WP2 overview: Architecture, drivers’ analysis and conceptual design

Work Package 2 focuses on formalising the vision of OPTIMISED. This work package will translate the requirements and use cases defined in WP1 into an integrated architecture solution. The architecture will define the physical information back-bone infrastructure and protocols for data collection, dissemination and processing between the different enterprise layers (Business Logistics Management and Manufacturing Operations Management) within each of the manufacturing systems.

The key objectives of WP2 are to:

  • Analyse existing information models for each industrial demonstrator
  • Develop data models
  • Develop architectural design specification for each industrial demonstrator
  • Develop implementation strategy

WP2 will have multiple streams that enable a review to be undertaken on each of the demonstrator factories. Within each stream, work will concentrate on the development of data maps that encompass the key concerns of the processes within each enterprise with the aim to develop a scope for the integration of this data into downstream simulation models. The key will be in identifying data model interactions, so that data dependencies may be highlighted. Similarly, the way that this data impacts on key decision-making processes will become apparent and will be accounted for when generating the project approach to realising real-time factory simulation models (WP4).

This work package will work closely with WPs 3-5 to ensure both the successful integration (WPs3-4) of the OPTIMISED architecture and deployment to the demonstrators (WP5) based on the system requirements identified in WP1.

Deliverables

D2.1 Information model, data capture, data flow and interface report for each factory - Issued 30-Jun-2016

This document defines the existing data streams for the demonstrator sites at Alstom, GOIMEK and Laing O’Rourke. The focus of this report is to introduce the various systems at each site and define the system to system interaction by capturing the semantics of the data including purpose, type and frequency.

D2.2 Data and information management plan - Issued 12-Jun-2017

This report documents a set of recommendations for a number of architectural design decisions within the OPTIMISED project across the three demonstrators: Alstom, Goimek and Laing O'Rourke. This deliverable follows up on two previous internal reports that document the data flows of the demonstrators and a reference architecture for OPTIMISED respectively.

D2.3 Data model design report - Issued 13-Jun-2017

This report documents the data model views of each of the three demonstrators to be developed as part of the OPTIMISED project: the Alstom, Goimek and Laing O'Rourke demonstrators. A data model view describes the structure of the data entities and their relationships.

D2.4 Final Report on system architecture design - Issued 31-Jan-2018

This report documents the system architecture design within the OPTIMISED project across the three demonstrators: Alstom, Goimek and Laing O'Rourke. The design is formulated in the basis of their industrial requirements and builds upon other software architecture documents. The system architecture design is used as the basis for software development and integration.

D2.5 Report on Information architecture design - Issued 13-Jun-2017

This report documents the data flows of each of the three demonstrators to be developed as part of the OPTIMISED project: the Alstom, Goimek and Laing O'Rourke demonstrators. A data flow is used to show the inputs to and outputs from the system, the flow of information through the system as data are processed, transformed and stored within it.

D2.6 Implementation strategy - Issued 23-Nov-2016

This deliverable sets out an implementation strategy for the OPTIMISED project, which is to be implemented for each demonstrator by the Software Development and Integration Leader. These guidelines provide guidance and recommendations for the particular situation of software developers who are located in geographically distributed places and are members of a European project.
