Abstract: The Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0, is based on advanced manufacturing and engineering technologies such as massive digitization, big data analytics, advanced robotics, adaptive automation, additive manufacturing, modeling and simulation, artificial intelligence, and the nano-engineering of materials.  Under Industry 4.0, systems have access to large types and numbers of external devices and to enormous quantities of data analyzed with data analytics. Simulations embedded in surrogate models of the physical factory, allow to troubleshoot and optimize processes off line. The webinar will provide an overview of Industry 4.0 and present three case studies of analytic applications. Case study 1 is on monitoring the structure deformation of an airborne device using seven optical fiber brag strain sensors. Case 2 is based on a piston simulator with a challenge to optimize and Case 3 is about an online SPC system that provides monitoring, diagnostic, prognostic and prescriptive analytic capabilities. Three interactive quizzes will be conducted to encourage active participation and group discussion.
