Smart Manufacturing Learning System (990-SM10) 

A Practical Approach to Upskilling a Wide Range of Roles on Smart Manufacturing, IIoT and Industry 4.0 Capabilities

The Smart Manufacturing Learning System (990-SM10) was developed in partnership with Amatrol and CESMII – The Smart Manufacturing Institute, to answer the call for hands-on learning in Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 technologies. Combining hardware, industrial software products and solutions, and an in-depth exercises, this system has been designed to educate learners at all levels of expertise, from the novice ‘Citizen OT-IT Technologist’ to the expert architect and implementer of smart manufacturing systems.

This system covers smart manufacturing techniques and technologies, starting with the most basic and continuing to the advanced. The 990-SM10 uses wired and wireless sensors, OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) and MQ Telemetry Transport (MQTT), a PLC, several types of edge gateways, and a variety of on-premise and cloud-based infrastructure and applications that facilitate both OT and IT-centric use case development and training.

The 990-SM10 is an ideal training system for equipping individuals at all skill levels with the practical, hands-on skills they need to begin or advance their Smart Manufacturing journey, teaching them how to envision, develop, and sustain practical solutions using real world, best-in-class smart manufacturing capabilities and methodologies.

Develop real-world smart factory skills

The Smart Manufacturing Learning System (990-SM10) includes industrial components found in typical manufacturing operations, and that users can access to develop hands-on skills. In addition, there are several additional sensors – including the Wireless Temperature/Humidity Sensor and the Current Transformer Sensor – that can be used to monitor external, real-world components and systems. This system also allows for user-supplied remote sensors for additional types of measurements and curriculum customization.

Connect to industry software and monitor systems

Amatrol partnered with CESMII and their member organizations, including industrial suppliers Rockwell
Automation, Phoenix Contact and 5G Technologies USA Ltd. to implement their monitoring, connectivity and control solutions into this one-of-a-kind system. Users will practice with both the PLC and BorgConnect Hub and Node for different options to collect and monitor data for process control, machine monitoring, and energy optimization purposes using solutions that are practical to implement for any manufacturer. Users will also have the option to use PLC programming software for developing I/O control skills and the CESMII Smart Manufacturing Innovation Platform (SMIP) to practice information modeling, platform development, application configuration and analytics skills.
