Draft Project plan for the CEN and CENELEC Workshop on 'Data-driven management of production processes'

The planned CEN and CENELEC Workshop intends to develop a CEN and CENELEC Workshop Agreement (CWA) describing a 'Methodology for the data-driven management of production processes', which allows to document the process lifecycle and gain knowledge through its application.

The objectives of this methodology involve:

  • Structured documentation of data related to observed parameters, materials, and the physical infrastructure equipment used in processes.
  • Data acquisition, which facilitates collection of measured data.
  • Data analysis, for extracting insights through charts or dashboards.
  • Simulation capabilities, enabling the execution of models to anticipate outcomes before production initiation.

The methodology is preferably to be integrated into an information system that offers the aforementioned capabilities. It also serves as a communication tool, fostering collaboration between stakeholders, such as producers and customers. However, the CWA will not impose any specific technological framework for this system.


The CWA is intended to be used by industries characterized by the presence of production processes or engineering consultancies working with them. For instance, manufacturing of materials or products, water and waste treatment, and valorisation of subproducts, etc.


The kick-off meeting will be held on Thursday, 11 April 2024, from 14:00-16:00 CET as a web meeting.

Requests to participate in the Workshop and/or comments on the project plan are to be submitted by 2024-03-30 to futrilla@une.org1. You are kindly requested to use the commenting form below.
