Marposs is strongly supporting the DIGIMAN project, an initiative that aims to address the industrial scenario, outlined by the Industry 4.0 paradigms, through the development of Cyber Physical Systems. These systems respond to market demands with a framework that embraces and completes the machine (physical part) by pairing an Augmented Manufacturing Platform or AMP (Cyber Part). The platform interfaces with processes and machines, through appropriate modules with high engineering content, which then formalises the knowledge of operators and experts while leveraging learning skills.
The Industry 4.0 plan promotes the development of intelligent and connected products to create systems that are part physical and part virtual (Cyber Physical Systems). A recent estimate states that by 2020, the value of 4.0 solutions, proposed by the supplier ecosystem, will be around €420 billion. Approximately 80-100 percent of production facilities could be using these solutions by 2025, with a potential annual cost savings of US$900 billion to US$2.3 trillion.
The main objectives of the DIGIMAN project are the ability to improve, even in real-time, the quality of products and the ability to infer on the state of the process (machines and components) by proposing improvement strategies (Virtual Operator). The partnership between MUSP (manufacturing process expert), MISTER (IoT and software solution expert), and CNR-ISTEC (ceramic materials expert) is complemented by an industrial partnership: machine and component manufacturers as well as end-users.
