Large Scale Trials for Manufacturing Data Spaces and Big Data-Driven Smart Digital Factories

Virtual event
10th December 09:00 – 14:00 CET


Over the last 3 years, Boost 4.0 has successfully guided the European manufacturing industry in the introduction of Big Data by actively implementing its use and exploitation in different areas of factories (smart engineering, planning & commissioning, digital workplace, operations, connected production, service and maintenance) and across different sectors (automotive, machine tool, white goods, textile, ceramics, elevation/Aero).

In this final conference, some of the most relevant digital players and factories in the area of Industry 4.0 will present the results of the largest big data trials in the sector. Key leading experts on a broad spectrum of areas related to Industry 4.0 will provide their insights, best practices and lessons learned on how big data technologies, AI and digital manufacturing platforms have helped companies such as VW or Whirlpool to revert long periods (25% of the time) and large warehouse overstocks (up to 20%). High-end textile business networks will explain how to track and trace their supply networks for Preferential Certification of Origin (PCO). Machine tool manufacturers such as FILL and +GF+ will share how they have reduced their design time, service costs, quality defects and unplanned downtimes beyond 20% or how companies such as Benteler Automotive or Philips are building industrial data spaces to achieve enhanced operational excellence and augmented workforce decision support.

In addition, Mr. Jordi Llinares Sanjuan (Subdirectorate General for Industry Digitization and Collaborative Environments – Ministry of Industry), Mr. Kimmo Rossi (Head of Data Research and Innovation Sector, Data Policy and Innovation unit EC) and Mrs. Arantxa Tapia (Minister of Economic Development, Sustainability and Environment of the Basque Government), will also present the public policies for industry 4.0 data-driven digital transformation.
