Digital Twins, Part 3: Cross-Platform Interoperation at the Data Level
There is virtually no limit to what could be done when the data are combined using the right strategies, analytics methods and tools. The results could be both – the desired benefits or undesired consequences adversely affecting privacy, safety, fairness, and overall decisions. In our recent research on designing Digital Twins for IoT lifecycle data…
Just Published “Governance Mechanisms for Federated Digital Platform Ecosystems”
Here is our latest research paper on the design of governance mechanisms for federated digital platform ecosystems. The paper was submitted to the I-ESA 2020 conference. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the conference has been postponed from March 2020 to November 2020. The paper will be published as an open access paper, and…
Just Published “Federated Identity Management and Interoperability for Heterogeneous Cloud Platform Ecosystems”
Our latest research paper presents an approach to designing and implementing a federated identity management and interoperability system for an ecosystem of heterogeneous, cloud-based manufacturing platforms, which is currently being developed in a European research project called eFactory. The paper will be presented in August 26-29, 2019, at the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK, during…
In Search for an Effective Cybersecurity Architecture for Smart Manufacturing Platform Ecosystems
One of our current research projects called the EFPF (European Connected Factory Platform for Agile Manufacturing), www.efpf.org, is about digital manufacturing ecosystems to be established through a federation of cloud-based manufacturing platforms. Prior to entering the EFPF federation, each of the platforms was designed to provide their own security and privacy controls. Platform federation brings…
Webinar on the Future Manufacturing Pathways in Europe
On 15th May 2019, EFFRA (European Factories of the Future Research Association) and representatives of seven FoF (Factories of the Future) and DT (Digitising and Transforming European industry and services) platform projects organised an open webinar on the topic of Future Manufacturing Pathways in Europe. The platforms are NIMBLE, COMPOSITION, DIGICOR and vf-OS from the…
