Smart Data Solutions for Producing SMEs in Baden-Wuerttemberg

sdsc-project-image

Besides the BMBF-funded project “SDI-X” this project is the second pillar of the state support of the SDIL. The project is funded by the Ministry of science, research and art Baden-Württemberg (MWK) as part of the Smart Data Solution Center Baden-Württemberg (SDSC BW) to explore the use of suitable Smart Data technologies for producing SMEs. The application provides the formal inclusion into the SDIL as it appears now.

The Smart Data Solution Center is a comprehensive contribution for all SDIL-DICs focused on tools and technologies, specifically for producing SMEs (up to approx.5000 employees) in Baden-Württemberg. The project’s aim is the research of a simplified access to Smart Data technologies to facilitate the use of these technologies for SMEs. Within the project, Smart Data analyses of real industrial data sets are performed for SMEs in the form of potential analyses. The goal is to create an awareness that especially prepares smaller companies for the participation in data innovation communities and that generates interesting analysis and recommendation issues. It is intended to realize an involvement, particularly in the DIC “Industry 4.0”. (Currently, SDSC-BW supervises companies like Herrenknecht, Bilcare Research, and Rolf Benz. The public relations department of the SDSC-BW has already enabled SIDL-relevant contacts to ZF, Fischerwerke and Porsche in Baden-Württemberg.)

Within the scope of the project, not only technically appropriate technologies from the SIDL context will be identified. In fact, especially the simple usability and the ability for the successful integration into existing systems. For example, production data acquisition, MES and BI-solutions will be evaluated. The results are published in the form of public success stories. The analysis code will be provided in the SDIL repository.
