PROFILE experiment aims demonstrating the potential for design and manufacturing by exploiting Knowage tool and Orion Context Broker to implement the industrial feedback loop through the whole clothing product life. The experiment is related to Smart Product reference scenario. Cross border experimentation have been carried out in collaboration with VTT Technical Research Center for Real Time Stream Data Analytics.
The obtained results demonstrated that experiment had success and it is possible to offer a business service to clothing designers in order to reduce the collection failures.
PROFILE experiment has led to the implementation of a real time delivery of the 3 levels of simulation required to support the design a new clothing collection on the basis of i-Deal services: current design VS present consumers (reference success rate of present product), new design VS present consumers (simulated success of the new collection), new design VS new target consumers (simulated success rate of new collection in a new market).
The real time release of the results of them has removed a significant bottleneck to i-Deal service exploitation, which will start from its established customers: Piacenza (active in the field of traditional clothing), Sparco (sport technical apparel) and Grassi (worker protection clothing).
Demonstrated the technical feasibility the additional efforts required will be focuses on the creation of the proper user interface, in the first period dedicated to the internal operators of i-deal to better define and test them. In a second time they will be adapted for the eventual direct use by customers designers.
