The main objective of WP8 is to supervise the integration across all solutions and innovative prototypes. Solutions, which are developed in WP5, 6 and 7, are integrated before being shipped to demonstration sites to be installed. WP8 uses defined overarching architecture from WP1, also taking into account specific requirements from the demonstration cases. The main objectives of WP8 are:
- Further define integrated system architecture from WP1
- Specify requirements towards interfaces between different building blocks
- Coordinate integration activities, linking WP5, WP6 and WP7 into integrated solution
- Implement testing procedure, consisting of unit testing, laboratory prototype testing, factory acceptance testing (FAT), site acceptance testing (SAT) and coordinate transfer of the system into real environment
WP8 will coordinate the deployment of complete system in the specific demonstration site environment. It will follow an equal top-down and bottom-up approach, taking into account both the functional capabilities of the developed solutions and the technical requirements and constraints of individual demonstration cases as instances of customised application of the integrated system. The final objective of WP8 is to enable smooth implementation and proper operation of systems installed within the demonstration WP9.
