6:05 - 7:05pm - SonarQube and DevOps - Automated Build and Quality Checking with Gradle/Git/Jenkins/SonarQube - Bill Lyons

This presentation will show how to setup and run an automated build process using Gradle and Jenkins. If the build succeeds, a SonarQube automated quality dashboard will be built. The dashboard is used to analyze the source tree for bugs, poor code constructs, design flaws and code duplications. A working project will be demonstrated during the talk to explain setup, build and analysis using SonarQube.

7:20 - 8:20pm - Creating An Open Framework For Equipment Interoperability - Cliff Brandon

The Global Mining Standards Group (GMSG) wanted a framework for describing how equipment operates together in a mining environment that has equipment from multiple vendors and is rapidly becoming more automated. This talk follows the design and evolution of the framework.

A project was launched in October 2016 to identify how information is passed between mining equipment and between mining equipment and mine systems. The resulting open framework being built describes basic information flow at a level that respects current logical and physical machine and system constraints while avoiding prescriptive solutions and specific technologies. The ‘open’ framework is designed to allow mine operators, OEMS, and 3rd party designers to evaluate and construct solutions from a common understanding of equipment operation and interaction.

Even though this talk focuses on the mining environment, it may have broad applicability for understanding equipment interoperability.
