Holistic Development of Industrial Big-Data Applications and Services
Speakers: Marcel Dix and Dr. Benjamin Klöpper, ABB
The application of big data and data analytics for optimizing production and mainte- nance processes is one of the most important use cases for industrial IoT. The talk introduces ABB’s development process for data driven services. The development process is essentially organized in four steps: 1. Development of value propositions and deduction of relevant analytical questions 2. Collection, investigation, and preparation of available data 3. Data analysis and model training 4. Roll-out and deployment of Big Data and analytics based services The process is illustrated based on an example from chemical industries, but many aspects can be transferred to other applications.
