Productive4.0 is an ambitious innovation project with partners from academia and industry, led by Infineon Technologies. As a brain pool, the framework is meant up the potential of Digital Industry and maintain a leadership position of these industries in Europe. “Industry4.0” promises smarter and more flexible production, better use of resources, new standards and improved work environment. Technology push for the industry in Europe Productive4.0 will empower industrial actors to develop and produce their products at a faster pace in a completely new way. The aim is to clear the path for technologies that enable integrating knowledge between different parts of a production’s systems – both within companies and between actors. Preparing the digital transformation New technologies and tailor-made solutions that allow efficient design and integration of the hardware and software of Internet of Things (IoT) devices are needed to link the digital with the real world. The project addresses various industrial domains with one complete approach, focusing on three main interdependent fields: digital production (DP), supply chain networks (SCN) and product lifecycle management (PLM). Productive4.0 has ten main objectives: - Furnish the Digital Industry with SoS-based architecture platforms - Set up a data analytics framework and a secure communication environment - Provide the industry with IoT-enabling components - Develop complex simulation models for DP, SCN and PLM - Create powerful systems for planning, virtualising and controlling - Foster relevant standards in the industry - Establish the Productive4.0 Framework as a cross domain platform for the Digital Industry - Provide for practical solutions and reference implementations for the Digital Industry - Implement reference product use cases for the different industrial domains - Establish an appropriate environment for the Productive4.0 brain pool partners One example use-case is the production of a shaver system, where a link between the electric shaver itself and the production facilities will be implemented. Several sensors will form a link between the process lines and the components, and data analytics will guide the development of future consumer products. The results will be available to different stakeholders. Another example is vehicle individualisation in a highly automated Automotive assembling process, in the logistics based on product lifecycle management systems. AUtonomous transport systems or smart logistics robots will make the whole production more flexible, reduce costs and allow for an improved and predictable quality. Productive4.0 is currently the biggest project within ECSEL JU and is the basis of the Industry4.E Lighthouse Initiative. It started in May 2017 and aims to promote the development of technologies that facilitate digitalising the industrial sector. Over a period of three years, 108 stakeholders from 19 European countries will work on hands-on solutions by means of Electronics and ICT across the entire value chain – up to TRL8.
