Within this project the heavy industry will be considered as user group, especially the metal industry. Manufacturing enterprises and their production processes need to become more flexible, in order to be able to respond to the increased requirements related to the product quality and variety.

Finally the employees make the decisions, along the entire value-adding chain and in the various hierarchy levels, which influence the production process and the production planning and ensure the economic success. A secure, transparent and real-time provision of production- and process data will become more and more important for those decisions.

This data must be offered to the staff to the work support in a simple, reliable and intuitive way. It is the context in which the data is needed which has to be automatically detected and considered. The role of the user as well as the respective production situation and production location must therefore be recognized and evaluated.

Project's aim:

The aim is to develop new scenarios, associated processes and new operating concepts, to support the employees on the basis of new, flexible, adaptive and mobile technologies.


celano is a software service provider for the industry of customized software projects since its foundation in 2002, mainly for the metal industry. The developing and implementation of process control systems and factory data acquisition, warehouse management, workflow optimisations and guidance system for furnaces, as a link between the automatization level and the production planning layer, represents the key elements of the product range. For the successful realization, celano has the necessary in-depth knowledge of the production processes and production conditions in the prominent companies of the metal industry.

The Hochschule Ruhr West (HRW) is a young university that specializes primarily in research and development as well as teaching in the MINT area. The HRW is firmly integrated into the region as a partner of regional and supraregional industrial partners. In the project, HRW will contribute its expertise in software development and architecture as well as contextualization, image recognition and augmented reality. In addition, the social aspects of the project are also covered by HRW.
