MIDIH – Energy-efficient Cement Production
Within the Project MIDIH (Manufacturing Industry Digital Innovation Hubs), producing SMEs are supported with ICT services.
The goal of the CEMTEC-FIWARE project was to implement a FIWARE-based condition monitoring and expert system platform at the CEMTEC cement milling pilot plant in Enns, Austria.
A system has been put in place that automatically records process measurements and operator set-points during batch-production in a cloud database.
LCM developed methods and tools for data analysis and the concept of a physics based and data driven expert system and prepared for future deployment.
Once enough production data is collected, this expert system can be calibrated with it; it will then suggest set-points to the pilot-plant operators, with the aim of these set-points being optimal for energy efficient cement production.
