The main goal of the ‘digital mapping framework’ is to have a solid structured approach for describing and analysing solutions and approaches to digitalisation of manufacturing, including the deployment of digital manufacturing platforms.

The mapping framework is comprehensive set of comprehensive structured lists, which also lays the foundation of a ‘structured glossary’.  These lists where eventually integrated in the structured Wiki (see picture below) of the EFFRA Innovation portal, such that the collection and sharing of information about R&D projects, demonstrators and use cases is more structured and accessable.

The mapping framework addresses questions such as:

  • Which technologies and approaches are supporting the deployment of integrated digital manufacturing platforms?
  • What are the services that they deliver?
  • What are the standards that support these platforms?

Existing structures or frameworks contributed to this structure, for example the RAMI 4.0 Reference Architecture Model Industrie 4.0 or work done by other FoF related projects, European and regional initiatives.
The digital mapping framework or structured Wiki is an essential component for the sharing of information about project, demonstrators, solutions, etc.
