New BDVA White Paper on “Big Data Challenges in Smart Manufacturing Industry”

The Big Data Value Asso­cia­ti­on (BDVA) Smart Manu­fac­tu­ring Indus­try group released the second ver­si­on of the white paper “Big Data Chal­len­ges in Smart Manu­fac­tu­ring Indus­try” out­lining the chal­len­ges for a full adop­ti­on of big data tech­no­lo­gies. The IDS refe­rence archi­tec­tu­re is reco­gni­zed as a pro­mi­nent solu­ti­on that could evol­ve into a ful­ly-fled­ged data sharing space.

The BDVA divi­ded the chal­len­ges into per­spec­ti­ves on Smart Pro­ducts, Smart Fac­to­ries and Smart Sup­ply Chains and look at non-tech­ni­cal chal­len­ges like regu­la­ti­on, skills and Busi­ness Models but also and tech­ni­cal chal­len­ges and inno­va­tions.

The Smart Pro­duct Lifecy­cle sce­n­a­rio sta­tes the hig­hest prio­ri­ty for pro­duct, ser­vice and data inter­ope­ra­bi­li­ty. This is of cour­se a high need for easy and seam­less inte­gra­ti­on of the various aspects of Smart Pro­ducts (refer also to Micha­el E. Por­ter and James E. Hep­pe­l­mann arti­cle “How Smart, Con­nec­ted Pro­ducts Are Trans­forming Com­pe­ti­ti­on”). A simi­lar need is sta­ted with a high prio­ri­ty for the Smart Sup­ply chain, the ver­ti­cal inte­gra­ti­on in sup­ply chains to achie­ve inter­ope­ra­bi­li­ty bet­ween the actors and the sys­tem along the sup­ply chain. For the Smart Fac­to­ry, the need for secu­ri­ty and data inte­gri­ty is prio­ri­ti­zed high.

The docu­ment inclu­des a mar­ket ana­ly­sis on Big Data Tech­no­lo­gies.

From an IDSA point of view it is remar­kab­le, that IDS is reco­gni­zed as high­ly inno­va­ti­ve trend towards digi­tal Euro­pe in con­junc­tion with the need for Euro­pean Data Spaces.
