InDEx – Industrial Data Excellence

September 10, 2019

The Industrial Data Excellence, DIMECC InDEx –  program is the first program initiative under the Intelligent Industry ecosystem. The vision of the InDEx-program is to unlock the value of data as an enabler for the next industrial revolution centered around artificial intelligence in the Finnish manufacturing industry.

Unlocking the value of data is much more than one enterprise making better use of their existing data. It requires that the entire industry will operate all through the intelligent use and sharing of data. InDEx-program will take this unique perspective and opportunity focusing on data sharing in manufacturing networks between multiple partners.

Currently only a fraction of the value of data has been captured in manufacturing sector and for this reason InDEx (Industrial Data Excellence) aims to build a data community and Common Data Space for industry in Finland. This requires effective data sharing, including adequate analytics, between the value network partners. The InDEx-program drives effective data sharing between value network partners with the aim to unlock the value of data in the manufacturing sector.

The Common Data Space defines tested and verified rules and methods as well as practicalities for data sharing in manufacturing networks.

Three strategic targets:

1. DRIVE FINNISH INDUSTRIAL DATA COMMUNITY
Common Data Space drives the establishment of Finnish Industrial Data Community, a network of actors utilizing Common Data Space.

2. NOVEL VALUE CREATION
Common Data Space forms the basis for novel data ecosystems opening new value creation possibilities for all the value chain partners.

3. INTERNATIONAL & SCALABLE
Common Data Space will leverage existing and emerging standards and technologies and drive international standards for data sharing.

THIS IS JOINT PATH TOWARDS DATA ECONOMY!

PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS

Industrial partners

Aalto University, Tampere University , University of  Turku, University of Helsinki, University of Jyväskylä, University of Vaasa and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.

Facilitation and funding partners

The InDEx-program is funded by the companies and Business Finland.  DIMECC facilitates and organizes program realisation.

PROGRAM STRUCTURE:

The program work will be driven by two industry led application domains: smart chain and smart factory. The application domains form the full chain of operations for smart manufacturing, full digitalized industrial practices with connectivity in the entire value chain between smart equipment, facilities, products and processes.
