Parallel Workshop Session W2.6 – “PLANTCockpit - a Service-oriented System for Enhancing Productivity in Manufacturing”
Service-oriented approaches are increasingly implemented in manufacturing systems. They are used in various levels of the manufacturing systems’ structure, ranging from sensor and actuator level up to MES and ERP. Within the EU FP7 project PLANTCockpit, this approach enables to extract manufacturing data from all these levels and to flexibly compute and combine them in order to generate and visualize aggregated data. This data are Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that are used for enhancing production visibility, for energy management and sustainable manufacturing.
