ForeSee 1#Webinar: Predictive Maintenance Platforms and Microservices for manufacturing operations

On September 24th there will be the 1st webinar of the ForeSee cluster, hosted by CRIT from the Z-BRE4K Project.

During this first webinar, the main aspects of Platforms and Microservices for Manufacturing PdM aspects will be presented, together with the showcase of whiteware and machine tool applications of Uptime, Serena and Programs projects.

The webinar will be opened by Dr.  Sotiris Makris and Dr. Kosmas Alexopoulos  from the Laboratory for Manufacturing Systems & Automation (LMS), University of Patras, Greece, which is partner of the SERENA project.

Keynote speech:

The introduction of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platforms in manufacturing is a key aspect in the context of Industry4.0 as it enables smart manufacturing implementations based on smart data from the factory floor.  At the same time, Predictive Maintenance (PdM) is gaining significant attention as an important Industry4.0 enabler that contributes to the Overall Equipment Efficiency and profitability.

In this presentation, Dr. Makris and Dr. Alexopoulos will discuss the main characteristics of software architecture and the key components that state-of-the-art industrial platform have for supporting PdM operations in manufacturing industry.  Platform hierarchical layers, micro-services, data communication and processing solutions will be discussed, among others.
