"EFACTORY - EPFP"
EFPF - EUROPEAN CONNECTED FACTORY PLATFORM FOR AGILE MANUFACTURING
The eFactory project realizes a federated smart factory ecosystem by primarily interlinking 4 smart factory platforms, from the FoF-11-2016 cluster, through an open and interoperable Data Spine. The federation of the 4 base platforms is complemented by industrial platforms, collaboration tools and smart factory systems, specifically selected to support connected manufacturers in lot-size-one manufacturing. The federated eFactory platform delivers enhanced values and reduces the barrier to innovation by providing seamless access to services and solutions that are currently dispersed. In parallel the platform provides the necessary infrastructure, tools and support for novel service creation and validations by third parties. Further, by fostering healthy competition in the smart factory ecosystem, the eFactory platform will ensure that the needs of the evolving smart manufacturing industry are met for the long term. The eFactory federation is offered to the manufacturing and logistics companies as an open platform; to utilize the offered functionality, experiment with innovation approaches and develop custom solutions based on specific needs. The project demonstrates the power of federation through 3 embedded large scale pilots focusing on lot-size-one manufacturing and sustainable value networks in various sectors, while a cross sectorial circular economy pilot is also incorporated. The results of the pilots are openly made available as lessons learned and best practices.
Objective 1: Form a technology platform for cross-organizational and cross-sectorial integration, with embedded intelligence and embedded tools and services to create an industrial ecosystem in Europe.
