D2.5. KPIs and Evaluation Criteria. Deliverable to the AEOLIX project.
The main objective of this deliverable is to present the elements of the evaluation framework of the AEOLIX platform. From a thorough investigation of the concept Living Lab, this deliverable strives to identify what constitutes a "best practice" Living Lab for the Freight Transportation sector. The Living Lab to be implemented can be categories into three categries: 1. Hub, port, terminal, 2. Supply chain visibility and vertical control, and 3. Network optimisation, identifying management needs, data needs and putputs, and the intelligence level needed. The FESTA FOT methodology is presented as the evaluation approach adapted to freight transportation. How to determine Functions, Use Cses, Research Questions, and Hypotheses is discussed in some detail. The 11 Living Labs (LLs) are addressed, and suitable research questions are derived from the objectives of each LL. This is the first step to determine the Performance Indicator (PIs). A section on acceptance and trust is included. The iteration element will be very important to keep in mind when the use cases, research questions, hypotheses and PIs are developed. The deliverable ends with short sections on measures, data collection and evaluation criteria.
