ABSTRACT

An Italian company producing systems for air conditioning, heating, refrigeration and water, is looking for Building Information Modeling software solutions, at a minimum TRL 5, for the digitalisation, standardization and integrated management of the production process, and enabling the prefabrication of industrial plants. Partners will act under technical cooperation agreement. This request is part of an open innovation challenges programme.


FULL DESCRIPTION

An Italian company has been designing, building and servicing mechanical and electrical systems for air conditioning, heating and refrigeration systems, as well as water and sanitation systems, for over 50 years. It operates mainly in three sectors: facility management, global service and energy management.

The company has an important objective: moving towards prefabrication of industrial plants by standardising the production process. This change can be enabled by the adoption of both hardware and software solutions for the digitalisation and integrated management of the various company’s industrial process phases.

Therefore the company is looking for technological solutions based on Building Information Modeling software (BIM) which would act as the basis of the new production process.

The company is interested in collaborating with start-ups or scale-ups, from all over the world, to co-design a proof of concept (PoC) or co-develop a pilot project, under technical cooperation agreement.


--- IMPORTANT: This technical cooperation request refers to an open innovation challenges program published on a separate online platform (b2match). If an organization expresses interest before the program closing date, it will be guided towards the open innovation platform.

During registration, interested organizations will be asked to select the challenge that corresponds with this technology request profile. If admitted to the programme, start-ups and scale-ups will benefit from training and will be able to create their (presentation) profile to connect with the companies in order to organize 1to1 matchmaking meetings.

The company will select the organisations that they would like to meet for the development of the solution.

The challenge closes on November the 30th 2021. Once the challenge is closed, expressions of Interest for this technology request will be treated in the traditional way.


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: The Italian company is looking for the prefabrication of industrial plants by standardising the production process through the adoption of hardware and software solutions for the digitalisation and integrated management of the various process steps:
i) spatial measuring of the physical space,
ii) design of the plant in all its various aspects,
iii) construction of the prefabricated plant.

The company is therefore looking for a Building Information Modeling software (BIM), which would act as the basis of the new production process.

The solutions proposed should have a minimum TRL of 5 - component and/or breadboard validation in relevant environment – and upwards.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: Potential partners are start-ups or scale-ups from any country, offering Building Information Modeling software (BIM) enabling the standardization of the industrial plant production process. The solution offered should be a combined hardware and software solution, and it should help the company to move towards the prefabrication of industrial plants.

Start-ups and scale-ups are required to propose their ideas.

Suitable companies are invited to propose their expertise. After being selected, the goal is to collaborate in the co-design of a proof of concept (PoC) or co-development of a pilot project, under technical cooperation agreement.
