart manufacturing, utilization of a platform of cooperative companies”. CIOF had been already known in China, and were highly evaluated by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Industry in China (similar to Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in Japan). There was a feeling that there would be activities in standardization and business chances there in future.

    IVI Newsletter No.27 (July 8, 2019)

        Three months have passed since the beginning of the fiscal year. The activities of IVI have become full-fledged as the era has shifted from Heisei(平成) to Reiwa(令和) in Japan . The Business Scenario WG’s 2019 have also started up, and the activity of “Manufacturing Data Transaction” is also in full swing. Please pay attention to IVI in Reiwa.

    ≪ “Manufacturing Data Trading” Seminar Report≫

     The briefing about “Manufacturing Data Transaction” project was held at TKP Ichigaya Conference Center in Tokyo on July 2 (Tuesday). There were 81 people in Tokyo and 15 people in Nagoya (Brother Museum), where the contents were connected online with the Tokyo venue. The Tokyo venue was full, with the exception of reserved seats in the front area, which indicated strong interests and expectations to the project in industry fields.

        Secretary-General Yuji Watanabe introduced about IVI and its activities. President Yasuyuki Nishioka had detailed explanations on manufacturing data trading, an overview of CIOF, business models based on stakeholders and the coming schedule. CIOF is an abbreviation of Connected Industries Open Framework. It is aimed to create a platform corresponding to Connected Industries (so called ConeInn (コネイン)) driven by the government / the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. Participants listened the presentation carefully, which explained about what CIOF is, when the new data transaction mechanism using blockchain is fully commercialized and what business benefits it would have.
