EFFRA Reserach Priorities <ul><li>(1) Sustainable Manufacturing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>People-friendly Factories </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Eco-friendly </li></ul></ul><ul><li>(2) ICT-enables intelligent Manufacturing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Smart Factories </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Digital Factories </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Virtual Factories </li></ul></ul><ul><li>(3) High-productivity Manufacturing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Adpative production equipment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>High-precision manufacturing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Zero-defect manufacturing </li></ul></ul><ul><li>(4) Materials in Manufacturing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Materials efficiency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Manufacturing processes for new high-performing materials </li></ul></ul>08/05/2009 © sirris 2009 | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | Transformations have also been defined for Belgium
  5. 5. Digital & Smart factories...some definitions <ul><li>Digital Factories </li></ul><ul><ul><li>General digital support of all the activities within the process chain from development over process and product planning to production by using virtual working techniques </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Information flow within companies </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Digital models (product, processes, business,..) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>.. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Smart Factories </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The Smart Factory represents a context-sensitive manufacturing environment that can handle turbulences in real-time production using decentralized information and communication structures for an optimum management of production processes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cost efficient, flexible, Mass customisation </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>... </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>In addition: Virtual factories, Networked factories,.. </li></ul><ul><li>Large need for computer support !!! (PLM, PDM,...) </li></ul>10/05/2011 © sirris 2009 | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be |
  6. 6. Example: The EuroShoe Project <ul><li>The whole digital chain (from client to final product) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Design and develop together (different actors) </li></ul></ul>10/05/2011 © sirris 2011 | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | The challenge of EUROShoE Project is the design and manufacturing of customized shoes at a reasonable price for consumers at a much higher level of individual satisfaction
  7. 7. Our kids have interest… <ul><li>The way they use computers </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Functional features & full simulation ! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>We can learn from these games ! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Projects in that topic are being formulated ! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Digital models should include as much as possible information we need within further steps of the product life cycle </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Manufacturing, use phase,… (fully paperless ) </li></ul></ul></ul>10/05/2011 © sirris 2011 | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be |
  8. 8.
