Defining a Collaborative Platform to Report Machine State
Nowadays, we are seeing the evolution of Industry, and with it, the development of technological solutions that can assure sustainability and competitiveness in the manufacturing environment. Along this evolution, Cyber Physical Systems were developed with the goal to merge both physical and computational processes and to allow predictive, proactive and collaborative maintenance of industrial machines. The work here presented has been integrated in the Cyber Physical System based Proactive Collaborative Maintenance (MANTIS) project and has the main goal of proposing a collaborative platform to report current machine state. This way, it will be possible to facilitate and support the interaction between all stakeholders that will participate in the collaborative decision-making process. With this approach we believe to be possible to reduce machine down-time and the unnecessary waste of machine components and workhand while attempting to solve different machine problems.
