MEMBERS’ PUBLICATIONS

CECE Digitisation Project: Digitising the Construction Sector: Unlocking the potential of data with a value chain approach

We would like to inform you that CECE published the Final Report of the CECE Digitalisation Project is on their website; it is now available for consultation and download. In February 2018, a consulting team had been tasked with this research, looking at the digitalisation process in the construction value-chain, from the perspective of machinery manufacturers. The project involved multiple data collection tools inserted in a phased methodology: desk research, online questionnaire, expert interviews & case studies. The project was managed by a Steering Committee, which – as part of the value-chain approach – involved representatives of European construction contractors (FIEC) and equipment rental companies (ERA).

Artemis: Embedded Intelligence keeping Europe competitive during the new industrial revolution

On 22 March 2019, ARTEMIS Industry Association released the results of a study into the economic and technical outlook for Embedded Intelligence. Conducted by independent consultant Advancy, this report analyses the EU’s Electronic Components and Systems value chain through a global lens. In doing so, it identifies areas in which further R&D&I investments will be vital in consolidating Europe’s lead or in catching up with other international powerhouses. Currently, the EU is being outspent by the US, China, Japan and (in relation to GDP) South Korea.

AIOTI Report on IoT Relation and Impact on 5G

AIOTI’s Working Group on IoT Standardisation published a report on IoT relation and Impact on 5G. This
report highlights several IoT vertical domain use cases collected by AIOTI (Alliance for IoT Innovation) and determines the specific requirements they impose on the underlying network infrastructure. These use cases and requirements can be used by SDOs (Standards Developing Organizations), such as 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project), ITU-T and IEEE as requirements for automation in vertical domains focusing on critical communications. The full report can be read here.
