Phase 4: Collaborative Cross-site Engineering

Phase 4 of the testbed deals with the advanced goal of achieving collaborative engineering across factories such as

  • Design of software Plug & Work functions for the deployment of algorithms and data analytics on a remote platform
  • Hybrid simulation/integration testing between multiple components; testing of interfaces for conformance to specifications


Collaboration methods will be designed and implemented for the collaborative cross-site engineering such as simulation and integration testing between multiple components. The Plug & Work scenarios will be extended to the deployment of software algorithms and data analytics.
