Smart Manufacturing which is often equated with ‘Industry 4.0’ leverages the Big Data trend of advances in volume, velocity, and variety of data, and applies ‘Big Data analytics’ to make sense of it by improving existing analysis capabilities and providing new capabilities such as predictive analytics.
The Hbubble station is now fully operational on ZF line. It represents the joint effort of ZF and ITAINNOVA and will help in the determination of the output pressure, one of the main parameters of brake boosters systems.
Thanks to the implementation of the STREAM-0D solution, Standard Profil experienced great improvements in data management: process data are now merged with product data, allowing a better control of the production. It is Standard Profil itself that, in this article, tells the story of this advancement.
Fersa Bearings is implementing STREAM-0D solution in the production line. The article provides a detailed explanation of how defective bearings are identified along the production process.
To operate in real-time, complex simulation models such the ones implemented in STREAM-0D need to cut down computational times while saving the reliability of information. This is where the notion of ‘sparsity’ comes into play.
Real-time simulation is a key component in Zero-Defect Manufacturing (ZDM), the new approach towards total quality management. Because quality is not just a matter of detecting non-compliant products, but reducing also their amount.
Many manufacturing processes are still supervised and managed by humans, therefore a high-quality user experience is critical to obtain valuable information and interact with machines. STREAM-0D solution requires a dedicated interface able to manage multiple levels of information.
Standard Profil makes sealing profiles for automotive manufacturers all around the world and it is one of STREAM-0D end-users. In this article Cetri, that in the project leads data fusion, data sparsification and data-driven modelling, provides a glimpse of the activities carried out on Standard Profil’s production line.
‘Technology transfer’ is a recurring concept when speaking of innovation, new technologies and how to transform brilliant ideas into real world applications.
Cloud storage and computing, data acquisition and cloud-based communications for the interoperability of the different tools are essential components of the STREAM-0D solution. Within the project, IES provide tools to manage data more effectively.
