      Comment: To guarantee a usable and intuitive access for SMEs to several European initiatives and platforms that are developing digitalization solutions for manufacturing companies in different areas: robotic solutions, cloudification manufacturing initiatives, CPS platforms implementation, reconfigurable cells, etc..

      The concept of fully automated production systems is no longer a viable vision. High reactivity, agility and adaptability that is required by modern production systems, can only be reached by human operators with their immense cognitive capabilities. New concepts are required, that apply these cognitive principles to support autonomy in the planning processes and control systems of production systems.
