Optimising the communication of machine tools (Smart Services World I technology programme)

The project "SePiA.Pro" develops a service platform for the intelligent utilization of sensor and order data of modern production plants. The core elements of utilising this data are "smart services" that enable detailed regulation, control, optimisation and behaviour prediction of individual components and complete production systems. These smart services also help to optimise the flexibility of production processes.
