Self-Adaptive Large Scale Demonstrator Design and Set-Up

Summary
In this task self-adaptive and reconfigurable characteristics will be demonstrated at a systems level for a large scale system in a relevant industrial environment. The demonstrator will deploy the technologies developed in WP2, WP3, WP4 and WP5 and provide information for validation and verification purposes. The demonstrator will comprise the developments generated in WP2 by including standard interfaces to enable a ?plug and produce? approach and by being integrated to the industrial manufacturing middleware to enable connectivity to manufacturing operations and business systems such as MES and ERP for planning and scheduling and general operations control. Integration to the middle layer will be facilitated by the software interfaces developed in WP3. Self-adaptability and quick reconfigurability will be enable by methods and tools also developed in WP3 and WP4. Key to this task, as a differentiating factor, is the full deployment of tools provided by WP4 to support planning, scheduling and operational performance in general. The methodologies and strategies defined in WP5 will be used to support the migration of existing systems to a self-adaptive and reconfigurable approach. At the same time, this task is expected to provide meaningful feedback to WP5 for the refinement of these methodologies and strategies.
The process of de-risking the technologies developed during the project will culminate with this demonstrator in in time to have maximum impact on the industrial use cases to be developed in in WP7, WP8, WP9 and WP10.
