The next step in utilizing high-tech systems data


React to Effects Fast by Learning, Evaluation, and eXtracted InformatiON

Reflexion project aims at supporting the emerging high-tech industry paradigm shift from selling ‘boxes’ to supporting ‘integrated solutions’, by using operational data to improve the development lifecycles, maintenance and troubleshooting of products. This leads to faster time-to-market, lower costs and greater competitiveness.

Reflexion objectives are
  • Reacting to unforeseen problems or emerging needs in a speedy and cost-effective way by augmenting products with an introspective layer of data sensing and data analytics.

  • Thereby creating value out of the high-tech system’s operational data which for now is still characterized by legacy choices on infrastructural and analytical approaches.

  • Propagating this knowledge (automatically) back into the product development lifecycle and the service & maintenance flow.
