Pilot plans on the Shopfloors and preparation actions I

Summary

The present document is a deliverable of the COMPOSITION project,that is funded by the European Commission’sHorizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme, reporting the results of the activities carried out by WP8.The aim of COMPOSITION is to create a digital automation framework (the COMPOSITION IIMS) that optimizes the manufacturing processes by exploiting existing data, knowledge and tools to increase productivity and dynamically adapt to changing market requirements. This isachieved through the connection of supply chain(inter-factory)data and services among enterprises and the connection of value chain(intra-factory)data within a factory, so that it can meaningfully support decision-making.More specifically the developments of COMPOSITION will be demonstrated and validated to five multi-sided pilots. The first pilot, from the biomedical device domain(Boston Scientific Ltd -BSL), focuses on the integrated information management system in a multisided manufacturing process(intra-factory). The second pilot from the lift manufacturing industry (KLEEMANN-KLE) concentrates on intra-factory procedures and on interaction between different companies using the COMPOSITION ecosystem with the agent-based marketplace for collaboration(inter-factory).The third pilot from the recycling industry (ELDIA) focuses on the reduction of the amount of waste that is disposed at the Sanitary Landfill(inter-factory). The fourth pilot from the industrial manufacturing software domain (ATLANTIS -ATL),focuses on the supply chain/Inter-factory cases and will deploy COMPOSITION for software upgrade and deployment.The last pilot from theIT and Telecommunications sector (NEXTWORKS –NXW),serves as a technology and service provider in both the value chain and the supply chain use cases, specifically for factory premises and production line monitoring and management.This deliverableprovides a methodology for planning and preparing the pilots’ sites for the use case implementation.The methodology is comprised of four stages: 1.Factory Acceptance Testing, 2. Site Acceptance Testing, 3.Deployment and Commissioning and 4. Operation and Maintenance. COMPOSITION components, their usage and implementation per use case are described in detail.Finally, a concluding overall framework for pilot plans on the shopfloorand preparation actionsis presented.This framework is common forall pilots and combines the developed components with each use case. Deliverable “D8.1 Pilot plans on the Shopfloor and preparation actions I”documents the actions that should be taken for preparing the shopfloorbefore the deployment of COMPOSITION tools. D8.1 will be further developed through an iterative approach, and results of it will be presented in the second version of D8.1 i.e. “D8.2 Pilot plans on the Shopfloorand preparation actions II”(M30).
