Data collection requires homogenization of the data prior to processing it. This can create a challenge to the companies since data have varicose formats and schemas. This paper discusses the implementation of data collection framework using the PLANTCockpit open source platform, which is an integration platform for business processes. The framework is extended to fetch data from heterogeneous sources and then, allow the user to select the relevant data that matches his/her needs. In addition to this, the extendable framework also makes it possible to select the output data structure based on the user's requirements. Defining such a framework can reduce company's efforts for reshaping and modifying their architectures to handle new challenges posed by the ever-changing data. The framework not only restricts one to collection and transformation, but also provides an option to perform available processing techniques on the transformed data structure. The proposed framework has been tested on a cloud-based platform provided by the Cloud Collaborative Manufacturing Networks (C2NET) project.
