Workshop ‘The bridge between Information Technology and Operational Technology’

We follow the guidelines of the RIVM regarding the Coronavirus. During this workshop we will be safeguarding the 1,5 meter guideline. Therefore we only have limited seats for this workshop.

IT and OT will not stay separated forever… 

Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) both have a long and separate history. Both technologies have developed along separate paths, with different goals and operating in totally different ecosystems. The gap between these two key technologies means that manufacturers and chemical or manufacturing companies are hindered in having access to the information needed to work efficiently and effectively. Lack of the right information at the right time can lead to unreliable results and making the wrong decisions.

An integrated environment…

With the advent of Industrial Internet, smart machines, Internet of Things (IoT) and Advanced Analytics, manufacturers/companies are increasingly taking advantage of the benefits of bringing IT and OT together in an integrated smart environment. You can also benefit if you:

  • Want to use the benefits of Big Data;
  • Want to view the right information at the right time to make better decisions;
  • Want to optimize your business processes;
  • Want to work and produce faster, more efficiently, more sustainably and cheaper;
  • Want to reduce risks;
  • Want to realize shorter lead times for projects.

Workshop

Digitization, new developments and technologies immediately raise the question of what this means for your company, but also for you as a person. What choices do you have to make in order to stay ahead in your market in the future?

ICT Group is pleased to invite you to this unique workshop to network with experts from the sector, to engage in conversation with colleagues and to actively work on the most important steps to get IT and OT aligned. Participation is free of charge. We will start small. Keep it manageable and compact and start building on a solid foundation. Which specific pilot can you carry out? What challenges do we face? How can we tackle these challenges? What results can you achieve? What is the return on this pilot? And what is next …?

At the end of the morning you will have a business case for one proof of value, a concrete pilot. Something tangible that can be reached in 10 to 20 working days and that you can start the same day with. Take a look at the OrangeNXT (an ICT Group company) website to see how we can do that together with you.

Webinar | Model Based Testing and SafeScrum in a safety critical environment

This webinar will be in Dutch. Do you want to know more about the webinar or the subject? Please contact us. 

Webinar sessions: Managing complexity and software development efficiency with Model-Driven Development code generation
The complexity of software intensive systems is ever increasing. Model-Driven Design technologies and code generation have the potential to manage complexity and increase software development efficiency. Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) and Model-Based Testing (MBT) are methods to design software faster, cheaper and more efficiently. Based on the system requirements, you make an abstract model. This model serves as a common language for all stakeholders to improve comprehensibility and reduce system complexity. Tools then automatically generate the code for the system (MDE) or for the test (MBT). The result: more innovative products that you can bring to market faster. As one of the first software companies to specialize in these relatively new approaches to software design, ICT Group looks forward to assisting you by sharing our knowhow, expertise and experience. Please sign up for our webinars om June 25 and June 30‘ via Microsoft Teams at 10.00 a.m.

Model-Based Testing and SafeScrum in a safety-critical environment: Lessons learned from a Train Information System for ERTMS

The Dutch railroads are becoming even busier. The government and railroad companies have the ambition to improve the quality of the rail network. Introducing a new train security and management system – European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) – has to contribute to this. A long-term and complex project of enormous proportions.

ProRail Logistics has decided to use the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) for the development of the safety-critical ETIS (ERTMS Train Information System) product. Developing Safety-Critical Systems is regulated in terms of quality and safety. An example in the railroad domain is the Cenelec EN 50126-1 safety standard. From a security standpoint it is only natural that development is performed with traditional and proven methods. ProRail opts for a new approach in which the system is developed iteratively and possible problems in the project are brought forward as much as possible. And this is why they selected the solutions of InTraffic and Axini; an iterative approach in a safety environment, by using SafeScrum and Model-Based Testing.

How do you apply these techniques in a critical safety environment? ProRail, Axini and InTraffic explain how based on the ETIS product.

 

We would like to invite your for our “Model-Based Testing and SafeScrum in a safety-critical environment: Lessons learned from a Train Information System for ERTMS” via Microsoft Teams on June 30, 10.AM, host by Julien Schmaltz!

‘Model Driven Engineering: efficiently developing software in a complex environment, where are we now?’

Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) is a software development methodology which saves businesses a significant amount of time and money and enables them to streamline their operations. All parties can now work together within a single model which improves coordination between various stakeholders resulting in a more robust software solution with fewer bugs. Moreover, it reduces the time-to-market. MDE is perfect for businesses with a need for complex and error-proof software.

Abstract webinar | Part 1
Since the seventies design automation has been instrumental to cope with every growing complexity of electronic systems. Key is to automatically synthesize from an abstract specification, a design solution in terms of the (parameterized) components in a library called a platform. Over the years the level of aggregation of the components has increased from transistors in the seventies to embedded platforms and robots today. The first part of the webinar by Jeroen Voeten explains the key concepts in design automation and highlights a successful recent industrial innovation in the embedded control domain, that resulted in a big improvement of engineering efficiency and product quality. Taming the level of cyber-physical systems is our next endeavor; this talk presents the goals and recent research results.

The business case – Massachusetts General Hospital | Part 2
MDE is widely applicable and its use is not only limited to one industry, but can deliver strong benefits in e.g. in the Automotive, Life science, Industrial & Applied science sectors . For the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston we developed a workflow and data management system. When developing this system for radiation oncology, we experienced that the interaction between customer, domain expert and system engineer is crucial to prevent the introduction of unnecessary complexity. MDE helps increasing development efficiency by raising the level of abstraction. Domain-Specific Languages as an integral part of MDE support the description of different facets of the problem domain in a clear and concise way. This is crucial for effective code generation efforts. Thanks to these methods, we developed an efficient, accurate and easy to maintain workflow and data management system.

In the second part of the webinar Frank van der Kruijssen, will share his lessons learned. He will explain how he and his team have been able to reduce the complexity of this advanced system and why the use of Model-Driven engineering was beneficial for this project.

Monday May 18 – 10.00 a.m.
‘Securing OT remote access during Covid-19’

During this webinar we will look at challenges in OT cyber security because of the fact that we are forced to work remotely more. In collaboration with our cyber security partner Radiflow, we take you along in the important matters in making the “remote access” to your OT environment (ICS / SCADA) cyber-secure. The main topics of this session include:

* Organizational preparations that are required to successfully work remotely in an OT environment.

* The security processes that need to be implemented.

* Technical implications that your organization must take into account when personnel starts working remote in an OT environment

* How can we help you?

Let’s secure the future together!

The rapid digitization of the industry already required more targeted and focused changes in your organization.. To remain future proof, we must adapt to change and offer new solutions with regard to cyber security and remote access.  For example, the transformation to a digital company, in which cyber security must have an essential role.

We want to make the world (a little) safer every day, and we would like to do that together with you!

You can also join the webinar on May 14: ‘Covid-19: Opportunities and threats within Smart Industry.

‘Covid-19: Kansen en bedreigingen binnen Smart Industry’

We kijken naar zaken als: Het nieuwe “agile” werken, de mogelijkheden van mixed reality, hoe creëren wij een slimme en veilige anderhalve meter samenleving en welke stappen moeten we zetten om weer terug te kunnen naar “business as usual”. Denk daarbij aan de volgende onderwerpen:

*Hoe houdt u werknemers gezond en beschikbaar (remote werken, specifiek voor het OT domein).

* Wat zijn de (on)mogelijkheden binnen een fabriek in een tijd van crisis.

* Hoe kunnen we deze tijd gebruiken om digitalisering en performance een boost te geven om concurrentievoordeel te behalen.

* Hoe kunt u met een hololens een koppeling maken tussen de fysieke, digitale en virtuele wereld.

 

Let’s develop the future together!

De snelle digitalisering van de industrie vroeg al om gerichte veranderingen in uw organisatie. Door Covid-19 komt alles in een stroomversnelling. Om toekomstbestendig te blijven moeten we ons aanpassen aan veranderingen en nieuwe oplossingen bieden. Bijvoorbeeld de transformatie naar een digitaal bedrijf, waarbij u realtime kunt gaan zien wat er in de virtuele wereld gebeurt. Dat kan virtueel zijn als in ‘virtual reality’, zoals de wereld die we daar zien, die grafisch is, of via dashboards. Met special tooling kunnen we alle datapunten uit de OT-wereld ontsluiten.

Wij willen de wereld iedere dag (een beetje) slimmer maken, en dat doen we graag samen met u!

U kunt ook de webinar op 18 mei volgen: ‘Securing OT remote access during Covid-19’.

Smart Industry 

Smart Industry is all about automation and digitalisation, and it combines (production) processes with the Internet of Things in order to connect devices, machines, raw materials, other production resources, the supply chain and employees.
The result comprises new production methods, new business models and new industries. Smart Industry involves a wide range of smart innovations aimed at all elements of business management, including process structure, smart information systems, smart production methods and other areas.

Program 2019

Digitalisation is shaking up the world. Rapid digitalisation of the industry requires structural changes to organisations and companies. If we want to remain future-proof and retain a leading edge, we have to adjust continuously to changes in the market and to offer new solutions. In short, we have to become (a bit) smarter every day.

Why is investing in Smart Industry a must in order to increase your turnover, expand your customer base and strengthen your competitive position? How does the convergence of IT and OT offer opportunities for efficiency, reliability, accuracy, continuity and security? What is our current situation? And what is our future? What will your business look like in five years from now?

These changes and developments, which are occurring at an extremely rapid pace, are forcing you to think about issues such as: ‘What are the implications for my organisation?’ ‘What does this mean for me personally?’ but also ‘How do we make sure that we retain our leading edge and our top position, and how do we keep our knowledge actual and up-to-date?’

Which choices do you have to make to realise this radical but also crucial change towards Smart Industry while at the same time keeping up with a continuously changing environment? Complex questions with a different answer for each organisation and a unique answer for each individual. What do innovation and Smart Industry mean for you as a person and as an employee, professional or manager? How can employees and employers get on and keep each other on their toes in these volatile and dynamic times? How can we bring people, technologies and ideas together?
