Nowadays manufacturing ICT platforms provide a number of useful tools, including sensors', wireless networks, mobile devices, MES, ERP and information management systems, support shop-floor and back-office personnel in a series of activities. However, there is a long way to go before the huge amount of information gathered and generated by such ICT systems is presented in a manner that can truly speed up production processes, enable immediate reaction to issues and shortcomings. - Information distribution usually neglects different user roles in a typical production facility. The information source is not aware of the role of the information receiver and thus fails at delivering the required subset. - In many cases information infrastructure fails to successfully aggregate and manage data from factory-wide sensor networks as well as from various data sources such as MES or ERP, analyse such data and deliver it in a context-based manner to different users. - Cognitive load, especially of shop-floor operators working under harsh conditions, is not properly addressed during information distributing. - User Interfaces are often too complex and require much too effort to follow and use effectively either in harsh shop-floor environment or in back-office. Sense&React project envisages overcoming the above mentioned issues via: - The use of customised, role-specific user interfaces provided through mobile devices in order to support the shop-floor personnel with the adequate amount of information also considering the cognitive load when performing certain operations. - The development of new information structures and information flow approaches so as to optimise the load of information presented to the different users at the shop-floor. - Development and application of factory-wide optimization methods that utilize real-time data, such as personnel, asset or part location data in order to optimize production performance, energy efficiency and safety.
|Total budget - Public funding:||8 959 218,00 Euro - 5 822 723,00 Euro|
|Call topic:||Smart Factories: Energy-aware, agile manufacturing and customisation (FoF.ICT.2011.7.1)|
Comment: Safety alerts and support.
Comment: Sense&React information distribution system will support the operators/workers with delivering work instructions at the working station. This will help operators coping with high product variance and customization.
Comment: Sense&React combines a factory wide network of sensors with personal mobile devices of the users and intelligent manufacturing information management in real-time.
