[artisan RSS] [04/11/2016]  The final public report "Time for Energy Efficiency in Textiles SMEs" has been published by the SET project; the report provides insight of what has been achieved and what will be pursued by textile companies of 12 countries in the near future. 

[02/11/2016]  SET Web allows users to forecast the energy consumption of (some) spinning or weaving machines thanks to a forecasting model set up by DITF in collaboration with ENEA in the SET project.  [Vedi il DEMO]

[03/10/2016]  Video was published about Euratex, Marzotto Group and ENEA round table meeting on SET project outcomes at Premiere Vision, September 15th 2016, Smart Talk Square, Paris. 

[02/09/2016]  First SET workshop in France, organised by Techtera (Technical Textile Rhone-Alpes), the workshop will introduce the SET Scheme for energy efficiency in textile industry, a free tool for SMEs for self analysis of energy uses and benchmarking.  [info]

[04/07/2016]  Emilia-Romagna Region launches the Fashion Valley: from Piacenza to Rimini, a supply chain of 30.000 firms. The aim is to structure the fourth economical pillar of the regional economy after food, motor and wellness. In the fashion sector, in the region, there are more than 7200 firms (near to 30.000 with the enlarged supply chain), 55.000 employees (142.000 with the enlarged supply chain), 4.7 billion of euro in export (more than 12% of the national export).  [Articolo]

[20/06/2016]  Organized on June 20 by Confindustria Toscana Nord in collaboration with ENEA it aims to supply firms with immediate suggestions and personalised assitance for the self diagnosis of energy performances. The workshop is the occasion to receive TOOL SET, developed by ENEA (Agenzia nazionale per le nuove tecnologie, l'energia e lo sviluppo economico sostenibile) for textile sector in the framework of the European project SET for the analysis of the factory performance jointly with energy consumption, production and adopted technologies.  [Sito SET]

ARTISAN : Energy-aware enterprise systems for low-carbon intelligent operations

The ARTISAN project envisions significant reductions (at least 10%) in energy consumption and CO2 emissions of the European Textile Industry by integrating data-capturing technologies, process-based energy measurement and real-time optimization of operations.
It will provide enterprise management systems with services for monitoring and operational decision making, available at each supply chain partner, and, additionally, trading services for energy and carbon permits forging collaboration across supply networks.

Relying on a service-oriented architecture and data capturing through sensors and energy metering devices, expected achievements and technologies to be used of ARTISAN include:

  • an information infrastructure, enabled by AUTO ID, WSN or other hardware components, for efficient capture, storage and communication of energy consumption data;

  • energy performance indicator structures and services for the textile industry;

  • services monitoring, reporting and analyzing energy performance per process;

  • real-time optimization algorithms for planning and scheduling of supply chain processes and enterprise operations in terms of cost reductions and minimum consumption of energy;

  • tools for evaluating overall energy efficiency based on productivity assessment of processes and implicitly of products;

  • intra- and inter-organisational services for energy consumption forecast and trade of energy and CO2;

  • a layered architecture interconnecting the modules in a seamless way, enabling interoperability both internally and among supply chain partners.

Field trials based on representative use-cases drawn from the European textile industry will demonstrate the functionality of the modules and the interconnections in a real context.
Hence, each company is encouraged to become an ARTISAN in energy management, but mostly an ARTISAN in decisions based on energy and environmental indicators in both its day-to-day operations and business partnerships.
