Digitalization, including the integration of networking capabilities into physical products and production lines, has entered various industries and application fields by now. Terms like »Internet of Things«, »Industrie 4.0«, »The Industrial Internet« or »Smart Data« are no longer just buzzwords but are being put into execution by various companies. Vast quantities of data are generated daily and offer new potentials when collected, aggregated and analyzed for e.g. better decision making. But along come plenty of questions about how companies should cope with these new and challenging technologies.

  • How can data be leveraged to create value to your business?
  • What will be the lead application that will drive data analytics technologies?
  • Which related products, services and data providers will define the future ecosystem of products and services?
  • What are the right advanced data analytic tools for my application in my company and what are the practical challenges?

In order to answer these and further relevant questions in the field of advanced data analytics, KEX Knowledge Exchange and its network of experienced experts are looking for consortium partners to join the project „Advanced Data Analytics for Smart Products, Production and Services“. The project runs approx. one year and will start on the 1st of June 2017.

Through your regular participation in the project meetings and workshops you will be able to influence the content and progress of the project, so that these are aligned with the individual requirements of your company. Our research partners, the Fraunhofer IPT, FIR at RWTH Aachen, Demonstration Factory Aachen and the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering WZL, provide their know-how regarding the investigated subject areas.
