CyberFactory#1 fosters the optimisation and resilience of the Factory of the Future
15 September 2022 - To enable the Factory of the Future, optimisation must be reconciled with security. The growing integration of Information Technology (IT) into Operational Technology (OT) exposes manufacturing systems to a growing number and diversity of threats. The ITEA project CyberFactory#1 has designed, developed, integrated and demonstrated a set of key enabling capabilities to foster the optimisation and resilience of the Factory of the Future (FoF). The impact is expected to reach around €150M additional revenues for the project partners and 450 extra jobs by 2025. CyberFactory#1, a project born within Industry 4.0, has been recognised as a pioneer of Industry 5.0 for its contributions to a more sustainable, human-centric and resilient industry.
IMPACT has made healthcare more efficient, accurate and cost-effective
15 September 2022 - Healthcare faces many challenges, including improving patient outcome and working more cost-effectively, while the demand is growing, staff capacity is declining, and new clinical and technological developments succeed each other quickly. The ITEA project IMPACT has addressed several challenges by leveraging the power of data and building on the preceding award-winning ITEA projects MEDIATE and BENEFIT to move towards intelligence-based healthcare. Data analysis for clinical business intelligence has been accelerated, reducing the time needed for data analysis to less than five minutes, compared to the days or weeks it previously took. IMPACT will continue to impact society and further enhance patient experience, improve population health, reduce costs and improve the work life of healthcare providers.
OPTIMUM offers greater efficiency, safety and usability in future smart factories
15 September 2022 - In today’s factories, machines such as cranes are typically operated manually using heterogeneous hardware. These are usually not interoperable and diverse control environments are in use; static machine configurations also make evolution hard to achieve. The ITEA project OPTIMUM enables machines of different kinds and from different manufacturers to communicate with each other and their operators, improving the worker's and equipment's safety. OPTIMUM's innovative assistance functions will significantly reduce assembly times in semi-autonomous processes; an 18% reduction was already achieved during a Proof of Concept. Users of the software and applications developed in the OPTIMUM project will have safer and more flexible material handling processes.
PANORAMA supports the shift to open source
15 September 2022 - In the automotive domain, many similar control units are used, but different organisations often use heterogeneous functional domains, hardware and teams. This complicates collaboration, while this is very important as many stakeholders are involved. The ITEA project PANORAMA has created an open-source meta-model and framework that promotes collaboration on software and hardware development using heterogenous tools and practices and without losing control of one’s own data. Clear benefits can be seen in maintainability (with a time reduction from 57 to 12 days), reliability (A grade for code quality from the industry standard SonarQube) and efficiency (reduction of local set-up of the installation and integration of several tools from eight hours to 0.8 hours). Having already built up a large open-source community worldwide, the project has a strong foundation to continue reducing the costs and increasing the quality of software development both now and in the future.
