"Integrated Materials Management – Moments of Truth within the Capital Project Supply Network" will focus on the difficulties organizations in the capital project industry, such as oil and gas, face with managing materials, equipment and skilled resources across complex projects utilizing multiple contractors. Speakers will provide insight into the critical systemic causes of these difficulties and highlight new and proven methods needed to gain greater visibility, predictability and control.

Attendees will hear from the following subject-matter experts from the oil and gas industry:

  • Martin Swaine, 4D Program Manager at Shell International and Fiatech AIM Project Lead
  • Reg Hunter, Senior Program Director at Fiatech
  • Rich Becks, General Manager of Industry Solutions at E2open
  • Pawan Joshi, Vice President of Strategy at E2open

Key topics covered during this webcast include:

  • Why materials and resource coordination across large capital project networks has become so challenging
  • How cloud-based information technologies can enable end-to-end visibility and control
  • Why enterprise systems are particularly difficult to extend to partners

In addition, the webcast will introduce Fiatech's new Integrated Materials Management (IMM) flagship initiative, which addresses the challenges of effectively monitoring and controlling capital project performance across all stakeholders and lifecycles as the scale and globalization of capital projects continues to increase. This IMM-focused discussion aims to facilitate industry consensus, establish objectives and cultivate deployable solutions.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
