Integrated product-service solutions or Product-Service Systems promote a shift from value in exchange to value in use to satisfy customer needs. In this new landscape, manufacturers do not sell a physical product, but its usage (renting, pay-x-use) or its outcome (pay-x-performance). Companies and supply network should focus on reducing the Life Cycle Cost of the Product-Service Systems and exten ...

The goal of zero defect manufacturing encompasses both short and long term perspectives. The short term perspective is to develop and implement a real time process control system that eliminates the production of any faulty component due to variances in materials, components and process properties. The long term perspective is to minimize all failures by continuous optimizing of the production pro ...

Advanced Intelligent Machine Adaptive Control System (AIMACS)

Start date: Aug 1, 2010, End date: Jul 31, 2013,

"Current machining technologies and practices have many inefficiencies. Numerous unpredictable machining variables often cause overload and unstable conditions and catastrophic damage to the machine tool system. In addition, this results in frequent disruptions in production that can often be excessive, leading to considerable losses in productivity, capital and energy resources. In an effort to p ...

Non-hierarchical production networks are a common environment of today’s manufacturing companies. Each company is facing multiple and dynamic relationships within several networks. This complex situation causes permanent delivery delays. Delayed supplies lead to wasteful turbulences in the entire network and to expensive compensations. For the European manufacturing industry the loss of efficiency ...

Energy Software Tools for Sustainable Machine Design (ESTOMAD)

Start date: Feb 1, 2010, End date: Sep 30, 2012,

This project addresses all production machine sectors (e.g. machine tools, agricultural machines, textile machines). Design approaches for these machines, which are currently performance and capacity driven, have to evolve to approaches where resource efficiency is optimized. To do so, energy efficiency has to be taken into account as a key parameter in the design process.The main goal of the ESTO ...
