The idea of ‘Factory of the future’ is strongly connected with transformation. Factories transform production processes introducing intelligent sensors, gathering systems and triggers the need for more accurate data. Zero-Defect Manufacturing (ZDM) paradigm lays within the very concept of factory of the future.
CETRI, that in STREAM-0D is in charge of data fusion, data sparsification and data-driven models, works closely with end-users to reduce the variability in the context of product performance so to better meet the requirements for suppliers.
Car braking systems represent essential safety features for drivers, therefore they are subject to continuous optimization. ZF, which is one of the three end-users of the STREAM-0D project, implements ROMs and AI in its lines to keep braking actuation units features under control.
The extrusion of profiles is, for many reasons, a complex process: overcoming this complexity would result in a remarkable advancement in the manufacturing process. STREAM-0D project is tackling this challenge by implementing technologies able to monitor and control different aspects of the process. Standard Profil, one of STREAM-0D end-users, provides an insight on this subject.
The manufacturing process of tapered roller bearings consists of rings machining processes and components assembly. Environmental, process and machine parameters influence manufacturing, affecting the dimensions of the final product. Fersa Bearings, as STREAM-0D end-user, is tackling errors caused by temperature variations in order to eliminate dimensional uncertainty.
The ways in which process manufacturing and discrete manufacturing are respectively controlled differ a lot. Dealing with discrete manufacturing, STREAM-0D requires the implementation of sophisticated analysis within the process. This activity is managed by STAM, which in this article for the Bits Of STREAM-0D inititative, outlines the features of such approach. STAM is an Italian …
For this new Bits Of STREAM-0D episode, the Institut de Calcul Intensif (ICI) of the École Centrale de Nantes explains why, in the last decade, Reduced Order Modeling (ROM) has emerged as a key tool in simulation-based engineering sciences.
This article, provided by IES as part of the ‘Bits of STREAM-0D’ series, illustrates how cloud based tools can be used to achieve real-time control in manufacturing for zero-defects and production process flexibility.
Zero defects during the production process? It can be done with STREAM-0D, a project aimed at improving production in real-time through the introduction of predictive models. Here is how this EU-funded project works.
Industry 4.0 created the right conditions for the concept of Zero-Defects Manufacturing (ZDM) to develop as a subject of interest and industrial breakthrough achievement. LMS, partner of the STREAM-0D project, highlights the main techniques and methods involved in the ZDM process.
