Metrology for industry 4.0
Pathways to digital transformation
There are 256 institutes currently participating in the CIPM MRA, and many more laboratories and regulatory bodies that will be affected by digital transformation of the international quality infrastructure. The needs, expertise, and resources of these various participants will vary greatly; a few are advanced along their digitalisation pathway, while many more feel daunted by the task ahead. However, unlike other sweeping technological changes in metrology, digital systems are ubiquitous. Institutes in all economies are facing the challenge of designing and implementing innovative solutions that are fit for the needs of particular communities and compatible with the emerging global standards. This session is intended for participants still in the early stages of transformation, or with needs that differ substantially from more advanced technological economies. It is a forum to share experience about novel and innovative approaches to digital transformation.
Modeling metrology in software for digital transformation
Society relies on sophisticated measurement infrastructures that use behind-the-scenes experts to generate, communicate, interpret, and consume data. Information technology now presents the challenge and opportunity to transform these apparently transparent infrastructures for the digital economy. Ideally, computing systems would generate, communicate, and consume the data without human intervention up and down the traceability chain and broadly across all measurement disciplines.
Digitalization of Metrology in Pharma Industry
The pharmaceutical industry as a whole (including the rapid development of new vaccines) is heavily regulated and competitive at the
same time. The regulatory issues and its high risk products make it often the leader among manufacturing industries in adopting new technologies
which then bring new regulations.
Sensor Network Metrology
Sensor networks are becoming a standard approach in many applications, ranging from regulated areas such as energy, water, gas and heat consumption (Legal Metrology) to low-cost Internet of Things (IoT) for Industry 4.0 (Industrial Metrology), even multi-sensor secondary realizations (fundamental metrology) and other areas such as healthcare, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
Machine-readable Digital Calibration Certificates (DCC)
One of the first and highest priority step for the metrology community is recognized in the replacement of paper-based calibration certificates with their digital counterparts, Digital Calibration Certificates (DCCs). A DCC is not a simple digitalization of the paper-based certificate in the sense of an exact copy in electronic format like PDF or Word. DCCs provide the calibration data in fully machine-readable data structures in a way that a software can automatically read the data from a DCC without error-prone human transcription. DCCs potentially allowing automated and machine-aided approaches to be used throughout all parts of calibration and measurement processes are essential for many organisations on the road to full digital transformation. The adoption of DCCs will thus lead to increased efficiency within those processes.
