Demonstrator 3 – Predict remaining useful life
The level of confidence of prediction has been evaluated by inducing real machine failure, in order to compare prediction and actual failure. Avoid or better anticipating failures it will cost less then if the same failure occurs during normal operation also collateral damage like scrap parts will be reduced
Interactive immersive technologies for process planning (i.e. fixturing sequencing), has been developed; it is envisaged to use commercial of the shelf software (COTS) and to enhance its functionality by developing add on modules. Especially discrete event, using plant simulation software such as Lanner’s Witness, will be used to asses and optimize the sequencing of processes.
