CREMA is a platform that provides mechanisms and tools to manufacturers to present, advertise, sell, and lease their manufacturing services. In order to do this, manufacturing services need to be abstracted and virtualized - Virtualization provides means to interact with those services.
In June 2017, the Project started the last 6 months of the three years duration after the development of 2 years and a half. The Project is centralized in the Industry 4.0 tendency where Fagor Arrasate has compromised with the objective to design and develop a platform in the cloud that will allow a better efficiency of the maintenance process and machine manufacturing by using the “Cloud Manufacturing” concept.
Stemming from research conducted within the CREMA project, a paper on moderated resource elasticity for stream processing applications will be presented at the International Workshop on Autonomic Solutions for Parallel and Distributed Data Stream Processing.
Amidst the noise within the drive to Industry 4.0, a strategy is forming amongst enlightened businesses. As increasingly market leaders align their products to I4.0 or 4IR (4th Industrial Revolution) as its becoming known in the UK, how can you separate the marketing spin from the game changing technology?
Clutch Brakes, gear boxes, indexing units, Goizper S. Coop. product, are Mechanical components installed within different kind of machines. This production machines are designed to produce continuously and unplanned downtimes costs a high amount of money. These components are the key part of some of the mentioned machines and the relevant component’s health influences directly in the machine.
As increasingly market leaders align their products to I4.0 or 4IR (4th Industrial Revolution) as its becoming known in the UK, how can you separate the marketing spin from the game changing technology. Join us at the Waterton Centre, on May 25th for a free event to see Industry 4.0 in action

In February, Christoph Hochreiner has presented the research paper "VISP Testbed - A Toolkit for Modeling and Evaluating Resource Provisioning Algorithms for Stream Processing Applications" at the 9th ZEUS Workshop.
Like everything in the life, manufacturing processes are in constant evolution. Of course not all processes will suffer a variation along its life but most of them will have fine-tuning or even complete redesign because they have become obsolete.
CREMA enables and supports the customers in defining and executing inter-organisational manufacturing processes. Moreover, the CREMA platform not only supports the customer during the design of the manufacturing processes, but also during the selection of the optimal services for the single process tasks.
Business process monitoring is one of the best ways to increase flexibility and respond more rapidly to changing markets. The actual market forces enterprises to track these changes in real-time so that they can react to the real needs.
Last week saw the successful Industrial Workshop event in Hernani, Spain. This Industrial workshop, organised by CREMA and C2NET H2020 EU projects, presented future trends of European Industry especially those related to digitalization technologies applied to manufacturing
For the optimisation of service-based manufacturing processes at design time, CREMA developed an innovative solution ODERU that integrates pattern-based semantic process service composition planning with QoS-based constraint optimisation problem solving
The paper “Resource Provisioning for IoT Services in the Fog” and “Cost-Efficient Data Redundancy in the Cloud” were accepted to the 9th IEEE International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing and Applications (SOCA 2016) that will take place in Macau, China, in November 2016.
In the paper “CDM-Core: A Manfuacturing Domain Ontology in OWL2 for Production and Maintenance",
the authors from DFKI present the largest publicly available manufacturing ontology CDM-Core in the
standard formal ontology language OWL2. The CDM-Core ontology covers the CREMA use case domains
of metal press maintenance and automative exhaust production, and makes use of many relevant
standard vocabularies and ontologies, with only about one fifth of its size being CREMA use case specific.
Research accomplished within CREMA has led to the acceptance of a paper that was presented at the 7th International Workshop on Enterprise Modeling and Information Systems Architectures in September 2016.
At the end of September, Christoph Hochreiner has presented the research paper "Bridging Gaps in Cloud Manufacturing with 3D Printing" at the Additive Fertigung/3D Druck – Technologie, Auswirkungen und Chancen Workshop of the 46th Annual Meeting of the German Informatics Society.
At the beginning of September, Christoph Hochreiner has presented the research paper "VISP: An Ecosystem for Elastic Data Stream Processing for the Internet of Things" at the 20th edition of the IEEE Enterprise Computing Conference.
A paper stemming from research conducted within the CREMA Cloud Manufacturing Process and Optimisation Framework components of CREMA has been accepted ath the 9th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing, which will be held in December 2016 in Shanghai, China.
FAGOR ARRASATE takes part in the European Project CREMA for preventing failures in the machines. The CREMA Project (Cloud-based Rapid Elastic Manufacturing)searches the development of control systems that, capturing data on time and analyzing them simultaneously, allow forecast failures in the machine-tools in order to take corrective actions in advance
As work continues in Waterton to develop and implement the Automotive Use-case test environments, Control 2K as a member of TANet continues to develop their IndustreWeb 4.0 platform to incorporate the CREMA components and packages.
At the end of June, Christoph Hochreiner has presented the research paper "Elastic Stream Processing for the Internet of Things" to an interested international audience at the 9th edition of the IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing. The presentation initiated fruitful discussions and may trigger future research collaborations with international research institutions, especially regarding the usage of Cloud resources to process (industrial) IoT data.
From the beginning cloud technologies were frequently exposed to criticism in terms of security and privacy. The most important question was – Will the customer ever accept storing private data in the cloud – a non-local storage? The answer is yes!
June sees project partner TU Vienna play host to the latest Plenary meeting. Over the three day agenda topics covered included further definition of the business model and exploitation planning, along with the schedule for dissemination activities for the next 12 months.
CREMA was present at the Hannover industrial fair this year within the framework of a workshop held at a conference room located in the centre of the Hannover Fair. The workshop was organized by the Resilient Production Networks Cluster which is composed of four H2020 EU projects CREMA, FLEXINET, MANSYS and ROBUST planet.
The general scenario of cloud manufacturing and insights into the functionalities of CREMA were presented at the International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Production Systems in Vienna, and at the Workshop on Resilient Production Networks in Guimarães.
With increasing automation in the manufacturing domain, more and more data is becoming available that needs to be properly managed and thoroughly analysed to be able to gain valuable insight into manufacturing activities. The Manufacturing Big Data, Knowledge and Analytics component (BDA) in the CREMA project has been designed to exactly address this issue.
Research conducted within CREMA has led to the acceptance of two papers to be presented at the workshop on Intelligent Systems Configuration Services for Flexible Dynamic Global Production Networks (FLEXINET) at the International Conference on Interoperability for Enterprise Systems and Applications (I-ESA 2016).
