UPTIME Newsletter - March 2021 edition
Welcome to the 8th edition of the UPTIME Newsletter.
The UPTIME project has officially ended in February 2021. After 3,5 years of research and development, the UPTIME Platform is ready now for the market. The UPTIME consortium has defined a concrete go-to-market strategy to optimize the impact of the UPTIME Platform on the market and maximize its chances of success. The consortium feels this is the right time to launch a new solution for predictive maintenance with all of the advanced features the UPTIME Platform and its substituent components offer.
UPTIME proposes a differentiating value proposition, and its business model offers enough flexibility to reach a wide range of companies of different size and type. The market-oriented website – www.uptime-predictive-maintenance.com – with clear key messages and its demo-space is a good tool to get new leads and will be further built upon and utilized going forward in the exploitation activities. An adoption methodology for UPTIME deployment has been also created according to the successful deployment in the three business cases and is introduced in this Newsletter.
The consortium plans to drive forward the convergence of the UPTIME Platform with Industry 4.0 standards and beyond that, to address the issues that are beginning to be championed under the banner of Industry 5.0.
A strong foundation has been laid for the convergence with Industry 4.0 in the full compliance of the UPTIME Platform with the RAMI 4.0 reference architecture and addressing Asset Administration Shell (AAS) interoperability. The next step is to realise the AAS interface more fully and establish the UPTIME Platform as a Digital Twin for asset maintenance.
Events such as the 2nd UPTIME showcase event will be repeated since they proved extremely helpful in overcoming constraints imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, however a live and in-person event will be organized as soon as possible in the post-project commercial phase. As a first step, UPTIME will be hosted by BIBA at Digital Hannover Messe event, which will take place from 12 – 16 April 2021. We’d like to take this opportunity to invite you to join us virtually at this event. You can register your participation free of charge using the ticket code “CVJVm” through this link.
On a wider scale, the cooperation begun in the framework of the ForeSee cluster will also be maintained by the UPTIME partners, to contribute in the implementation of its structured Predictive Maintenance roadmap and to have a greater impact on standards and production of commons for European industry, which will shape the access to the new market of maintenance, which is key for the industry of the future.
