The EGIDA (Estrategia de Gestión e Intervención Digital Aumentada – in English Augmented Digital Intervention and Management Strategy) research project is driven by the consortium of companies Integral Software Factory, Integral Innovation Experts, Zayer, Ona Electroerosion, Industrias Puigjaner and Industrias David. Integral Software Factory is the leader of the project and provides the main base technologies.
This research project seeks to respond to the needs of Spanish SMEs manufacturers of industrial products of ETO (Engineer to Order) typology, which address the challenge of corporate adoption of Servitization as a mechanism of excellence, with which to have a differential advantage, in a growing and competitive market that allows, in turn, to have a recurring and sustainable income, beyond the initial transactional sale. This challenge entails the implementation of internal management mechanisms aimed at having a Digital Twin, which gathers and concentrates the complete disciplinary knowledge (mechanical, electrical/electronic and software) and vital (IIoT data, customer updates) of its unique products.
The main objective of the project is to investigate the application of Digital Thread techniques for the digitization and integral interconnection of tools, products and processes in the SME of semi-customized capital goods. This will allow automating customer response processes, in an agile and economical way, having an integrated system as a platform for the deployment of advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Extended Visualization (RV-RA) services and solutions.
As a result of the research project, the complete digitalization of products and processes is expected to be achieved, bringing all stages of development, manufacturing, sales and after-sales service into the digital world. This not only reduces product development and manufacturing time and costs, but also assists people in the decision-making process by providing them with a complete overall picture of the products and processes.
The aim is to deploy the first Machine Learning, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (VR-RA) solutions based on the twin strategy and digital manufacturing process.
The project started last year 2021 will last 3 years and has the collaboration of the Centro de Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial (CDTI) that provides European funds subsidizing 1,666,663.75€ out of a total budget of 2,343,652.00€. The objective of this public entity is to promote innovation and technological development of Spanish companies.
This project is part of the MISSIONS program of the Center for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) and will be made possible thanks to European funds allocated to the national Recovery and Resilience Mechanism.
