“The European project will make a major contribution to keeping and strengthening production and jobs in Europe, thus contributing to a stronger business and technology location”, said Sabine Herlitschka, Chief Executive Officer of Infineon Austria. The “Pilot Room Industry 4.0“ set up in Villach offers ideal conditions for trying out new manufacturing processes in real time operation.

Secure data traffic within and outside of factories plays a key role. In this regard the project’s aim is to develop processes that ensure secure communication between globally connected systems with different features, for example in terms of age, operating system or interfaces. Thanks to the early identification of risks from malware, the potential impacts on production should be drastically reduced. 

Another major focus is the development of dynamic simulations. They enable production to be planned more exactly and efficiently, as well as quality, capacity utilization and cycle times to be improved.

Social impact on the jobs of the future

SemI4.0 will also research the social impact on the jobs of the future: Industry 4.0 will change work functions and qualifications of employees in the long run. The requirements of future job profiles need to already be taken into account now. They increasingly entail system-oriented working and necessitate training and qualification measures that reflect the changes in production processes. As a result of these further developments, SemI40 will help secure more than 20,000 jobs at the companies involved. The project partners have a total of around 300,000 employees worldwide.
