Lessons learned Comments They must not solely represent what is feasible from a technical point of view, but also reflect non-functional requirements such as regulations and business practices.
Requirements of modern production processes stress the need for greater agility and flexibility, for faster production cycles, increased productivity, less waste and more sustainable production. Human-machine interaction is put in the center, supporting the decision making process.
Investigation of advanced HMIs for direct interaction with real-world objects. Consideration of mobile user interfaces that allow accessing crucial immediate information everywhere in the factory. Consideration will also be given to data gathering from ultra low power IoT devices such as wireless sensors where data can then be aggregated and visualised at an appropriate HMI interface. Where possible provision for self-powering these IoT devices using energy harvesting will be taken into account in order to avoid battery replacement. Flexible and dynamic data-driven solutions that can be adapted to different environments and needs.
Interoperability for M2M & HMI in factory environments II
The COMPOSITION project contains a Digital Factory Model Component which offers representation of factory processes and resources in a common format based on well-known standards.
A Simulation and Forecasting Toolkit analyses the production processes and required resources in an integrated way and extracts forecasts for possible failures. Also forecasting is provided in supply chain and logistics, especially in fill level monitoring of bins and boosts the waste management and recycling processes. Sustainable manufacturing will be assisted by a Decision Support System. The Marketplace will enable dynamic integration with actors in the supply chain.
