Enterprise 4.0 – challenges of the future
The lower Austrian administration has initiated the project „Enterprise 4.0” to ensure a continuous development of integrated and smart manufacturing throughout the region. Innovative companies will be provided with the necessary services and infrastructure to help them change their way of production. In cooperation with eleven regional businesses, several case studies will be implemented and carried out to further strengthen the industrial location of Lower Austria.
St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences as project partner
The project is put into action by ecoplus, the business agency of lower Austria. The research team Digital Technologies from the Institute for Creative/Media\Technologies provides valuable insights and ressources within the project and will realize the following projects:
In cooperation with Doka the so-called „Datendrehscheibe 4.0“ (“data hub 4.0”) will be developed. This is a mobile application which serves as assistance system and information platform. Maintenance will therefore become more efficient and effective as well as easier for employees.
In cooperation with buntmetall the feasibility and functioning of tool coding and sensoring under conditions of dirt or extreme temperatures will be evaluated.
In collaboration with Novomatic Group „responsive frontends“ for mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets to support various “after sales” processes will be created and evaluated.
