Smart Factory Reference Architecture

The Smart Factory reference architecture organises the FIWARE assets to support the development of shopfloor intelligence enhancing physical processes. FIWARE enables more efficient, flexible and safe shopfloor by supporting machine-vs-machine and human-vs-machine convergence. It builds on top of FIWARE’s Internet-of-Things (IoT) Service Enablement Chapter.
The Smart Platform aims at enhancing physical processes and at enabling a more efficient, flexible and safe shopfloor by supporting machine-vs-machine and human-vs-machine convergence. It builds on top of FIWARE’s Internet-of-Things (IoT) Service Enablement Chapter. Two FITMAN SEs have been added to the five GEs selected from the FIWARE Core Platform, extending the data capture mechanisms of the IoT Chapter to RFID tags and to wireless sensor networks (SDC - Shopfloor Data Collection), and improving its event distribution mechanism (SEM - Secure Event Management). Below is a diagram showing the relationship between these collaborating components.
