Industry 4.0 CPPSprocessAssist
Fasihi is involved in a research project that is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, whose aim is to develop an assistance system for the process industry. Led by the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation in Magdeburg and GESA Automation GmbH, the research consortium has a total of eight partners.
We provide digital solutions for optimal knowledge transfer and fast online access to important data from installations at production facilities – including checklists, instructions, and recommendations that can be used to develop procedures for doing rounds and correcting faults.
The solutions make it possible to reduce unplanned technical downtimes and automate numerous processes for maintenance and upkeep work. The resulting greater utilization of the installations leads directly to an improved bottom line. What's more, the operators can avoid inefficient startup and shutdown processes, improving energy and resource efficiency.
The target for the end of the project: the machines will send fault notifications via their sensors, which give users recommended actions to correct the fault, including system documentation. Machines and people will be considered and integrated systematically, turning the vision of Industry 4.0 into reality.
