1st September 2016, Berlin (Germany)
Nextworks has participated to the launch of the new R&D project COMPOSITION on Factory of the Future at Fraunhofer premises in Berlin.
COMPOSITION plans to develp a digital ecosystem which helps factories optimise internal production processes and external collaboration with suppliers by putting existing data, knowledge and tools into play. The technologies will be trialled in two different factory infrastructures: a medical device production plant in Clonmel (Ireland) owned by Boston Scientific Ltd and a lift production plant in Kilkis (Greece) owned by Kleemann Lifts.
Nextworks will work on integration of IoT middleware (Symphony) and Information Management System (IIMS) at Kleemann Lifts to optimize resources and production lines in the factory.
