The A4BLUE consortium made available a new press release to inform about the results reached during the first year of the project life.
During the first year, partners worked hard to perform the activities planned and achieve the expected results. On one hand, the consortium focused on analysis of user- and high-level requirements and on the definition of the four use case scenarios to gather information about the current state and requirements of candidate processes. On the other hand, the technical partners worked on the Reference Architecture (RA) for the A4BLUE Platform, paving the way to further implementation activities and the validation of the technical solution in the four identified business cases.
Thirdly, a methodology for socio-economically sustainable design of optimal automation levels is being developed in order to connect economic and technical factors with usability and worker satisfaction to evaluate the optimum for adaptive and sustainable workplaces of the future. Additionally, partners started working on the exploitation of the project results performing a stakeholders analysis and an online survey, depicting the standardisation landscape, and developing a market analysis and an initial exploitation plan.
Finally, all partners participated in the dissemination and communication activities, promoting the A4BLUE project in several international events and exhibitions, raising interest among key stakeholders. More details can be found at http://a4blue.eu/results/.
