Connected and integrated application of Industrial Data Analytics for value-creating, competence-oriented collaboration in dynamic value creation networks

(Project duration: April 2019 to March 2022)


Problem Definition

Industrial data analytics offers new, innovative opportunities for manufacturing companies in terms of optimization of products and processes and enables to initiate new business models and collaborations in value adding networks. However, current efforts are characterised by rising realisation that especially small and medium sized enterprises (SME) need support to use modern analytical technologies in a goal oriented way. On the one hand there is a lack of necessary competencies and implementation strategies within the companies. On the other hand there is a need for strategically aligned digital services to be able to profit from opportunities provided by Industrial Data Analytics. The existing obstacles in the technical and especially the organizational integration of users, system providers and service providers impedes the realisation of lighthouse projects and the penetration of further industrial areas with data analysis technologies. Consequently there is a need for an integrated concept to overcome the mentioned obstacles.


Main goal of the project is to enable companies to profitably use data analysis within the own company as well as in value creation networks with partners. For this, an online service platform is developed which covers a solution for comprehensive data integration, easy-to-use, standardized data analysis modules and dashboards and furthermore supports the initiation of new cooperations and business models. In addition, the development and provision of modules for competence level analysis and acquisiton supports a targeted development of employee competencies in the area of Data Analytics.


Procedure and Division of Labour

For the development of a reference architecture and online platform, a structured project plan which contains nine working packages is pursued (see below). At the same time, eight use cases are conducted. This ensures an immediate validation of project results.


Research, Development and Application Partners

The research project AKKORD is developed by a team consisting of 14 partners. RapidMiner GmbH is in the lead of the consortium while the Institute of Production Systems is responsible for project coordination.
