The Engineering Business Intelligence project kicked off!
EBI is part of the Industry 4.0 innovation program, lead by ISPT (Institute for Sustainable Process Technology) and Radboud University.
EBI aims to take the scope, the quality and the impact of data collection, data analytics and data visualization to a new level in the process industry. This brings about potential savings of 5-25% in energy consumption for existing process installations.
EBI will bring a digital operations and management assistant (DOMA) to the process industry that will predict and thereby reduce the environmental impact of process faults within economically (more) profitable boundaries.
The consortium participants kicked off the four-year project at the offices of ISPT in The Netherlands.

HAI smart4industries participates in the EBI project as an innovative supplier of hai-app: the off-the-shelve cloud software platform for (big) data collection and interactive dashboarding. It also enables data science activities using for instance SAS Analytics.
HAI: “The EBI project is a perfect opportunity to co-operate with universities and domain expert suppliers to deliver practical innovative solutions that drive sustainability goals.”
The EBI consortium consists of a wide variety of academia, end-users and technology developers, including Radboud Universiteit, Wageningen University & Research, Avans, Cosun, Dow, Huntsman, ToPerform Smart Solutions, Energy-IO, Vertoro, HAI, RHDHV, WCM, Cinop-ECBO, Mobatec, KPI Solutions, Berry Global, RIWA-Rijn, Comon-Invent and ISPT.
Together, the members discussed the next steps in creating this new, digital method to detect how sub-optimal process operation measured within the process data affects sustainability, quality and economic value of the process to provide input in mitigation and consequently leverage economics with environmental performance.
The consortium aims to take the scope, quality and impact of data collection, data analytics and data visualization to a new level in the process industry. We use human-centred design methods and replicate and exploit the insights to practitioners and scientists.
Serving leading multinational Food and Chemicals companies in many countries, HAI is recognized as a leading partner for digital transformation for predictive production and quality. Applications from hai-app vary from straightforward data collection and digitization activities to the development and practical application of Advanced Process Control features.
Within de EBI project, HAI will provide the cloud data-collection platform and the real-time interactive end-user dashboards.Those dashboards include facilities for manual data entry and user-interaction with statistical models in the background.
More information on the EBI-project can be found on the website of the Institute for Sustainable Process Technology.
