ComVantage addresses IoT for Competitive Advantage for Manufacturing in the IoT Week in London

News0 comments

This week ComVantage is being presented in the IoT Week in London by partners from Innovalia and University of Dresden within the “IoT for Manufacturing Enterprises: FP7 achievements and H2020 challenges” and the “Proactive Sensing Enterprise” sessions.

The “IoT for Manufacturing Enterprises: FP7 achievements and H2020 challenges” focuses both on the FP7 achievements and H2020 challenges concerning the adoption of IoT in the Manufacturing domain and on the potential industrial and socio-economic impacts derived from the full take-up of IoT. This session, organized by FITMAN, brings together high level business-technological experts of six of the most relevant FP7 EU funded projects related to IoT and Factories of the Future FoF (i.e., FITMAN, OSMOSE, PROA2SENSE, MSEE, IMAGINE, COMVANTAGE). ComVantage project is being presented by Jens Ziegler (TUD) in “COMVANTAGE and IoT for Competitive Advantage of Manufacturing Industry”.

The “Proactive Sensing Enterprise” session focuses on the concept of the Proactive Sensing Enterprise based on the technologies of the Internet of Things (IoT). Dr. Oscar Lázaro (Innovalia Association), presents ComVantage in “Sensing and Linked Data support for Collaborative Manufacturing Network”.

ComVantage ICT survey results are here!

News0 comments

The ComVantage survey was conducted in September 2013 and was aimed at capturing the potential business impacts of ComVantage technology by empirically assessing the attitudes of various stakeholders in industrial supply chains. Data collected from 318 managers in six European countries shows that Web-based technologies are used more extensively than mobile applications and Web 2.0 technology, with Web 3.0/Semantic Web/Linked Data being the least used Information and Communication Technology (ICT) (although it is used more extensively by technology-oriented organizations).

ComVantage-related ICT is found to have positive effects on all three collaborative capabilities – supplier, customer, and internal – with supplier collaborative capabilities being the most strongly affected. The analysis also indicates that supplier, customer, and internal collaborative capabilities positively affect all six dimensions of business process performance examined – efficiency, flexibility, quality, innovation, cost, and sustainability. Strategic implications on the three tested dimensions of competitive advantage (differentiation, cost leadership, and financial performance) are found for four operational dimensions – innovation, quality, cost, and efficiency. The findings provide a deeper understanding of the potential contribution of the technologies underlying ComVantage to the various stakeholders in industrial supply chains, and they may be used as guidelines in planning and implementing the ComVantage platform to achieve operational and strategic benefits.

Hundreds of visitors participated in the Researches’ night event at Ben-Gurion University, where ComVantage project was presented by BGU team members. Visitors to the ComVantage booth, located in the EU zone of the event, included a diverse audience from all ages. The visitors, mostly the younger ones, were interested in the technological aspects of ComVantage infrastructure as well as the process capabilities enabled by the platform. For example a fourteen year old junior high school student wondered if the ‘cloud’ he hears so much about is used by the platform. A special interest was shown in the potential adaptation of ComVantage platform to specific business needs and its expected organizational benefits. For example, a construction manager asked if the ComVantage platform could help him cut down operational costs by supporting direct interaction with suppliers.

The ComVantage presentation of the Linked Data Editing tool OntoSketch won the Best Demo Award at iKNOW in Graz

Partners from ComVantage participated in i-Know 2013 giving a presentation on: ‘OntoSketch: Towards Digital Sketching as a Tool for Creating and Extending Ontologies for Non-Experts’, winning the Best Demo Award!. In fact, they presented in this event the Linked Data Editing tool OntoSketch, which allows for visualisation and interactive extension of RDF/OWL ontologies. It uses a limited expressivity to offer ontology engineering features also to non-expert users.

I-KNOW is a top-tier international conference in the areas of knowledge management and knowledge computing. Since 2001, i-KNOW has developed into the crystallization point for different disciplines of knowledge computing, such as knowledge discovery, knowledge analysis, knowledge visualization, social computing, mobile computing, context-aware computing, etc. This year, it has been celebrated from 4-6 September in Graz.

Apart from that, ComVantage was also represented in this event by Dr. Conny Weber who gave a presentation on “Using mobile technology for inter-organizational collaboration and end-customer integration”.
