Objective

The objective of the project is to demonstrate and scale a multi-site digitally connected production ecosystem with resilient, data-driven and sustainable value creation to strengthen European industry. The value creation speed and flexibility through the implementation of the technical architecture of the data ecosystem in terms of GAIA-X will be demonstrated. The unique selling point of the approach is the creation of a European knowledge base as a platform for long-term secure and sovereign holistic data storage in the cloud.

Procedure

To connect machines to the platform, a vertical integration solution is created taking into account the interfaces between machines, tooling and clamping systems, edge devices, on-premise solutions and systems for business resource planning (Enterprise Resource Planning) and production control systems (Manufacturing Execution System). Developed intelligent data connectors are used for data aggregation and pre-processing to differentiate between smart data and big data.

The calamity-reducing effects and resilience will be tested by means of a stress test to evaluate data-driven production. At the end of the project, digital services will be available via GAIA-X that can control the self-orchestration of the data and compensate for and regulate disturbance variables. To exploit the results, the European knowledge database and the developed vertical integration solution will be made available to companies and research institutions, including the digital services.
