IES Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering Technical Committee (EECETC) and Singapore Polytechnic proudly present: "Building an IoT Project". [In Singapore, Internet-of-Things (IoT) technologies are set to play a key role in the city-state's digitalization push and Smart Nation plan. IoT refers to a network of Internet-connected physical objects, vehicles, buildings and other items embedded with sensors, electronics, and software. These objects are able to collect data without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. Examples of objects that can fall into the scope of IoT include connected security systems, thermostats, cars, electronic appliances, vending machines and more. Businesses and individuals can leverage IoT applications to automate tasks, such as notify authorities when a fire extinguisher in a building is blocked, or automatically adjust a room's AC.]

1.Included in this talk are pointers, which have come to my mind based on my years experience and involvement in contracts of construction projects in Singapore and Malaysia. It is not my intention to discuss everything and every issue that one may come across in contracting of construction projects. Pointers given confine only to those issues and things that some practitioners seem to have overlooked, ignored or have not given due regard and attention to. Many of these issues and things are so simple and obvious and yet appear not to have caught the attention of some practitioners of the construction industry. It is not denied that more pointers could have been included. I have not done so because, I take cognisance of the fact that ways to contract construction projects are very much influenced and controlled by human behaviours, how the human mind works, and business practices of contracting parties, all of these are again dependent very much on contracting parties cultural background, business policy as well as strategy, traditional modus operandi, and the era circumstances and environment the contract is performed. Furthermore, a human mind could work in such a way that it could be beyond the imagination of ordinary people. I am an ordinary person. Giving due regard to the aforesaid, there could be no end to the list of pointers. Hence, I have therefore decided that pointers I will be discussing should confine to those related to only common issues and matters. Some pointers given herein may appear to be repetitions. It is really not so because, the issues and matters involved are somewhat related but different.2.It should also be noted that many pointers given herein involve not just one member of the project team [PT] (comprising the contracting parties, project professional consultant and the contract administrator) but all of them.3.It should be noted further that all opinions stated in these notes are mine, and NOT those of the organiser of this course, or any of his affiliated organisations.

IES Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering Technical Committee (EECETC) and Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) proudly present: "Efficient Development for Robust Systems Using Virtual Prototypes and Multi-Level Processors Models".

Robustness and reliability of Integrated Circuits (ICs) is essential for many important applications of ICs such as automotive or industrial control. At the same time, pressures on time to market and cost keep increasing. System-level design methodologies are therefore increasingly being utilized. Virtual Prototypes are valuable for fast system simulation, also allowing for concurrent development of hardware (HW) and Firmware / Software (FW/SW). Fault injection is an essential technique to verify integrated systems.In this Talk, Professor Dr.-Ing. Ulf Schlichtmann will describe the basic concept of Virtual Prototypes. Professor Schlichtmann will discuss how multi-level processor models enable an efficient combination of accuracy and performance in fault injection. Fault injection can also be extended to FW/SW in addition to HW. Cross-layer techniques are valuable in evaluating the robustness of complex integrated systems.The research described in this talk has mostly been developed in the context of large-scale public funded research projects in Germany, related to both industry 4.0 and automotive industry.

Development projects are increasingly demanding as the clients becomes more sophisticated and requires their project to be built with better productivity and sustainability. At the same time, over the years there has being a gradual accumulation of practical experience around the world on specific methods of construction like prefabricated-prefinished volumetric construction (PPVC) and materials like self-compacting concrete (SCC) and cross laminated timber (CLT).

2 DAYS COURSE:This intensive course comprising lectures and case studies will enable participants to acquire sound technical knowledge of site risk management and appreciate how the construction insurance coverage is triggered. Technical aspects of the physical site work such as design and codes of practice will be addressed in relation to issues of dealing with the Contractor's All Risk (C.A.R) policy aspects during this session. Risk management on project sites will also be given adequate attention as these are essential to meet the policy conditions and clauses. Active learning concepts will be used to share the above subject matter with the participants.

Ever since the Workplace Safety and Health Act was enacted in Singapore in 2006, the safety scene in Singapore has been revolutionized.Starting with the introduction of mandatory risk management for the three hazardous industries namely,construction, manufacturing, and shipyards, the requirement was extended to six other sectors including medical facilities and eating places in 2008, and in September 2011 it covered all workplaces in Singapore.The Code of Practice for Risk Management was introduced in 2011, and revised in 2012. A further revision is under way and will be released shortly.While many industries have caught on to the new approach to reducing accidents and improving safety at the workplace through risk management, confusion persists in certain quarters on the scope of risk management, and the methodology for proper risk assessment and control. To guide the practitioners and broaden the coverage of the Act to all sectors, the course aims to review the procedures and recent changes to the Code of Practice.Apart from reviewing and emphasizing the previous guidelines mainly focusing on small and medium enterprises,the new Code expands the application to large enterprises, and suggests the numerical 5 by 5 risk matrix as a viable option, the most recent changes pertaining to the impact and assessment of human factors.The course will cover relevant portions of SS 506: Part 2: 2009, Singapore Standard on Occupational Safety and Health Management, pertaining to hazard identification, risk assessment and determining controls.Lecturer will bring into the course his extensive experience with risk management theory and practice.
