Architecture challenges? Transform data collection process and data to self-decision making architecture that is scalable and technically interface compatible ? Develop a simple solution to a complex problems for overall system architecture and design


How? Asking right questions? Think simple like input, output, and processor

Benefits :

Benefits Reduce cost by uniform resources, training and technology development needs Reduce waste of natural resources


Conclusion No blame game Ask right questions Do our part
