Presenting the 21st Annual ARC Industry Forum
Industry in Transition: Realizing the Digital Enterprise

February 6-9, 2017 - Orlando, Florida

ARC Industry Forum Orlando 2017

Digital Enterprise Comes into Sharper Focus at 2017 ARC Industry Forum

The 2017 ARC Industry Forum represented the 21st edition of this annual event.  The Orlando Forum seems to attract more and more quality speakers, participants, and sponsors every year.  It provides an opportunity for thought leaders from technology end user organizations, technology suppliers, academia, and government to convene to discuss emerging technologies and trends and share use cases.  This event also often serves as a catalyst for important industrywide initiatives.  This year was no exception.

Following the Sunday night, pre-Forum Super Bowl Party that has become a tradition in recent years (and what a Super Bowl it was!); a full day of interactive workshops, press announcements, and a welcome reception on Monday; the 21st Annual ARC Industry Forum officially kicked off with a series of thought-provoking keynotes at the Tuesday morning general session.  The three General Session keynotes covered industrial cybersecurity, the Open Process Automation initiative, and the digital enterprise, respectively.  Not surprisingly, many common themes resonated through all three presentations, not the least of which is that while connectivity is good, it must be implemented with rigorous, ongoing attention to cybersecurity.  Following the General Session, the close to 800 registered Forum participants had the opportunity to attend topical sessions in five dedicated tracks.  These ranged from automation and cybersecurity, to IIoT-enabled asset management, digital platforms, and analytics.

Cybersecurity:  “Marty Unplugged,” or “Find That Red Button”

Marty EdwardsMarty Edwards, the lead-off keynote speaker at this year’s Forum, is the Director of Industrial Control Systems, Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT) at the US Department of Homeland Security.  Significantly, Mr. Edwards brings a strong industrial control system background to this important position, both at Idaho National Labs and in the private sector.

Mr. Edwards began his talk by throwing out the hypothetical question: “We’re all going digital, but what is digital?”  He went on to explain, that the definition of “digital” has changed since the old “3 to 15 psi days.”  This referred to the pre-digital (and, in fact, largely pre-electronic) days when field devices in industrial plants often communicated their measurements to dedicated, single-loop pneumatic controllers via compressed air signals.

Back then, controllers weren’t connected to a network and “digital” literally referred to bits and bytes.  Today, in contrast, “digital” often means “connected,” he explained.  He provided one thought-provoking example of how connectivity has ramifications across multiple dimensions.  In this case, a police department in the US had used data transmitted from a suspected arsonist’s pacemaker to monitor the suspect.

“Now that we’re connected, we have to start talking about security – because connectivity and security often don’t work well together, and an ‘air gap’ approach to security is no longer enough.  Ten years ago, we would have been preaching that you absolutely should not use IT security in a control system, because you’d be likely to break it.  Today, there’s great potential for IoT-type security, many instances of which contain security from the ground up and products that are hardened ‘right out of the box.’”

“We still see companies that don’t perform due diligence, with the number one challenge being lack of adequate perimeter security.”  Even worse, security breaches are often not adequately logged, so when management asks “what happened?” the answers are not readily available.  “At the end of the day, a determined nation state could breach any system.”

This led Mr. Edwards into a discussion on the concept of “cyber-informed engineering.”  The concept is simple: “In your facility, find the most critical of functions.   Once you’ve identified that basic function, take it offline.” 

He explained that in years gone by every industrial facility had big, red dedicated buttons mounted in strategic areas around the plant that employees could use to shut down a critical function in case of a mishap.  Today, however, these “red button” types of safety shutdown functions have been digitized and connected.  “Those one or two critical functions need to be taken offline by creating specialty circuits for them.  It’s important to apply the correct level of technology – but no more than is really needed.”

Mr. Edwards summarized his presentation in this manner: “It’s important to perform a proper risk assessment to identify the one or two critical functions in the plant,” and then apply particular protection to those functions via separation, redundancy, etc.  “In other words, find that red button!”  With that in mind, “Marty Unplugged,” is what he told us he really would like to call his talk.

Open Process Automation: “Looking Outside the Box”

For the second consecutive year, Don Bartusiak, Steve Bitar, and other ExxonMobil executives participated in the ARC Industry Forum to present and garner additional support for the important Open Process Automation initiative that ExxonMobil has initiated.  Mr. Bartusiak, Chief Process Control Engineer at ExxonMobil Research and Engineering, began his keynote presentation at this year’s Forum by outlining the business problem:

  1. With many of the company’s large installed base of distributed control systems (DCS) at or rapidly approaching obsolescence, there’s a driving need to replace those systems.
  2. It’s critical to lower both the replacement and ongoing lifecycle costs for DCSs and derive more value from automation investments in general.
  3. Current available DCSs do not solve the above problem and the root causes are both technical and commercial.

Don BartusiakAccording to Mr. Bartusiak, “Our goal is a standards-based, open, secure, and interoperable system.  We need security that is built into the system and not bolted on.  And we’d like to see commercial systems by 2021.”  He then went on to explain the background.

“In 2010, when we began the R&D for replacing the fleet of control systems in our downstream refineries and chemical plants, we tried to look outside the box and found good solutions in the aviation, telecommunications, and IT worlds.”

In avionics, the work of Future Airborne Capability Environment consortium (FACE) has resulted in open modular systems.  The telecommunications industry has developed cell tower-based systems with network function virtualization and software-defined networking.  And the IT world has developed cybersecurity innovations that could be applied to OT.  Bartusiak also mentioned that the emergence of IIoT, wireless, and cloud services drive expectations for change.

In 2014, Bartusiak’s team developed the functional characteristics needed to engage industry.  In 2015, the company contracted Lockheed Martin to define the requirements and integrate the prototype system.  In 2016, ExxonMobil and The Open Group formed the Open Process Automation Forum to develop standards.  The vision developed by this largely end user-driven group includes the following system characteristics:

  • Best-in-class components; with leading-edge performance
  • Conformant components integrated for systems that are fit-for-purpose for end user’s needs
  • Adaptive intrinsic security
  • Commercially available and applicable across multiple industry sectors
  • Protect suppliers’ intellectual property
  • Portable end user software
  • Simplify replacements; reduce lifecycle cost
  • Expanded markets for suppliers and system integrators for components and services
  • Innovation and value creation

Bartusiak explained that the Open Process Automation Forum of The Open Group “opened for business” in September 2016 and held its inaugural meeting for member companies on November 16 and 17.  As of January 20, 2017, there were 20 member organizations. These include end user companies spanning a variety of industries:  Aramco Services, BASF, Chevron, Dow Chemical, ExxonMobil, Koch Industries, Merck, Praxair, and Shell.  DCS vendors include ABB, Emerson, Honeywell, Schneider Electric, and Yokogawa.  “DCS-adjacent” companies include GE, netControl, and Siemens.  A number of well-known hardware, software, and SI companies are also members.

He pointed out that four Open Group members were participating in this ARC Forum and gave credit to the various trade journals as well as to ARC Advisory Group for their respective support.  Based on the interest we heard expressed in Orlando this week, ARC believes that it is likely that at least one or two additional large end user organizations will soon sign up as members.

Next, Bartusiak discussed the likely impact on traditional automation suppliers.  For obvious reasons related to their installed bases, suppliers have been closely monitoring the progress of the initiative, which is also likely to seriously disrupt their supply chains.  He believes that, despite some obvious challenges for suppliers, those that can adapt to the new environment will ultimately benefit from reduced systematic costs, increased margins by focusing on differentiating advantages, and revenue growth from the expanded market size and opportunities.

“In one respect, we’re almost at the same point right now where we were when each railroad company used its own rail gauge,” so trains from one company couldn’t operate on another company’s rail system.

“We’re on a 20-year technology refresh era with DCS – we just have to change.  Based on the lessons from our history in standardization activities, end users need to get actively involved here and “help make the sausages,” concluded Bartusiak.

Andy Chatha:  Let’s Work Together and “Go Digital”

Andy Chatha, ARC Advisory Group’s president and founder, once again focused his own keynote address on where he believes industry is headed.  Always the visionary, Andy focused on the need for open systems, digital transformation, and how cybersecurity is key for both.

Andy ChathaAccording to Andy, “Going digital can make companies more agile and responsive.  Companies look to increase their revenue and make smarter products that can provide both new opportunities to increase their services business, and opportunities for technology users to improve their operating performance and agility.  But of course, how you go digital will depend on your particular company and business processes.”

“We need open systems all the way to the top; it’s critical for all your systems to work together, but to do so in a manner that does not increase cybersecurity risk.  The latest move in analytics is to start embedding analytics into your systems.”  Andy believes that this offers many opportunities to improve operating performance and return on assets.  “Soon, companies will start adding applications on top of their platforms, as well as start turning their applications into platforms.  

The most important point is how to get the many different platforms and applications available today to work together and be interoperable.  “Make sure that the platforms you bring into your plants work together.”  He then discussed some of the many potential opportunities that digitization could bring across a variety of process, discrete, and utility industries. 

Next, Andy discussed ARC’s expanded Asset Performance Management (APM) Maturity Model, which now includes a fifth level of maturity -- prescriptive maintenance -- made possible through IIoT-enabled connectivity, advanced analytics and machine learning, and advanced modeling techniques.  With prescriptive APM, the model and knowledge base not only identify an issue, they provide specific guidance for how to best respond to that issue.

According to Andy, “The digital enterprise will be a game changer and it all starts with smarter machines and other connected assets.”  To this end, “Cloud makes it less expensive to connect sensors, devices, and systems to enable you to run more predictive/prescriptive analytics on appropriate assets and selectively share plant data with suppliers.”  Andy believes that this journey will take years; but will be worth it. 

The old paradigm, “Make your product and they will come,” no longer applies.  Increasingly, customers will demand products that are customized to their needs and preferences.  We need new blood and new companies to help us in this transformation.

“Change is hard, no one likes change.  But this is also an opportunity to leapfrog to the newer technology in our plants.  However, in the end, it always comes down to execution.”
