Opening the gates to the digital future

Productive4.0 is an ambitious holistic innovation project, meant to open the doors to the potentials of Digital Industry and to maintain a leadership position of the industries in Europe. All partners involved will work on creating the capability to efficiently design and integrate hardware and software of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Linking the real with the digital world takes more than just adding software to the hardware.

ABOUT PRODUCTIVE 4.0

A technology push: hands-on solutions for the European Digital Industry

With 108 partners involved, Productive4.0 is Europe´s biggest research project in the field of Digital Industry. As a brain pool the Framework takes a step further towards hands-on solutions. Means of electronics and  Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) across the entire value chain are the key to enhanced production efficiency and significant gains.

They will make production more predictable and flexible, change business models, and they will be the basis for more qualified employment. Productive4.0 will furnish the companies with fundamental tools necessary to transform the potentials of the upcoming digital revolution, known as Digital Industry, into business success.

The French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) is a key player in research, development and innovation in four main areas: defence and security, nuclear and renewable energies, technological research for industry, fundamental research in the physical sciences and life sciences.
Since it was first set up, the CEA has been involved in transferring scientific knowledge and innovation “from research to industry”.

Key project responsibilities
  • technical contribution (WP1, WP5 and WP8) and dissemination activities (WP10)
  • WP8: CEA will bring its expertise in coordination middleware (LINC). It will be used to allow hot smart reconfiguration (both negotiated and transactional) of the whole system, combining information coming from raw information/alerts or combined alerts/conditions, taking into account context and dynamic aspects of the fab and ensuring functional consistency at global system level. In collaboration with ST CROLLES and BAG-ERA, CEA will demonstrate the supervision/coordination of a global system by providing a functional prototype and its GUI
  • WP1: safety and security properties within the Arrowhead Framework: from design architecture to rapid prototyping of CPS; ensuring coherence between WP1 and WP8 CEA contributions on the ST use case
  • WP5: CEA will bring its expertise on dataflow / workflow model of computation combining scheduling approaches and real time constraints to model workflows in the factory and supply chain model, focusing on the semi-conductor industry and equipment providers.
