Shanghai Minhang Economic&Technological Developement Zone
Shanghai Minhang Economic&Technological Developement Zone
In 2012, the Shanghai Minhang ETDZ’s gross industrial output value increased 3.1% to RMB 46.63 billion. The sales revenue in the zone was RMB 48.66 billion, up 9.33% year on year. Major investors include GE, ABB, Michelin, Siemens, Fuji Xerox, Yili, Pepsi, Coca- Cola, Johnson & Johnson, and Schneider. Huntsman, the world’s leading special-chemical manufacturer in the world, entered the zone in 1996. It invested US$10 million to build the largest mixing plant in Asia within the zone in the same year. In 2008, it set up its third global research and development center in Minhang ETDZ to provide state-of-the-art technologies and services to customers in the Asia Pacific region.
Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC)
Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC)
The Industrial Internet Consortium was founded in March 2014 to bring together the organizations and technologies necessary to accelerate the growth of the Industrial Internet by identifying, assembling and promoting best practices. Membership includes small and large technology innovators, vertical market leaders, researchers, universities and government organizations.Industrial Internet Consortium Working Groups coordinate and establish the priorities and enabling technologies of the Industrial Internet in order to accelerate market adoption and drive down the barriers to entry. There are currently 19 Working Groups and teams, broken into 7 broad areas: • Business Strategy and Solution Lifecycle• Legal• Marketing• Membership• Security• Technology• TestbedsThese groups are comprised of Industrial Internet Consortium member company representatives. Member companies can assign an unlimited number of individuals to the Working Groups, which follows the one vote, one company rule.Testbeds are a major focus and activity of the Industrial Internet Consortium and its members. The Testbed Working Group accelerates the creation of testbeds for the Industrial Internet and serves as the advisory body for testbed proposal activities for our members. It is the centralized group which collects testbed ideas from our member companies and provides the members with systematic yet flexible guidance for new testbed proposals. Our testbeds are where the innovation and opportunities of the Industrial Internet – new technologies, new applications, new products, new services, new processes – can be initiated, thought through, and rigorously tested to ascertain their usefulness and viability before coming to market. Learn more about testbeds in general and specific testbeds below.
Object Management Group (OMG)
Object Management Group (OMG)
Object Management Group (OMG) is international, open membership, not-for-profit technology standards consortium. OMG standards are driven by vendors, end-users, academic institutions and government agencies. OMG Task Forces develop enterprise integration standards for a wide range of technologies and an even wider range of industries. OMG’s modeling standards, including the Unified Modeling Language® (UML®) and Model Driven Architecture® (MDA®), enable powerful visual design, execution and maintenance of software and other processes. OMG also hosts organizations such as the user-driven information-sharing Cloud Standards Customer Council™ (CSCC™) and the IT industry software quality standardization group, the Consortium for IT Software Quality™ (CISQ™). OMG also manages the Industrial Internet Consortium, the public-private partnership that was formed in 2014 with AT&T, Cisco, GE, IBM, and Intel to forward the development, adoption, and innovation of the Industrial IoT.Our members include hundreds of organizations including software end-users in over two dozen vertical markets (from finance to healthcare and automotive to insurance) and virtually every large organization in the technology industry. OMG’s one organization- one vote policy ensures that every member organization- whether large or small- has an effective voice in our voting process. At OMG, specification adoption is the starting point rather than the end of the process. Our “No Shelf-ware” policy bars all proposed specifications that do not have an implementation plan from being adopted by OMG. This guarantees that all OMG specifications are immediately useable. Furthermore, we do not just focus on the specification itself - we focus on the whole product: with corresponding seminars, workshops, certification, books and more! OMG hosts four technical meetings throughout the year. These meetings give OMG members and interested nonmembers the opportunity to collaborate in a centralized location, learn about technology standards products and processes at tutorials, and attend special information day events on current trending hot topics. While technical meetings provide a centralized location for Task Forces and Working Groups to work together, they are merely checkpoints with the bulk of the work between members taking place electronically via email, teleconferences, and on wikis.In addition to technical meetings, OMG acts as event producer for conferences and workshops for its members around the world, including the Internationalization & Unicode Conference.OMG maintains liaison relationships with dozens of other organizations including ISO (which publishes many OMG standards without edits), Health Level Seven (HL7), and the Data Transparency Coalition.

High Speed Network Infrastructure
High Speed Network Infrastructure
The High-Speed Network Infrastructure testbed will introduce high-speed fiber optic lines to support Industrial Internet initiatives. The network will transfer data at 100 gigabits per second to support seamless machine-2-machines communications and data transfer across connected control systems, big infrastructure products, and manufacturing plants.The 100 gigabit capability extends to the wireless edge, allowing the testbed leaders to provide more data and analytical results to mobile users through advanced communication techniques. Industrial Internet Consortium founder, GE, is leading efforts by installing the networking lines at its Global Research Center. Cisco - also a founder of the Consortium - contributed its expertise to the project by providing the infrastructure needed to give the network its national reach.Industrial Internet Consortium members Accenture and Bayshore Networks are currently demonstrating the application of the High-Speed Network Infrastructure for power generation.Wave division multiplexing dominates the global optical network hardware market, generating over 81% of the overall revenue. The dominance is primarily driven by China’s investments towards the development of broadband infrastructure, with a focus on 100G fiber-optic internet connections.

Asset Efficiency
Asset Efficiency
Asset Efficiency refers to the process of analyzing the health of an asset. The health of an asset in itself relates to the asset's utility, its need to be replaced, and its need for maintenance. It can be broken down into three key components:1. Monitoring: Tracking the actual health and viability of the asset2. Diagnostic Analysis: Comparing new, real-time data to relevant data from the past in order to detect any anomalies.3. Prognostics: Given past data, algorithms are developed to determine the remaining useful life of an asset
