In this app­li­ca­ti­on sce­n­a­rio, Adva­neo ser­ves as a bro­ker that arran­ges the secu­re exchan­ge of the respec­tive data bet­ween pro­vi­der and user via IDS struc­tures. On a vir­tu­al mar­ket­place, the “Adva­neo Data mar­ket­place”, com­pre­hen­si­ve meta­da­ta from dif­fe­rent sources are avail­ab­le on the sup­ply side. Other users of the mar­ket­place can purcha­se this infor­ma­ti­on to gain the latest insights or to deve­lop new busi­ness models.

Data sover­eig­n­ty has first prio­ri­ty in all pro­ces­ses: exchan­ge is only pos­si­ble via the secu­red data space of IDS that safe­guards the pro­ces­ses for the part­ners and simul­ta­ne­ous­ly gua­ran­tees adhe­rence to the dis­tinct rules of the game. All par­ti­ci­pants in the data exchan­ge are iden­ti­fied and cer­ti­fied thanks to IDS.

Solu­ti­on

Adva­neo advi­ses and accom­pa­nies com­pa­nies in the field of digi­tal trans­for­ma­ti­on. One focal point for European rail­way com­pa­nies is on ques­ti­ons of stan­dar­di­sa­ti­on and digi­ti­sa­ti­on in infra­st­ruc­tu­re tech­no­lo­gy. This is all about gua­ran­te­eing the hig­hest pos­si­ble data secu­ri­ty to avo­id data misu­se.

Deut­sche Bahn, for examp­le, equips tens of thousands of rail­way-track swit­ches with spe­cial sen­sors that pro­vi­de the com­pa­ny with important infor­ma­ti­on about the con­di­ti­on of the points dri­ves and the­re­fo­re enab­le pre­dic­tive main­ten­an­ce. The­se data are also of gre­at inte­rest to other com­pa­nies so they could even be tra­ded com­mer­ci­al­ly.

Solu­ti­on

3D prin­ting tech­ni­ques offer many advan­ta­ges to com­pa­nies. Becau­se behind the term 3D prin­ting the­re are a num­ber of addi­ti­ve manu­fac­tu­ring tech­no­lo­gies which can impro­ve struc­tures and pro­ces­ses. So far, it has main­ly been lar­ge com­pa­nies which have been able to bene­fit from the inno­va­ti­ve pro­ces­ses. But it is small and medi­um-sized com­pa­nies, in par­ti­cu­lar, that have pro­blems imple­men­ting their ide­as with respect to Addi­ti­ve Manu­fac­tu­ring. AMa­ble wants to pave the way to indus­tri­al 3D prin­ting for the­se com­pa­nies and deli­ver sup­port from the deve­lop­ment pro­cess of the pro­duct right through to the finis­hed prin­tout.

Pro­blem Sol­ved

This app­li­ca­ti­on sce­n­a­rio offers solu­ti­ons for the auto­mo­ti­ve indus­try but is also inte­res­ting for other indus­tries. Com­pa­red to clas­sic cloud solu­ti­ons, INTERNATIONAL DATA SPACES that ser­ves as a data inter­face to all par­ti­ci­pa­ting com­pa­nies pro­vi­des a wide ran­ge of bene­fits. IDS crea­tes the tech­ni­cal basis for sover­eign data exchan­ge. Many of the data that must be exch­an­ged when such risk events occur are so sen­si­ti­ve that com­pa­nies have not been pas­sing them on auto­ma­ti­cal­ly to their part­ners until now. Thanks to IDS, in future, the com­pa­nies – as data owners – will retain con­trol over the­se sen­si­ti­ve data that can be stored and exch­an­ged decen­tral­ly. The par­ti­ci­pants attach defi­ned terms of use to their infor­ma­ti­on and thus con­trol how the data con­su­mer can use the infor­ma­ti­on.

Solu­ti­on

Hur­ri­ca­nes, ear­th­quakes, bankrupt sup­plier com­pa­nies: hazards like the­se often lead to break­downs along the sup­ply chain bet­ween sup­pliers, trans­por­ters and manu­fac­tu­rers. This can serious­ly dis­rupt the pro­duc­tion of goods. Howe­ver, when such risk events occur, com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on bet­ween the par­ti­ci­pants is often inef­fi­ci­ent, incur­ring high costs for time and resour­ces. The “Col­la­bo­ra­ti­ve Sup­ply Chain Risk Manage­ment” use case helps com­pa­nies to exchan­ge infor­ma­ti­on and sen­si­ti­ve data quick­ly and secu­re­ly in order to avo­id bot­t­len­ecks like this. The com­pa­nies invol­ved work more clo­se­ly tog­e­ther and increa­se the trans­pa­ren­cy of the sup­ply chain in the case of risks. Moreo­ver, auto­ma­ted risk reports make it pos­si­ble for the com­pa­nies to react more effec­tively and effi­ci­ent­ly.

The tech­no­lo­gi­cal start-up Cybus pro­vi­des a soft­ware solu­ti­on for Indus­try 4.0 that gua­ran­tees secu­re and simp­le dis­tri­bu­ti­on and use of indus­try data in the manu­fac­tu­ring envi­ron­ment. For this pur­po­se, Cybus has deve­lo­ped the Sand­box whe­re the pre-instal­led soft­ware solu­ti­on makes it as simp­le as pos­si­ble for com­pa­nies to access INTERNATIONAL DATA SPACES and thus imple­ment secu­re data exchan­ge. By means of the Sand­box, manu­fac­tu­ring com­pa­nies can test their own use cases under real con­di­ti­ons – wit­hout having to build their own con­nec­tor. This solu­ti­on by Cybus is ide­al for all indus­tri­al com­pa­nies that want to exchan­ge data via an IDS-com­pli­ant con­nec­tor in order to bene­fit from digi­ti­sa­ti­on. IDS pro­vi­des a gui­de­li­ne and a secu­re basis for doing busi­ness with such data.

Solu­ti­on

Manu­fac­tu­ring in the manu­fac­tu­ring indus­try, par­ti­cu­lar­ly dis­cre­te manu­fac­tu­ring, is lar­ge­ly auto­ma­ted, howe­ver, net­wor­king bet­ween machi­nes belon­ging to dif­fe­rent manu­fac­tu­rers in terms of Indus­try 4.0 rare­ly exists. To get into a posi­ti­on whe­re com­pa­nies can mana­ge their machine­ry bet­ter and to increa­se pro­duc­tivi­ty, they need more trans­pa­ren­cy for their own equip­ment and more con­trol over any digi­tal access exter­nal ser­vice pro­vi­ders have to their machi­nes. To opti­mi­se their con­trol over machi­nes, many com­pa­nies are working on their own soft­ware solu­ti­ons: but pro­grams that work on a small sca­le often can­not be imple­men­ted on a lar­ge sca­le. The topic of data secu­ri­ty often falls by the way­si­de. For cla­ri­fi­ca­ti­on: the big­gest things blo­cking the roll-out of Indus­try 4.0 pro­to­ty­pes are the topics of data secu­ri­ty and data gover­nan­ce.

Pro­blem Sol­ved

After acqui­ring machi­ne, ope­ra­ti­on and pro­cess data (e.g. cur­r­ents, moments, vibra­ti­ons, fault messa­ges and sta­tus infor­ma­ti­on) DATATRON trans­forms and com­pres­sesthem as requi­red befo­re they are for­war­ded to the IDS Pro­vi­der Con­nec­tor.

Always pro­vi­ded that the lat­ter pro­du­ce the necessa­ry aut­ho­ri­sa­ti­ons and fol­low the rules.

Solu­ti­on

DATA­TRO­NiQ GmbH deve­lo­ped DATATRON, an intel­li­gent device for data record­ing that collec­ts and eva­lua­tes tele­me­try data from pro­duc­tion machi­nes and trans­fers them into cloud ser­vices. Ope­ra­bi­li­ty is to be exten­ded, depen­ding on each respec­tive pur­po­se, so that the data to be trans­fer­red are sup­ple­men­ted by user pro­files and aut­ho­ri­sa­ti­ons and the access manage­ment that goes along with them. In this app­li­ca­ti­on sce­n­a­rio, an IDS Pro­vi­der Con­nec­tor is deploy­ed as an inter­me­dia­ry bet­ween DATATRON, as the data source, and the con­su­mers of data. The con­su­mers can be exter­nal users or can be wit­hin the same orga­ni­sa­ti­on As part of the use case, a num­ber of IDS con­nec­tors were imple­men­ted. The­se are par­ti­cu­lar­ly sui­ta­ble for tele­me­try data as they occur, for examp­le, in the field of indus­tri­al series pro­duc­tion. Par­ti­cu­lar atten­ti­on was paid to a simp­le and fle­xi­ble way of con­fi­gu­ring the usa­ge rights lin­ked to the data – depen­ding on the respec­tive source and the plan­ned user.

In this use case, vehi­cle para­me­ters are used to avo­id tech­ni­cal break­downs and the­re­fo­re to increa­se avai­la­bi­li­ty. The IDS FIWARE archi­tec­tu­re enab­les secu­re data exchan­ge bet­ween vehi­cles and fleet ope­ra­tors to impro­ve pre­dic­tive main­ten­an­ce for vehi­cles. The hard­ware com­po­nent from Stra­tio Auto­mo­ti­ve, which is instal­led in the vehi­cles, trans­mits infor­ma­ti­on such as the actu­al engi­ne tem­pe­ra­tu­re or the bat­te­ry char­ge sta­tus to the ser­ver.

The “Mate­ri­als Data Space” is also rele­vant for com­pa­nies from other are­as, e.g. for manu­fac­tu­rers of medi­cal pro­duc­ts or for the aero­space indus­try, and in gene­ral for indus­tries that deve­lop secu­ri­ty-rele­vant com­pon­ents. To be in a posi­ti­on to make use of the­se bene­fits, com­pa­nies must trans­fer the digi­tal file of their pro­duc­ts and with that also key com­pe­ten­ci­es to others. That ent­ails risks. Thanks to the secu­re IDS archi­tec­tu­re, howe­ver, the com­pa­nies par­ti­ci­pa­ting in infor­ma­ti­on exchan­ge retain con­trol over their data. Com­pa­nies can trans­fer rele­vant para­me­ters to their part­ners wit­hout pas­sing on their core know-how.

Solu­ti­on

New mate­ri­als play a signi­fi­cant role in the deve­lop­ment of inno­va­ti­ve pro­duc­ts. To be in a posi­ti­on to deve­lop, pro­du­ce and pro­cess mate­ri­als more quick­ly, com­pa­nies requi­re a cen­tral plat­form that faci­li­ta­tes secu­re data exchan­ge: the “Mate­ri­als Data Space” pro­vi­des cross-com­pa­ny digi­tal infor­ma­ti­on about mate­ri­als and com­pon­ents along the ent­i­re value added chain. For examp­le, com­pa­nies recei­ve infor­ma­ti­on about the ori­gin of the mate­ri­al, about cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­ons or pos­si­ble dama­ge by means of a digi­tal mate­ri­al-twin. This is par­ti­cu­lar­ly use­ful in com­p­laints manage­ment in the auto­mo­ti­ve indus­try. If a vehi­cle suf­fers engi­ne dama­ge, for examp­le, it is often dif­fi­cult to find the cau­se. By means of the digi­tal mate­ri­al-twin, the auto­mo­ti­ve manu­fac­tu­rer will in future be able to exac­t­ly trace back the sup­ply chain for all the 1,500 dif­fe­rent com­pon­ents in the com­bus­ti­on engi­ne.

Pro­blem Sol­ved

In the app­li­ca­ti­on sce­n­a­rio “Acce­le­ra­ted B2B Onboar­ding through IDS Map­ping Ser­vices”, cer­ti­fied com­pa­nies can access modu­lar map­ping ser­vices by other com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on part­ners via a cen­tral, IDS-com­pli­ant plat­form and use them for their own pro­ces­ses. If the­se map­pings are used com­pre­hen­si­ve­ly, the bila­te­ral coor­di­na­ti­on effort is redu­ced and con­nec­tion speeds increa­se dra­ma­ti­cal­ly. The INTERNATIONAL DATA SPACES archi­tec­tu­re gua­ran­tees that the com­pa­nies par­ti­ci­pa­ting in this exchan­ge retain the sover­eig­n­ty over their own data.

Solu­ti­on

Com­pa­nies that main­tain busi­ness rela­ti­ons with each other need to exchan­ge data and news during their work tog­e­ther, for examp­le when orde­ring steel. They use their IT sys­tems for this but the dif­fe­rent sys­tems usual­ly use dif­fe­rent lan­guages. The per­son who sends the mes­sa­ge deci­des on the data con­tent, so deter­mi­nes the lan­guage it is sent in. The reci­pi­ent then has to trans­la­te the mes­sa­ge so its sys­tems can use it. Com­pa­nies have to put in a lot of effort to decode each mes­sa­ge from their busi­ness part­ners so that their sys­tems can read the messa­ges auto­ma­ti­cal­ly. This bila­te­ral map­ping takes a lot of time and thus incurs a lot of costs for the com­pa­nies. To make sure they retain data sover­eig­n­ty the com­pa­nies do not hand over con­trol of their map­pings. Under cer­tain con­di­ti­ons, com­pa­nies could bene­fit from exch­an­ging their map­ping logic to help them work more effi­ci­ent­ly.

Reduc­tion of plan­ning inse­cu­ri­ties and slack times in the sup­ply chain

  • Deut­sche Tele­kom
  • Man­nes­mann Line Pipe GmbH
  • Salz­git­ter Flach­stahl GmbH

Pro­blem Sol­ved

The app­li­ca­ti­on sce­n­a­rio “Pre­dic­ting Lead Times” aims to plan sup­ply chains in an intel­li­gent and cost- and pro­cess-opti­mi­sed way. Trans­port data from the past are com­bi­ned with plan­ning data from the enter­pri­se resour­ce plan­ning sys­tem, actu­al data from OSCA® and public data in order to obtain an exact state­ment of trans­port time and deli­very time. INTERNATIONAL DATA SPACES helps the com­pa­nies invol­ved in the sup­ply chain to con­nect to each other. The data gathe­red for the com­pa­nies are anony­mi­sed in the pro­cess so that they do not dis­c­lo­se any com­pa­ny secrets but nevertheless offer added value for other com­pa­nies. The par­ti­ci­pa­ting com­pa­nies and their data are pro­tec­ted by the IDS archi­tec­tu­re.

Solu­ti­on

SETLOG, tog­e­ther with OSCA®, deve­lops tailor-made SCM and VCM soft­ware. Many of the soft­ware developer’s custo­mers come from the tex­ti­le and con­su­mer goods indus­try: com­pa­nies that buy and pro­du­ce goods glo­bal­ly. Becau­se of indi­vi­du­al custo­mer requi­re­ments, redu­ced pro­duct life cycles and increa­singly vola­ti­le demand, com­pa­nies are being put under more and more pres­su­re. When deli­vering their pro­duc­ts, howe­ver, they still rely on plan­ning data as no real-time data are avail­ab­le. This com­pli­ca­tes the con­trol of the pro­ces­ses that are part of pro­cu­re­ment and dis­tri­bu­ti­on logistics. It is dif­fi­cult to pre­dict when goods will actual­ly arri­ve at their desti­na­ti­on. That lea­ves litt­le scope for plan­ning fur­ther steps, such as door and wareh­ouse plan­ning or (pre-) order picking. The resul­ting plan­ning uncer­tain­ties lead to increa­sed buf­fer times in the sup­ply chain. The con­se­quence is a lack of trans­pa­ren­cy influ­en­cing fur­ther pro­ces­ses and the­re­fo­re inva­lid plan­ning for goods deli­ve­ries. Delay­ed deli­ve­ries cost time, money and resour­ces.

Pro­blem Sol­ved

In order to opti­mi­se the coope­ra­ti­on and pro­ces­ses of both the bot­t­ler and the sup­plier, the second level of the use case beco­mes effec­tive: the inte­gra­ti­on of a fore­cast pro­vi­der. For examp­le, live pro­duc­tion data from the bot­t­ler are exch­an­ged to faci­li­ta­te on-demand bot­t­le pro­duc­tion. In addi­ti­on, the digi­tal mar­ket­place pro­vi­des data sources that are used by the fore­cast pro­vi­der to put it in a posi­ti­on to reli­ab­ly fore­cast the mar­ket for the final pro­duct of the bot­t­ler. The imple­men­ta­ti­on of the “Data Intel­li­gence Hub” estab­lished by Deut­sche Tele­kom on the basis of the INTERNATIONAL DATA SPACES refe­rence archi­tec­tu­re model makes sure that the par­ti­ci­pa­ting com­pa­nies con­stant­ly retain con­trol over their own sen­si­ti­ve data when exch­an­ging infor­ma­ti­on.

Solu­ti­on

To remain com­pe­ti­ti­ve, the manu­fac­tu­ring indus­try must con­stant­ly impro­ve: by opti­mi­sing pro­ces­ses, redu­cing costs and satis­fy­ing their custo­mers all at the same time. The use case “Indus­try 4.0 Demons­tra­tor: Asset Admi­nis­tra­ti­on Shell Live Expe­ri­ence” helps com­pa­nies to impro­ve their value added chain in pro­duc­tion. At the first level of the app­li­ca­ti­on sce­n­a­rio for examp­le, a bot­t­ler is loo­king for a com­pa­ny that pro­du­ces dif­fe­rent shaped bot­t­les for them. The request is pro­ces­sed via a digi­tal busi­ness mar­ket­place that works as an inter­me­dia­ry. The bot­t­ler selec­ts the appro­pria­te offer from the sup­pliers for bot­t­les that offer their pro­duc­ts via the IDS-com­pli­ant mar­ket­place and con­clu­des a mas­ter agree­ment with the respec­tive sup­plier. Both the bot­t­ler and the sup­plier are inte­rested in a long-term mutu­al busi­ness rela­ti­on to crea­te the basic con­di­ti­ons for impro­ving their respec­tive pro­duc­tion pro­ces­ses. A com­mis­si­on fee is paid to the ope­ra­tor of the digi­tal mar­ket­place.

Pro­blem Sol­ved

Tele­kom wants to faci­li­ta­te data access with the pro­duct “Tele­kom Data Intel­li­gence Hub” by encou­ra­ging and enab­ling com­pa­nies to exchan­ge their data via a secu­re busi­ness mar­ket­place accord­ing to the princi­ples of INTERNATIONAL DATA SPACES. “Tele­kom Data Intel­li­gence Hub” is inten­ded to ser­ve as a digi­tal con­nec­tion bet­ween com­pa­nies and be both a source for com­mer­ci­al data acqui­si­ti­on and open data. The plat­form offers users tools for ana­ly­sis in addi­ti­on to acqui­si­ti­on, exchan­ge and pro­ces­sing of data. Indus­try experts, e.g. pro­gramm­ers, data engi­neers, data jour­na­lists and data sci­en­tists, get the pos­si­bi­li­ty to deve­lop new busi­ness models, data-dri­ven pro­duc­ts or ser­vices. “Tele­kom Data Intel­li­gence Hub” is rele­vant for com­pa­nies of dif­fe­rent sizes and indus­tries but also for uni­ver­si­ties, for examp­le, that deve­lop models for the com­bi­na­ti­on of data and algo­rithms to attain new insights. To achie­ve this, INTERNATIONAL DATA SPACES pro­vi­des the refe­rence archi­tec­tu­re that faci­li­ta­tes the secu­re and sover­eign exchan­ge of sen­si­ti­ve data.

Solu­ti­on

Part­ners in a value-added chain often lack trans­pa­ren­cy, secu­ri­ty and trust with respect to the use of their data. For examp­le, the com­pa­nies invol­ved in pro­duc­tion, sales and dis­tri­bu­ti­on (sup­ply chain) do not pass on important infor­ma­ti­on to their busi­ness part­ners for fear of losing data and con­trol. Com­pa­nies could redu­ce costs and increa­se the qua­li­ty of their pro­duc­ts by means of pre­ci­se infor­ma­ti­on. To achie­ve that tar­get, lar­ger com­pa­nies work on their own solu­ti­ons, howe­ver, smal­ler and medi­um-sized com­pa­nies often fall by the way­si­de.

EU SMEs face clear bar­ri­ers in the upt­ake of Addi­ti­ve Manu­fac­tu­ring (AM) rela­ted to lack of skil­led human resour­ces, and lack of access to know-how, equip­ment, infra­st­ruc­tu­re and mar­kets. The princi­pal objec­tive of this pro­ject is to over­co­me tho­se bar­ri­ers and enab­le the upt­ake of AM tech­no­lo­gies by SMEs lea­ding to the deve­lop­ment of inno­va­ti­ve busi­ness and ser­vice models and new value-chain models in a ful­ly digi­tal envi­ron­ment – thus brin­ging their ide­as and busi­ness cases to life and making their inno­va­tions Addi­tively Manu­fac­tura­ble (AMa­ble). To achie­ve this objec­tive, part­ners with exper­ti­se right across the AM value chain have been brought tog­e­ther from the four cor­ners of the EU.
