Federated Platform Architecture, Integration and Testing

D2.1 BEinCPPS Architecture and Business Processes

The definition and discussion of the architectural approach for the BEinCPPS platform is an important step for the project. This document summarizes the work on the architecture definition: it is the first version of and provides the basis for the implementation of federations of service architectures. The deliverable introduces the BEinCPPS-Platform modular architecture as an instantiation of the BEinCPPS-Arch reference architecture. This modular platform is a composition of the most relevant state of the art software assets into a federation of platforms, according to the project’s original concept and covering the design and development phases, as well as the deployment and operational ones. Therefore, the BEinCPPS architecture melds and tries to harmonize assets covering the whole value chain related to the set-up and operation of manufacturing.

D2.2 - BEinCPPS Architecture & Business Processes

This document reports about the second and final version of BEinCPPS Architecture and Business Processes. In this new version we define a BEinCPPS-specific approach to system design, which is a key element of the overall BEinCPPS value proposition. To this goal, two main aspects are taken into account: changes in the technology landscape occurred after the first release and lessons learned during the implementation and execution of the CPPS experiments.

D2.3 IoT Platform Federation

This deliverable introduces the IoT platform federation of the BEinCPPS architecture that enables capturing data from the shopfloor (field) and provide them to the other levels (factory, cloud), across the different world (real, digital, virtual). The components described in this deliverable constitute the basis for building the experimentation within each champion site. For this reason not only the foreground components developed specifically within the BEinCPPS framework is introduced, but also the background ones inherited from previous FP7 (FIWARE, Fitman), ongoing H2020 projects or provided by BEinCPPS partners.

D2.4 - IoT Platform Federation

Deliverable D2.4 updates and finalizes the work introduced in deliverable D2.3 with respect to the IoT platform federation. The information reported in this deliverable takes into account the significant restructuring and rationalization of the BEInCPPS architecture reported in D2.2. Therefore, as compared to the previous D2.3 version, this document takes into account the outcomes reported in D2.2 and describes the new, or revised, components as compared to the ones reported in D2.3.

D2.5 Future Internet Platform Federation

The Future Internet (FI) Platform represents, together with the Smart Systems Platform and the IoT Platform, the core IT proposition of the BEinCPPS project, around which the five regional champions are going to design their own IT architecture for CPPS business experiments. This document describes the FI Platform as a whole, its software components and their internal integration. It is intended as a guide for system architects and software developers.

D2.6 - FI Platform Federation

Deliverable D2.6 is the second and final release of the Future Internet (FI) Platform prototype. It improves over the first version taking into account deliverable. D3.7 “Technical evaluation, lessons learned, recommendations”.
The document focuses on new or improved components. Additionally Value Added Services (VAS) are described.

D2.7 Smart Systems Platform Federation

This document reports on the individual components identified on the Field Level in the BEinCPPS Reference Architecture. The Field Level is the lowest level in the architecture, encompassing both hardware and software components. Embedded systems (field computation) and real-time networks (field communication) are the two main topics covered on this level. A separation of the components with respect to availability will be presented in the deliverable. A selection of the field level components is available as open source, whereas components coming from industrial companies will be provided as proprietary hardware and on software level only binary versions. Finally, the deliverable provides guidelines and motivation for the potential technology users for selecting and applying the identified technologies in their applications.

D2.8 - Smart Systems Platform Federation

This document reports on the individual foreground component on the Field Level in the Reference Architecture. Embedded systems (field computation, logic) and real-time networks (field communication, wired and wireless) are the two main topics covered on this level.

D2.9 Integrated BEinCPPS platform federation

Aim of this deliverable is to accompany and explain the deployment and testing exercise to prove the correctness of the technical solutions enabling the data flow across the integrated layers. In particular, two integration solutions have been conceived, implemented and tested in order to prove how data can flow across two channels, called the FAST and the SMART Lanes, of the BEinCPPS architecture. The technical integration solutions presented in this document are offered to the Champions that selected and adapted one of them to their specific experiments.

D3.5 Virtual World BEinCPPS Components

The Virtual World includes those components that use data from the real world to create virtual representations of the CPPS-based systems, both at design time and later, when collaborative environments can be created to visualize alternative representations of the production environment and of the product. In the case of the design-time components, that are all desktop applications aimed at being used by engineers to design CPS-based systems and systems of systems, the deployment of the components has been done at Competence Centers (CCs) premises, where these tools have been installed and studied, acquiring competences that are used by the CCs to support the Champions (CHs) in the creation of models of the systems they are going to develop as part of their experiments. CCs, for this first round of experimentations, concentrated their attention on a variety of tools, spamming from high-level design of processes and architectures, to data model design and finally to design of embedded systems that can be executed in the run-time part of the architecture.

D3.6 - Virtual World BEinCPPS Components

This document focusses on the report  of the deployment and experimentation activities on design tools that have been conducted in the last period, both concerning new tools or existing ones, on which the Competence Centers have conducted new experiments or completed running ones.
