Last week, Andries and Ludo took part in the first plenary meeting of the KRISTINA project on behalf of Almende. KRISTINA poses a big challenge for Almende: different partners are viewing the project from their own scientific goals, while Brussels aims more for concrete results. Almende has the unique position to connect these two opposite objectives. It was a tough, but productive meeting, which has clarified the role of each partner. To find out more about the goals of KRISTINA, check out the website.
Yesterday, Giovanni attended the final review of the ARUM-project on behalf of Almende.The ARUM project aims to improve planning and control systems for complex, small-lot products manufacturing, such as aircraft, aircraft interiors, and ships. ARUM proposes to develop an intelligent Enterprise Service-Based platform (i-ESB). The platform will integrate a service-based architecture with a knowledge-based Multi-Agent System. The i-ESB platform will gather information from sources such as sensors and resource management systems, giving decision makers and planners better insight into and control over the design-to-production process. Also, time-, cost- and risk-analysis will take place within the platform. The project had a successful ending. During the final review there was a lot of praise for consortium's results and tool integration. Afterwards, we celebrated with some Belgian chocolates Giovanni brought back from Brussels.
