Infrastructure - CRD ACopyright: © Dr. Martin Riedel
The objective of CRD-A is to develop an infrastructure for the IoP considering functional, physical and conceptual perspective for Digital Shadows in Production. The physical infrastructure to supports the distributed multi-agent model executions and dataflows with high performance, reliability, safety and security in distributed communication networks. Furthermore, the infrastructure must consistently manage the Digital Shadow as a knowledge graph of heterogeneous data stores and agents, offering formal mappings between them and generate code for efficient data integration and exchange. Within the functional perspective, the IoP is regarded as a network of production-specific “data to knowledge pipelines”, which demand novel combinations of data-driven learning algorithms and physical or simulation models to transform massive data amounts via a Digital Shadow to instances of formal models, and turn these into actions that, together with context changes, create new data.
