Towards circular ecomomy
Specifics for Project DES-MOLD | Feature-Based Design and Modelling for Injection-molding Optimization
Added value and impact
Project specific Kanban
Comment: Environmental impact: improvement sustainability of production processes and tools since Des-MOLD will reduce the need for mock-up tools, and scrap pieces will be decreased thanks to the optimal designs and sensorization at the design level. Furthermore, Scrap reduction strategy has a direct impact on energy consumption reduction (less scraped parts are produced).
Comment: Given the geometry of the part, type of material, mould’s material and defects to be avoid, the system combines a knowledge-based system (KBS) based on past experiences with designers social debates for providing a set of recommendations, enabling to update the knowledge database by reusing and adapting solutions from previous designs.
