Abstract

There is a lack of access to training tools., best practice guides and knowledge repositories to help with the digital switch to Industry 4.0. Consequently., in this paper., the ProAccel (Productivity Accelerator) platform design is outlined. The system is a modular cloud-based multimedia platform that employs advanced data analytics and gamification techniques., such as Virtual Reality (VR)., to revolutionise the way productivity information is shared to support businesses in their uptake of digital technologies in the Industry 4.0 environment. We present our findings from a 4 month case study., involving over 100 UK-based companies. The resulting research was used to construct a prototype of the ProAccel platform. As an evaluation., a simulated user evaluation of the platform using a guestimate model derived from a KLM analysis is conducted as an analysis of the platform's functionality.
