Course Overview

This course aims to provide participants an introduction to ThingWorx Foundation as well as Kepware KEPServerEX, which is a widely used industrial IOT and connectivity platforms. The participants will learn the skills in connecting devices and sensors wirelessly to capture equipment performance data based on OPC UA protocol. With the knowledge gain on acquiring, storing and visualising the data with IOT dashboard developed, the participants will then have a chance to apply ThingWorx Analytics software in building the predictive models for anomaly detection in predictive maintenance and prescriptive analysis in advanced manufacturing. 

Application/Entry Requirement

Participants should have relevant working experiences in manufacturing sector.

Who Should Attend

Engineers, Technology Specialist
