MAGGIOLI LEADS THE FACTLOG EUROPEAN PROJECT
Maggioli Group, the Italian company with the widest and most qualified range of products and services for the Public Administrations, SMEs and Professionals, will lead the FACTLOG project, funded by the European Union within the Horizon 2020 framework program.
The 42-months project, which started in November 2019, envisages collaboration between major companies operating in software development, with Universities and Research Institutions from 11 European countries: Italy, Germany, United Kingdom, Ireland, Greece, Portugal, Switzerland, Slovenia, Romania, Serbia and Turkey.
The FACTLOG (Energy-Aware Factory Analytics for Process Industries) project enables the “Cognitive Factory” as a set of independent but interconnected Enhanced Cognitive Twin, capable of automating and, therefore, detecting and effectively react to anomalies and interruptions, as well as opportunities in terms of improving the production process, since they enjoy a local or global vision of the operations and are able to reason and optimize energy efficiency in the long term.
The technologies developed within the FACTLOG project will be tested and validated in 5 industrial sectors (automotive, steel manufactoring, petrochemical, textile and renewable energy) with the support of 5 European partners (Continental Automotive – Romania, BRC Reinforcement – United Kingdom, Fratelli Piacenza – Italy, Tupras – Turkey, and JEMS – Slovenia) and three manufacturing clusters, Control 2k (UK), Hanse Aerospace (Germany) and Tages (Turkey).
Maggioli will coordinate all project management activities, taking into account costs, potential risks, and quality levels to allow all partners to work together under the best conditions. It is also responsible for interacting with the European Commission, providing progress reports and relevant information during the implementation of the project. From a technical point of view, it plays an important role in the development of the FACTLOG platform acting as the Technical Coordinator, and in the design, implementation and full deployment in the pilot sites.
With this last acquisition, Maggioli has 10 innovative European projects in its portfolio.
