CPS4RETAIL - CPS for enabling Cognitive Robotics and Business Process Automation between Retailers and their Suppliers
With higher demand for online shopping due to the Corona crisis, retailers and the supply chain actors have to cope more efficiently with customized products and with ever shorter delivery times. The project aims at closing the gap between online based retailing with the underlying supply chain processes with the overall objective to reduce all non-value-adding processes. The project consists of an experiment which will be implemented in the test and experimentation facility of SSF which already offers adequate business environment. The retailing platform run by SSF will be extended by cognitive ERP functionalities that seamlessly integrate and automatically orchestrate all supply chain processes via CPS-connectors. TTTech will set up an easy-to-implement retrofitting-scenario to establish the required level of interoperability to enable the cognitive ERP functionalities. The gained knowledge will help TTTech to adapt its edge computing IoT platform into use cases relevant to SMEs.
This Application Experiment has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, through an Open Call issued and executed under the project DIH4CPS (Grant Agreement No. 872548).
