Periodic Reporting for period 1 - Industrial FW 4.0 (Internet 4.0 based Manufacturing Execution System for the SME sector)
Reporting period: 2015-12-01 to 2016-03-31
As a part of the project we have executed of a Market Study that has allowed us to select the sectors and national markets that are more attractive to us. The project has also allowed us to study the current competitors in the market. This is especially relevant since we have been able to detect some competitors that offer cloud MES and compare our proposal to their product, verifying our competitive advantages. We have studied the main regulations and standards that relate to our product. This is a critical issue since regulations like the 21CFR11 and the Annex 11 are a key element of our potential customers’ requirements while standards such as ISA-95 have implications in the interoperability of our system with business systems.
Finally, we have planned the execution of the Phase 2 project, preparing the work plan for the next step of the project and we have also planned the commercialization of the INDUSTRIAL FW 4.0 results.
• To complete the development of the INDUSTRIAL FW 4.0 prototype.
• To demonstrate our systems in the 3 targeted sectors with deployments that range from an almost plug&play deployment to more complex deployments that include the development of custom made Apps.
• To establish a solid network of integrators; especially in France and Germany, since we already have this network in Spain.
• To update our Business Plan according to the market evolution.
