ECSEL Productive4.0 (Electronics and ICT as enabler for digital industry and optimized supply chain management covering entire lifecycle)


The main objective of Productive4.0 is to achieve significant improvement in digitalising the European industry by means of electronics and ICT. Ultimately, the project aims at suitability for everyday application across all industrial sectors up to TRL8. It addresses various industrial domains with one single approach, that of digitalisation. What makes the project unique is the holistic system approach of consistently focusing on the three main pillars: digital production, supply chain networks and product lifecycle management. This is part of the new concept of introducing seamless automation and network solutions as well as enhancing the transparency of data, their consistence, flexibility and overall efficiency. Currently, such a complex project can only be realised in ECSEL. Representing over 100 relevant partners from 19 EU-member states and associated countries, it is a European project, indeed. The Norwegian consortium of Productive4.0 will focus on a use-case in chemical production. We will apply and develop frameworks and components for Industrial Internet of Things. The components will be of both hardware and software. We will also apply and enhance simulation and machine learning for improved production based on technical automation and seamless collaboration with the human operators.
