Purpose and goal
The purpose is to demonstrate how a digital infrastructure can support smart manufacturing in Scania´s pedal factory by creating a digital twin, based on existing IT applications for development and planning, of the production system. The main challenge addressed is the coordination of data through standard APIs between various IT systems used in the development, planning and manufacturing phases. Further, to design smart use cases and applications which clearly illustrate the possibilities enabled by integrated information and to reach a wide number of people and organizations.
Expected results and effects
The impact goal is an increased industrial insight in the importance and potential of digital infrastructure and a better understanding of how this can be realized at your own company. The project will contribute to the development of infrastructure principles with a resulting impact in the international academic community. In the long term, software providers will offer APIs to connect to the open infrastructure.
Planned approach and implementation
All 6 partners collaborate to realize the demonstrator: one OEM, two suppliers, two academic parts and one institute. The approach is to use the applications and competence of the partners to integrate the different vendor applications in Scania’s portfolio through a standard-based coordination hub and a decentralized CPS infrastructure by developing standardized APIs between the applications and the hub.
