Execon partners and KEX AG reach the next major milestone in their consortium project on “Digitalization in Process Manufacturing – Facing the Smart Future”: the 2nd Project Review Meeting

On June 22, 2017 KEX AG and execon partners will, together with their research partners from the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology, meet in Aachen with the 19 consortium partners from the Process Industries to review the results of Phase II of this project – the so called Technology Cases.


During the review meeting the Technology Cases of nine applications for Industry 4.0 approaches selected by the consortium partners – from “Predictive Process Control” to “Smart Caps” will be presented and discussed. For each Technology Case, aspects of sensors, protocols, information transfer, data base management & security, data analytics and output & actuation will be addressed.


The participants will then select the applications to be further evaluated business cases during Phase III.


The study is comprised of three phases and will go on until Nov. 2017.
