The fiscal year 2019 of IVI will start now. The following seminar, Startup and welcome seminar, will be held so that the activities of this year will be meaningful for most of the members. We are looking forward to seeing you.
IT Meister Leader Development Program, in the field of manufacturing, started last year. Recruiting of students in 2019 will start on April 3, 2019 at 13:00 on the web pages of IT Coordinator Association （ITコーディネータ協会） .
See the IT Coordinator Association web pages for detailed guidance about the recruitment.
Starting with joint seminars with the IIC (Industrial Internet Consortium) , IVI is promoting various “expansion” this year. The business scenario WG, which is the fourth round, and the newly started advanced study group are gradually starting up, and attention to IVI is increasing. Please participate actively as a “concrete” forum for manufacturing IoT .
The symposium -Spring- is coming soon. We have received many applications for the symposium with strong expectations to IVI. There are some sessions that are closed for new applications on the second day, and there are still remained applications for other sessions. Participation only on the first day or on the second day are acceptable.
The highlights of the symposium and recent topics are written on the IVI Newsletter.
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.
IVI and Alliance of Industrial Internet (AII), which was an IoT promotion organization in Chinese industries, signed MOU, which was an agreement to work together in promoting industrial IoT (IIoT) ( MoU ) in Beijing on February 21, 2019.
For more information, see “IVI and Alliance of Industrial Internet (AII ) in China signed MOU.”
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.
This is guidance to IVI Open Symposium 2019 -Spring- for those who are considering participations to the symposium.
If you join IVI by the end of February, the symposium participation fee is free, according to the number of memberships.
I hope you plan to join the symposium as well.
