Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute's Andrew Dugenske discusses the challenges of implementing software systems in factories at the recent Yahoo! User Interface Conference.

With such names as Deloitte, Reuters, CBS Sports, the National Football League and Zillow.com on your roster, it’s easy to understand why so many attend the Yahoo! User Interface Conference and Workshops each year. This year, the event was held Nov. 5-7 in San Jose, Calif., and Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute’s Andrew Dugenske, Principal Engineer, represented Georgia Tech at this important industry event.

After providing a brief overview of Georgia Tech, GTMI and his Factory Information Systems lab, Dugenske explained that GTMI and FIS use web applications to help companies reduce cycle times and decrease costs in their manufacturing operations. “We use the YUI Javascript Framework in a variety of Georgia Tech projects,” he added. “A few years back, FIS benchmarked Javascript frameworks and YUI came up on top.”  

Dugenske had plenty of opportunity to present Georgia Tech’s capabilities at the event. He first spoke in the lightening demos portion of the conference and described the challenges of implementing software systems in factories and communicating with manufacturing equipment vs. “the very well-defined systems that most of the audience works with.” In addition, he worked with Yahoo! engineers to analyze some of the YUI code.

“As the Internet of Things makes its way further into the manufacturing field, it is critical to continue improving human-machine and machine-to-machine interaction,” said Dugenske. “This event provided a wonderful opportunity to explain how GTMI and FIS can assist manufacturers move in the right direction.”
