In the institute, all the components of connected systems come together to optimize processes and enhance products.World-class faculty contribute to diverse fields that include the use of sensors, risk management through cybersecurity, the conversion of big data into knowledge-based systems, and changes in organizational culture that accompany connectivity. Through applications, researchers can account for a wide range of user behavior and goals. A key challenge will be integrating individual science, engineering and business models with multiple kinds of software so they are compatible and function on a global scale.
In manufacturing, there’s a shortage of skilled labor. So automation has to happen. And the smart way to automate is to look at the whole system rather than just replace individual jobs with a machine.
