3. CommitmentSeer

Project Title CommitmentSeer – semantic integration and planning of orders in the MARKET4.0

Sector Metal, Plastic, High-tech

Funding/budget 50 KEUR

Short project Summary

The main value proposition of CommitmentSeer is operational risk management for suppliers participating in the MARKET4.0 platform by semantic integration and planning of orders. Suppliers on the MARKET4.0 platform may compete over orders published by customers or receive orders in a peer-to-peer fashion from a single large customer. In the first case, a negotiation process exists during which supplier has limited time to decide about completion time and price. The decision process may be quite complex for the supplier because the only input information available is an existing production schedule of tasks implementing previous orders. In the second case, the large enterprise would like to manage risks associated with potential disturbances in the supplier’s operation. In both cases, there is a need for a plan that optimally and automatically schedules incoming MARKET4.0 orders together with orders in the existing schedule supporting an interactive what-if analysis. CommitmentSeer empowers suppliers to make estimates and commitments based on the actual factory production re-planned to include new as well as existing production orders leveraging ontology-driven architecture using semantics for dynamic semantic integration of incoming orders, existing orders, available production resources and production constraints.

4. Data2Profile

Project Title A Multi-Sided Business Platform for Plug and Produce Industrial Product Service Systems – Sub-Project Data2Profile

Sector Metal processing

Funding/budget 50 KEUR

Short project Summary

Usually, a marketplace is sharing information related to the static characteristics of an industrial product (a machine), like type of material to be processed, average consumption of energy etc. All this information is required in order to understand what a machine can perform. However, for buying a machine in a marketplace, there is a need to know the details about “how” a machine is working, i.e. its performance during the operation. For example, it would be interesting to know how is energy consumed (over the entire period, and not only the average value) when processing some specific metal types. In that way, it would be possible not only to understand the energy consumption (like, is it high at the beginning of the process and decreases later during the process), but also to detect some anomalies (outliers) in the consumption. 

Main goal of this proposal is to provide such a service (TRL7) in the form of a MARKET4.0 app and to demonstrate its performance and added value in the metal processing domain.  The service will generate a so called “performance profiling” of the machine capability based on the data recorded in the actual operations. The basis will be Netico data analytics framework.
