Hyperconnected architecture for high cognitive production plants – HyperCOG

In the HyperCOG project, 2.-0 LCA leads the life cycle assessment of the environmental, social and economic impacts of industrial digitalisation for three case studies.

The client

Horizon 2020 – European Union

Our role

2.-0 LCA is in charge of evaluating the environmental, social and economic consequences of the introduction of cognitive manufacturing technologies in the industrial case studies.

Hyperconnected architecture for high cognitive production plants

EU manufacturing companies are facing increasingly competitive and dynamic markets. To compete in the modern world, companies in the process industry need highly flexible manufacturing environments, capable of continuously adapting to changing conditions by means of advanced technologies and decision-making processes that take advantage of big data in real-time. Enterprises need to harness the knowledge held within their data streams to become more energy and resource-efficient while improving safety and lowering their environmental impact.

Cognitive manufacturing refers to a new manufacturing paradigm where machines are fully connected through wireless networks, monitored by sensors, and controlled by advanced computational intelligence to fine-tune product quality, optimise performance and sustainability, and reduce costs.
