Future manufacturing system need to be more flexible to embrace tougher and constantly changing market demands.  They also need to make better use of plant-data, ideally using all data from the entire plant. Low-level data should be refined to real-time information for decision-making, to facilitate competitiveness thought informed and timely decisions. The Line Information System Architecture (LISA), is designed to enable flexible factory integration and data utilisation. The result is a new architecture, that enables flexibility and scalability. The architecture is event based, has formalised transformation patterns and uses stram-based aggregation and prototype-oriented information models.

The project Line Information System Architecture 2 – Smart event-driven services (LISA2), will deliver industrial-ready services – enabling Swedish industry to understand and tune their factories. Producing the future vehicles in safe and environmentally sustainable way requires handling of an increasing number of data during manufacturing.

This project is a continuation of the VINNOVA-FFI-LISA project. LISA has delivered and validated a modern flexible and scalable event driven architecture able to implement collection and fusion of data from different automatic production sources with a granularity level that stretch down to the single sensor. This provides, in principle, the possibility to mine and parse data across the different layers of manufacturers’ ICT infrastructure, independently from predefined control logic constraints. LISA also preliminary investigated the transformation of data in meaningful information and the relative visualization.

The main purpose of the LISA2 project, is to leverage on the LISA project, and realize a full industrial implementation. LISA2 will produce a set of demonstrators, both in industry and academia, to validate the practical embodiment of the services produced and the knowledge enhancement in the road towards production cyber physical system enabling fast integration, reconfigurability and scalability of automatic production resources. The results are expected to be of very large significance for OEM as well as suppliers in Sweden in respect of efficient as well as appropriate information handling.
