Summary Sentence:

A workshop was held to engage faculty in coordinating Georgia Tech’s IoTfM activities to achieve the best results for the Institute.

Full Summary:

The workshop  helped to answer two primary questions: What does Georgia Tech think about IoTfM and what does Georgia Tech do in IoTfM? This was achieved by receiving the ‘Voice of Georgia Tech’ from the participants after challenges, opportunities and motivations were presented to seed the discussions.

There is high interest in IoTfM activities by a diverse and talented group of Georgia Tech faculty. With the appropriate resources, the Institute could become the recognized leader in this discipline, according to participants of a workshop held on May 2 at the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute (GTMI).

Academic and research faculty across the university gathered that day to focus on how to leverage IoTfM knowledge and expertise with the needs of business and industry to identify paths to funded research initiatives and research themes. Participants noted that companies that fund IoTfM research usually want case studies and return-on-investment data from which to base decisions about projects to fund. There was also discussion about a possible IoTfM showcase and demonstration facility to undertake research and to show results to current and potential sponsors.

According to Andrew Dugenske, principal engineer and director of the Factory Information Systems Center at GTMI, the discussion will definitely continue. Dugenske, who hosted the workshop, said that he and participants of the workshop now have plans to submit an NSF/UCRC proposal of this topic. He will also share information from the meeting with the GTMI External Advisory Board.
