Cloud-based Situational Analysis for Factories providing
Real-time Reconfiguration Services
Optimising Performance of Production Systems and Smart Products
The advanced analytics and reconfiguration capabilities being developed in SAFIRE are based on mastering the big data challenges associated with manufacturing (sensor and process data), enterprise and smart product data. They allow manufacturers to address production system behaviour forecasting, and to establish optimisation methods that are integrated in the design and product chain. The SAFIRE solution will provide:
Both reactive and predictive reconfiguration for both production systems and smart products
Flexible run-time reconfiguration decisions during production rather than pre-planned at production planning time
Real-time reconfiguration decisions for optimisation of performance and real-time production and product functions.
The project has delivered big data analytic capabilities that meet real-time requirements so that dynamic run-time reconfiguration decisions are made during production time rather than pre-planned at production-planning time.
