Industrial Data Services for Quality Control in Smart Manufacturing

Project description

Support and enhance the reliability of industrial data

The amount of industrial data coming from smart small-size and cost-effective interconnected factory devices is huge. The challenge now is how to guarantee data reliability with functions grouped into five basic capabilities around the data cycle: sensing, communication, computing infrastructure, storage, and analysis and optimisation. The EU-funded i4Q project will develop a Reliable Industrial Data Services (RIDS) solution based on the Internet of things (IoT). This is a complete suite based on 22 i4Q solutions that can manage a large amount of industrial data. For instance, the i4Q RIDS will include simulation and optimisation tools for manufacturing line-continuous process qualification, quality diagnosis, reconfiguration and certification for ensuring high manufacturing efficiency, leading to an integrated approach to zero-defect manufacturing.

Objective

i4Q Project aims to provide an IoT-based Reliable Industrial Data Services (RIDS), a complete suite consisting of 22 i4Q Solutions, able to manage the huge amount of industrial data coming from cheap cost-effective, smart, and small size interconnected factory devices for supporting manufacturing online monitoring and control. The i4Q Framework will guarantee data reliability with functions grouped into five basic capabilities around the data cycle: sensing, communication, computing infrastructure, storage, and analysis and optimization. i4Q RIDS will include simulation and optimization tools for manufacturing line continuous process qualification, quality diagnosis, reconfiguration and certification for ensuring high manufacturing efficiency, leading to an integrated approach to zero-defect manufacturing.
The i4Q RIDS will be demonstrated in 6 Uses Cases from relevant industrial sectors and representing two different levels of the manufacturing process: machine tool providers and production companies. i4Q pan-European consortium entails Industrial partners: WHIRLPOOL (White goods manufacturer), BIESSE (Wood industrial equipment), FACTOR (Metal machining), RIASTONE (Ceramic pressing), FARPLAS (Plastic injection) and FIDIA (Metal industrial equipment); Implementers: TIAG (Industrial Communication Protocols and Standards), CESI (Machine tools, Advanced Materials, Micro-technology) and AIMPLAS (Thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials); Technology Providers: IBM (Information Technologies Company), ENGINEERING (Software and Services Company), ITI (Information Technologies Institute), KNOWLEDGEBIZ (Information Systems Company), EXOS (Operations Consulting Company); R&D partners: CERTH (Research Institute), IKERLAN (Technological Centre), BIBA (Research Institute), UPV (University), TUBERLIN (University), UNINOVA (Research Institute); Specialist partners: FUNDINGBOX (Exploitation), INTEROP-VLAB (Dissemination), DIN (Standardisation), LIF (Legal).
