In order to extend the usefulness of the published Testbeds in the Testbed Program of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), the Testbed Working Group has developed an initiative to interview the contributors of selected testbeds to showcase more insights about the testbed, including the lessons learned through the testbed development process. This initiative enables the IIC to share more insights and inspire more members to engage in the Testbed Program. This article highlights the Smart Factory Web Testbed. The information and insights described in the following article were captured through an interview conducted by Mr. Joseph Fontaine, Vice President of Testbed Programs at IIC, with Dr. Kym Watson, Principal Scientist and Deputy Head of Department Information Management and Production Control at Fraunhofer IOSB. Kym is an active member in the IIC where he has been serving as co-lead of the Smart Factory Web Testbed and is a key contributor to the Testbed Working Group. Kym co-chairs the IIC Distributed Data and Interoperability Management Task Group. In May 2018, Kym was recognized by his peers and bestowed the IIC Testbed Award for his leadership and contribution to the Smart Factory Web Testbed. His nomination indicated the importance of improving manufacturing order fulfillment and cited Kym’s technical expertise, support and advancement of the smart manufacturing activities within the IIC.
