To Accelerate Industry 4.0 and to Collect Large-scale Manufacturing Data, Renault Group and Atos Launches a Unique Service

Renault Group | June 29, 2022

A strategic partnership to develop and commercialize a one-of-a-kind technology solution for collecting and analysing manufacturing data on a large scale. A new step toward industry digitalization is being taken by improving the operational performance of manufacturing equipment, resulting in higher productivity, fewer defects, and lower energy consumption. This collaboration takes advantage of Renault Group's expertise and experience in digitalizing its manufacturing activities, as well as Atos' expertise as a key player in manufacturing digital transformation and consulting. 28 June 2022, Boulogne-Billancourt and Paris - ID@scale (Industrial Data @ Scale) is a new service for industrial data collection launched by Renault Group and Atos to assist manufacturing companies on their digital journey to Industry 4.0. Manufacturers will be able to collect and structure data from industrial equipment at scale using "ID@S" (Industrial Data @ Scale) to improve operational excellence and product quality. Manufacturers generate a massive amount of data throughout the manufacturing process. Data is frequently underutilized due to its diversity and lack of standardization, as well as operator time constraints. Access to standardized data via simple analytical tools and dashboards facilitates and accelerates the deployment of many different types of use cases (production, maintenance, quality, and energies, for example), including net zero benefits. Renault Group's IT, digital, and engineering teams created this solution to capture data from its manufacturing facilities as part of the company's digital transformation strategy. Data is collected and structured in a standardized manner for each type of manufacturing process, allowing a wide range of use cases in manufacturing, engineering, quality, CSR, logistics, and so on to be addressed. This solution is now being implemented on a large scale across twenty-two Renault Group plants. Over 7,500 pieces of equipment are linked, with standardized data models representing over 50 different manufacturing processes. Finally, the partnership is supported by the Group's Consulting and Services teams to market, deploy, and support the "as a service" solution worldwide, enabling rapid and agile deployment of new connectivity, data models, analytics, and insights for a customer within a few weeks.
