The Renault Group and Atos, a digital transformation company has launched ID@scale (Industrial Data @ Scale), a new service for industrial data collection to support manufacturing companies in their digital journey towards Industry 4.0.
ID@S (Industrial Data @ Scale) will enable manufacturers to collect and structure data from industrial equipment at scale to improve operational excellence and product quality.
Initiated by Renault and already in operation within its factories, ID@scale is now industrialised, modularised and commercialised by the digital leader Atos. During production, manufacturers generate enormous amounts of data but due to diversity and lack of standardization, as well as operator shortages, data is generally underutilized.
By adopting ID@S, manufacturers will be enabled to collect data from a wide range of manufacturing facilities (diverse suppliers, generations, global locations, firmware updates, etc.) in a standardised and effective manner, which is then contextualised and made available in the cloud.
In turn, the data improves production processes and product quality immediately. Simple analytical tools and dashboards with easy access to standardized data facilitate and accelerate the deployment of many types of use cases (production, maintenance, quality, and energy, etc.), including net zero benefits, the companies said in a press release.
Jose-Vicente de los Mozos, EVP Group Industry, Renault Group said,“ Renault Group has developed a unique technology solution to collect large-scale manufacturing data to improved performance of our production tools and therefore the quality of our vehicles. Through our collaboration with Atos, we will go one step further in commercialising our expertise as we support manufacturing sector organizations in the scale-up of their digital transformation.”
“In a market with no equivalent solution, Atos modularises and enhances Renault Group’s initial solution for all manufacturing sectors, on a worldwide basis. By joining forces, Atos and Renault Group are enabling organizations to effectively collect data from their plants to leverage information on a large-scale basis and successfully scale-up and accelerate their digital manufacturing transformation,.” added Rakesh Khanna, Head of Digital, Atos.
