The project aims to increase the automation of the company through a communication infrastructure between MES and machinery for the continuous data collection, a fundamental element of a production plant in view of industry 4.0.
The main objective of the project is to develop a machinery interconnection architecture. The architecture will be:
• Independent from the characteristics of the single machine;
• easily configurable;
• extendable to a number of machines not established in advance;
• easily interfaceable with the MES;
• predisposed to the connection in cloud and to the possible exploitation of innovative computing technologies for servers with advanced performances.
