|*This is an IIC testbed currently in progress.*
Fujitsu Limited, Cisco
Manufacturing of complex, composite products (i.e. IT equipment - notebooks, network appliances, etc).
Ability to combine, visualize, and correlate diverse data sources that greatly vary in nature, origin, and lifecycles; Available as a cloud-based service; Support for Manufacturing and Repair process control based on priorities in delivery schedules; Extensibility with enhanced visual rendering tools for process status and flow, product tracking, schedules, and machinery status; Plug-in capabilities for analytics and diagnostics.
The Factory Operations Visibility & Intelligence (FOVI) Testbed makes it possible to simulate a factory environment in order to visualize results that can then be used to determine how the process can be optimized.
The work on FOVI stems from two separate Operations Visibility and Intelligence applications in two factories in Japan: one for notebook computers and another for network appliances. Both use cases have a lot in common with respect to processing data, analytics, and visualization technologies. Ideally they should use a common software foundation while their future evolution requires a more open architecture.
Work on the testbed will be led by Industrial Internet Consortium member Fujitsu Limited with Industrial Internet Consortium founding member, Cisco, collaborating on the in-factory testbed edge infrastructure.
