Software Integration Architect

As Software Integration Architect, you define new software architectures for assembly cells in Industry 4.0 plant production systems.

Companies that want to make the transformation towards Industry 4.0 work together with Flanders Make to fit out their production systems with the latest technologies. We study concepts and develop prototype work cells for the flexible and interconnected factory of the future.

Introduce Industry 4.0 in the assembly cell, support operators with augmented reality

As Software Integration Architect, you work together with companies and researchers on prototype work cells in high-tech research projects focussing on Industry 4.0 and the factory of the future. You are responsible for connecting various new high-tech devices with the existing business information flow (MES, ERP and other systems), the reliable management of large amounts of collected production and research data and the integration of new smart services in an operational assembly.

In a team of researchers with expertise in robotics, embedded systems, virtual and augmented reality and production processes, you make a difference with your software and integration knowledge.

You:

  • Design – together with your team – new work cells for living labs such as the Flanders Make lab and for new workplaces in companies;
  • Define the new software architecture for individual work cells and for the integration of multiple work cells and their environment;
  • Connect the existing information flow with new smart systems and make sure that the whole can work in practice;
  • Work together with the research team, external service providers and the production departments of companies;
  • Identify opportunities offered by the latest software developments (a/o micro-services, event-driven architecture, Cloud, IIoT, big data) and co-define new research projects.

You have:

  • A Master’s degree (preferably in a relevant discipline such as Information Technology, Computer Science...);
  • At least 5 to 10 years of relevant experience in software, both in designing the architecture and in its practical realisation.
  • Experience with protocols within IIoT and corporate data handling software (MES, ERP) are extra assets;
  • A good overview of the opportunities offered by new software and technology developments and their applications.

You are:

  • Fascinated by the opportunities of new technologies for the production area;
  • An initiator;
  • Analytically strong and a conceptual thinker;
  • Result-oriented and hands-on in the realisation of software designs;
  • A team player who can build lasting relationships in projects with many stakeholders;
  • Eager to learn and driven to increase your own expertise and that of your team.

Contribute to industrial innovation with ownership

The projects that you will contribute to bring technology to the production area of companies and support operators (both ergonomically and cognitively) in their increasingly complex job.

You will, for instance, work on dynamic work instructions for operators, multimedia applications (smart glasses, projection, smart displays) at the workplace, intuitive robots that interact with the operator and virtual reality training sessions...

This animated film illustrates how Flanders Make sees operators functioning in the factory of the future, working side by side with cobots and autonomous mobile robots. All research starts from a generic theoretical point of view with one or more business cases that require a working prototype.
